Hear what the SPIRIT is saying the SPIRIT OF THE LORD JESUS, is saying to our little spirits in our eternal family.<br><br>If you our lost and forsaken not not caused by me but our unforgiven sin by the HOLY TRINITY alone(GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON, GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT). MERCY to you for I once was there thriving on the outside, but on the inside completely dead body, soul, and spirit.<br><br>First step accept GOD'S gift of HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS to replace, put to death and be forgiven of our and your unrighteousness. Everybody has some or different relationship with GOD or God's, but noone gets to have a different relationship from OUR FATHER.(his way, his truth, his life)<br><br>For my eternal family the three wants; by GOD'S continual grace and mercy, you should not WANT what somebody else has, you should not WANT what GOD does not want you to have, you should not WANT someone to want what they do not want at all.<br><br>We have everything we need in CHRIST JESUS, if your my eternal brother or eternal sister GOD can help us with this, and he has already H-E-L-P-E-D(pause,,,remember his sacrifice and gift to all who called on HIS HOLY NAME).<br><br>If we just followed the LORD JESUS, we would not need podcasts, self help audios, or any soul medication.(do not assume me to fast I believe and HE BELIEVES in his creation and GOD making good out of anything). If the LORD JESUS continues to do what brings HIM GLORY through your personality or talents stay the course MY ETERNAL FAMILY.<br><br>BUT I will say if you think GOD N-E-E-D-S you too do anything your decision may be unwise, if you want what he does not want; your on the borderline of sorcery and witchcraft which will eventually and already has left you blinded and open for attacks, or will eventually give birth to SIN.<br><br>For one simple reason,☝ HE DOES NOT NEED YOU, YOUR NOT A PLAYTHING OR AN OBJECT. EVERYONE WAS MADE IN GOD'S IMAGE, but GOD in the riches of HIS MERCY(JEALOUS, PERSISTENT, FAITHFUL, A HOLY TRUE LOVE) does not need you, or anyone. <br><br>HE-WANTS-U-GLORY-TO-GOD<br><br>If we simply follow him and not follow our excuses:to tired(HE IS OUR STRENGTH)do not play well with others(HE HOLDS US TOGETHER)nobody supports me(HE IS OUR ALL SUFFICENT SACRIFICE)I fail all the time(HIS LOVE AND MECY IS UNFAILING)I do not know what to say or reach out to one another(HE IS OUR PROVIDER, PROVIDING WORDS, OPPORTUNITY, RESOURCES FROM HIM AS THE ULTIMATE SOURCE)I will just stick to my abilities(HE IS WILLING TO SHOW HIMSELF A REVEALING OF HIMSELF IF YOU LET HIM BE ABLE FOR YOU)<br><br>I tony tate(that's me)have let people take advantage of my own insecurities, weaknesses, accepted false hope, false love, false truth, and a past that leaves me no conscience and practically inept.<br><br>BUT GOD does not give me a pass on my sins, my past family background, my excuses, and my shortcomings. Still have to move on and move with THE LORD HIS SPIRIT for obedience, for confidence, for strength, for direction, for detours and then back on track, for enjoying and submitting to his painful but gets more pleasant WILL.<br><br>FOLLOW THE LORD JESUS an be the influence not be influenced. HAVE NOT FIGURED THIS OUT YET, IN HIM HE IS FINISHED, IN US STILL WORK TO BE DONE IN US😄😄<br><br>If GOD is saying copy and paste this then please, if nothing hope you enjoy the encouragement.

Subject: Crucify the desires that lead astray

James 4:1-10<br><br>What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.<br><br>Proverbs 24:30-31<br><br>30 I went past the field of a slacker<br><br>and by the vineyard of a man lacking judgment.<br><br>31 Thorns had grown up everywhere,<br><br>thistles had covered the ground,<br><br>and the stone wall was broken down.<br><br> This is what happens when someone does not crucify the lusts of the flesh that cause them to go astray from the Lord. Through the Spirit of God and walking in and with His Spirit we keep thorns from growing in our soul and we keep our 'stone wall' (protection from the spiritual entities of darkness) intact we keep our soul built up in the word and the Holy Spirit and zealousness and joy and in Peace by the power of God.

Subject: God's waiting for you more than you for Him

You can't come into a kings presence if you don't come properly.<br>You can't come into God's presence unless it is done properly.<br>Many people say they have never felt God. Well He has made a way to come into His presence and it is through repentance. When you want life more than this existence. When you want love and hope more than your self satisfying ways which don't satisfy you anymore.<br>When you need help that can only come from one place and you "believe" that it can only come from one place and you believe it long enough to leave off your evil selfish ways well then the master of the banquet comes to your rescue and this is told and talked about all the time. <br>You don't know what your missing out on until you give your heart and mind over to knowing God and His ways through the letter He wrote you in His bible.<br>The enemy knows about it and he can't stand it.

