Find Your Tribe. Love Them Hard.

Yes, some have gotten the Greatest Commandment down. They truly love the Lord with all their heart, soul, and mind, and that’s wonderful. Our relationship with Him matters the most. The Apostle Paul said, “it is my determined purpose to know him…”

But what about the second commandment? Jesus said that it’s just as important as the first. We are to love our neighbor as ourselves.

Who’s our neighbor? Only those that are in your circle? The hurting, the grieving? Those walking in a storm or a valley? We have all been there. That prompting we get from the Holy Spirit when He whispers someone’s name to us, or those we see before us with signposts shouting, “there is an issue here”? Do we think a message on Facebook or a text is enough to pull anyone out of a demonic fog that’s been sent to destroy them?

NO! It’s NOT ENOUGH! Call them, meet with them personally.

Connecting with people, looking into their eyes, not to “shoot the breeze “, but instead to determine the heart of the matter. Then we can pray heaven down on them, and stay with them until His Peace is present. Actual relationships with His people, “being there”, can change, even save, a life.

Mental illness is real. The Spirit realm is real. Let us wake up, and pray up. Let’s put on our armor and march forward with LOVE into the enemies camp, and pull them out, one by one, through the power of real relationships.

We don’t have to have the title of a pastor to minister to those around us. We are to STAY STRONG, STAY READY, and breathe life into our circle every time we have a chance. Let us make the MOST of every opportunity for these days are evil.

I’m DONE with the enemy taking people I love out. I desire to STAY READY and FULL OF THE SPIRIT, and to declare, “not on my watch”. Friend, the Kingdom is counting on us. Someone in our lives needs us right now.

I pray God gives us eyes to see, and that we all realize this life is not about “me”.

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  Matthew 22: 37-39

Love Jesus. Tell people about Jesus. Repeat.

Hi Friends and Family,

I know it’s been a while since I sent out an email so I wanted to let you know that I’m alive still!… my good friends from Los Angeles (actually more like family) are about to take another trip to Haiti, to one of the poorest villages in the world this coming Saturday… this will make my friend Bryan’s 20th Trip! Isn’t that Amazing?  Please, Please pray for the team!

Sincere Thanks again for praying for my personal mission’s adventure to bring Christ and Christmas to a small village of Fond Doux in Haiti this past December. As always with God, he hears every prayer and always does Exceeding, Abundantly above all we could ask, think hope or even imagine.We delivered beans and rice, walked hut to hut and prayed for the sick, delivered Christmas gifts, gave this little village not one but two Christmas parties, yes, I was Santa Claus. Held a four-day revival, and so much more! ALL in two weeks! So many faces, so many hugs and prayers and lot’s of tears, my favorite part of this great adventure was preaching the gospel under the stars three different times and watching hearts respond to the gospel and say yes to Jesus, nothing compares to simply telling the story and watching the miracle. God’s presence was so strong the entire trip, no words on how thankful and grateful I am for every moment, I’m still pinching my self that it all happened. We make it difficult but the Gospel is simple… Love Jesus. Tell people about Jesus. Repeat.

I’m sharing all this to tell you… The same team I went with this past December will be leaving again this very weekend. I gave you the opportunity to help partner with me… and you responded and for that “I thank you” I don’t want (my family) this team of passionate JESUS follower’s to leave the USA this weekend empty-handed and I am most certainly giving all that I can, will you?

Proverbs 19:17 Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done.

I know you’ve been supporting my ministry over the years through reading my blog, hearing me in person or over the radio and my heart gives you a standing ovation for your prayers and even financial support.  Fond Doux, a small village 50 miles west of Port-au-Prince, needs real help right now. Will you be answered prayer for them?

God want’s to help them but it will only happen through your giving to this team leaving THIS WEEKEND! The need is urgent!

Now is the time! Any gift of ANY size will help GREATLY!

Whoever, Is that you? I’m a Whoever! is kind to the poor lends to the LORD! and HE WILL REWARD YOU for what YOU have done!

LIVE TODAY IN ALL CAPS!

Psalms 51 verses 12-13 say that David has just blown it… He has sinned.  He has messed up BIG!  We see however that he is running back to God and this is his prayer…

“Father, Restore unto me the JOY of thy salvation” and then … ”