Subject: Spiritual New Birth

John 3:3<br>Jesus replied, “Truly, truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”<br>When you are born again you receive a brand new spirit from heaven.<br>Your spiritual eyes, your spiritual ears, your spiritual understanding, your spiritual digestive system they're all made brand new.<br>Jesus said in the book of John that after He has risen from the dead and after He goes back to the Father and ascend back up into heaven He would send the Holy Spirit which would convict the world of being a sinner, convince the world that he is righteous, and convince the world that satan stands condemned and defeated already.<br>This is part of the knowledge of salvation.<br>Believing in this knowledge and walking in this knowledge is the will of the Father for every human being to attain.<br>The Son of God was sent to Earth to do just this to get every human being that He could to be convinced of this type of knowledge.<br>He gave up his life and He died in our place to try to get people to believe and trust in God's love so they would be convinced also of the truth.

Subject: Praise God

It's interesting how discouragement often comes right after encouragement. Basically, it's like a reposte. Things go well for a moment and then the enemy comes in and before God properly gets the glory we have reason to complain again. I think we should learn to hold onto our praise for God longer and longer and to not quit praising Him just because we feel different. Also, we should not praise Him only because of how we feel. We should praise Him because of His unchanging character and his unfailing love for us. Some bumps in the road may not even be noticed it we are heading for the destination and less focused on the hiccups. God knows how this all fits together. Let's trust and praise Him.

Proverbs 4:23<br>Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.<br><br>Just the slightest thought can have an impact on your life. <br><br>Imagine with me that your soul is steadfast in being assertive to your thoughts and the slightest thought can shape the power of your atmosphere.<br><br>Only Jesus can renew your heart from where your thoughts originate and if you remain in that renewal then whatever you say will happen for you.<br><br>John 16:12<br>Yet I have many things to say to you, but you are not able to bear them now.

Subject: Trust grounded obedience

The faith God wants us to have.<br><br>This dude understood and believed with his heart that Jesus didn't have to clear out forests or break boulders Himself but had such power under Him to get the job done that He only had to command it to be done and somehow it would be carried out. Tell the Lord you believe this also.<br><br>The Faith of the Centurion<br>(Luke 7:1–10; John 4:43–54)<br><br>5When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came and pleaded with Him, 6“Lord, my servantc lies at home, paralyzed and in terrible agony.”<br><br>7“I will go and heal him,” Jesus replied.<br><br>8The centurion answered, “Lord, I am not worthy to have You come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell one to go, and he goes; and another to come, and he comes. I tell my servant to do something, and he does it.”<br><br>10When Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those following Him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. 11I say to you that many will come from the east and the west to share the banquet with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12But the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”<br><br>13Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! As you have believed, so will it be done for you.” And his servant was healed at that very hour.

Subject: Israel

Exodus 4:22<br><br>Then tell Pharaoh that this is what the LORD says: ‘Israel is My firstborn son,<br><br>Jesus rose back to life on the 3rd day and Israel came back from the dead too at the turn of the 3rd Millennium! <br><br>Israel was carved out from the nations, after God divided the nations up He created one for Himself from Abraham and his bloodline. Abraham was willing to sacrifice His son who was birthed by the promise of God and not by physical power alone. Issac being a shadow or picture type of Gods Son Jesus who was sacrificed instead of Issac even on the same mountain that Issac carried wood on his back up. Even wood that he would lay down on for a sacrifice that was going to be his own. The bible says in Hebrews that Abraham did this in faith also believing God could bring him back to life again.<br> <br> It is only fitting that since Jesus rose back to physical life on the 3rd day that the nation would do so as well at the turn of the third millennium. Israel as a nation is precious to Jesus as Jesus is to the Father. This is why evil powers in heavenly places want to get rid of Israel kind of like how they killed Jesus. <br><br>God told Abraham, in Genesis 12:3<br><br>I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you; and all the families of the earth will be blessed through you.”<br><br>I have received my biggest blessing in life through Israel and so has every born again believer on earth. The bible was brought through Israel as well as the redemption message.<br><br>Jesus said in John 4:22 when talking to a Samaritan woman:<br>You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews.

To my eternal brothers and sisters, my born again always family; here is brotherly encouragement.<br><br>What you post on social media, or thought, or action, or deed, or voiced, will this be remembered or will it be forgotten.<br><br>Jesus says do not store for yourselves treasures on earth (see this earth is not our final destination until THE LORD RECONSTRUSTS ALL THINGS) that will rust, or could be stolen or destroyed. But store for yourselves treasures in heaven (THE ONLY PLACE THAT CAN NOT BE CONTAMINATED OR CORRUPTED) that will not rust, or could be stolen, or destroyed.<br><br>Speaking for myself, Tony Tate I will definitely will stand before THE FATHER for my unholy actions in my family and marriage, unholy code of conduct, and unsecure and ignorant childhood that has left scars through my whole life.<br><br>But GOD in the riches of HIS MERCY(that is HIS RICHES) has killed my past, put me on HIS solid ground, and there are HIS treasures that HE has worked in me that will last forever.(to break out of this tangent, just saying your not alone if you were wounded from your past, or present circumstances.)<br><br>Now if you have posted something that the LORD JESUS approves; would stand up through storms, erosions, earthquakes, firestorms, or just outlast time be of cheerful courage for HIS FAITHFULNESS has shined through you brother and sisters.<br><br>Now if you posted something for others approval how long will it last; what effect will it have on all humanity that bears THE IMAGE OF GOD. <br><br>This is encouragement that could lead to HIS CONVICTION or a pause in our futile thinking, and GOD'S SPIRIT could begin to knock at the doors of our little spirit. This is not a post only scripture because GOD has an amazing and perfect IN HIM creation(we failed, not HIM, THE TRIUNE EVERLASTING GOD✝️).<br><br>Scripture or any post without GOD'S approval, meaning where is your heart or thoughts, or motives, being lead by today could be snatched and misused by SATAN today, trampled by humanity, or choked out by the busyness and selfish cares of life.<br><br>There are great posts of family and friends, inspiration, many other GOD given resources and jobs, plexus my wife's work from people who have dedicated their lives to use GOD'S natural resources to help people mind, body, and soul. People's real ugly and sorrowful stories, or people who have amazing life's, or rollercoaster ups and down lives. People's GOD has formed and founded and still using HIS formed abilities in people from all lives around the world, and missed so much more of GOD BEING INFINITE in us; and everything on earth created also through HIS WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE, AND UNDERSTANDING.<br><br>But there is a dark and rebellious people who have rejected for the NOW and not what HE has stored in them, what HE wants to store in them now and forever(pray and reach out, not condemn for they are condemned already) that will continue until they are forgotten by GOD and will be with no body just a forsaken soul CONDENMED BY CHRIST, soul forever consumed without parole by GOD'S wrath forever.<br><br>Final thoughts and last post of this year; you can reach out to me by messenger or text, or call, or private message on FACEBOOK. I do not respond on Facebook, I reach out other ways, if you comment brother I will reach out to you, sister GOD is sovereign in all to reach out to you with a true eternal sister in the LORD JESUS.<br><br>You may recall in GOD'S original and foundational WORD there was people giving money at are around the temple in JERUSALEM that provided for the poor and churches and their healing centers, and so many needed places in that city and all around the world(because a tithe or gift out of humanities hands always goes a long way when is placed back to THE FATHER'S UNSELFISH HANDS😃)<br><br>JESUS was watching and commented on this in MARK chapter 12 and LUKE chapter 21 when HE saw them all doing good works but out of popularity or to blessed by others, or just to follow the crowd, no matter what, their purpose was self motivated but when this old widow gave her last two coins All That She Had Left because of her trust in WHO SHE BELIEVED AND FOLLOWED. JESUS says her deed done in only trusting HIM alone and not trusting all around her will never be forgotten in that moment, now today, and forever. <br><br>That's the reason Charlie brown🤣 do everything for HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, HIS GOODNESSES, HIS FAITHFULNESS, HIS GLORY, HIS REPENTANCE,(fail you will, but HIM will never fail in you🤣 Yoda). By action, word, deed, thought, patiently enduring, righteously enduring all GLORY will always go back to HIM.<br><br>PRAYERS and HIS BLESSED SALVATION(to be saved by CHRIST, and saved from the judgement seat of CHRIST)and then HIS SANCTIFICATION( for CHRIST this is sanctification-GOD'S BEGINNING WORK IN YOU AND ON YOU, THAT JOURNEY ENDS WHEN YOU LEAVE THIS LIFE OR HE CALLS ALL OF US TO HIS GLORY THE DEAD IN CHRIST AND ALL THOSE PRESENTLY ON EARTH THAT ARE IN CHRIST AND CHRIST IN THEM).

Subject: God is already working

As I wake up in the morning with the sun streaming through my bedroom window I hear the birds chirping. They are already hard at a day's work finding worms and twigs for nests. They have already eaten breakfast. They do not judge me for having slept in which is good because maybe in my book I am rising early. <br><br>It's the notion that they are already hard at work that catches my mind. I vaguely remember a movie, a John Wayne movie. It seems that at the end of the movie they weren't sure exactly how to close it out. The Hero had triumphed and the wagon train was continuing West. John Wayne told the director he knew just what to do. <br><br>In the final scene of the movie created by John Wayne's authorship, John Wayne's character is sitting at a small round wooden table in the corner of some bar. And unseen character, a voice familiar to those who have been watching the entire story, asks the question, "So, what now?" John Wayne's character stands up and monologues. The gist of that monologue is this.<br><br>I don't know for sure where we're going now or what's going to happen but one thing I do know for sure. When we get there we will find God has already been there and is already hard at work. Fade scene. <br><br>So, that's the beginning of my day. I can't say I know exactly where it's going to go but I know I'll find God there already working. If God eats breakfast then it would be safe to say he's already eaten. If I simply follow his leading and trust him and his preparations then I can know in my heart of hearts that everything has been taken care of. <br><br>I thank Him as my head leaves my pillow. I have a lot to thank him for and I can never do a good enough job but he seems to like it because every time I get up and head into the unknown of my day I find he has already been hard at work and I am always pleased with his craftsmanship.<br><br>So, let's get up and see what God has been working on. Ooh, maybe He'll let us help.
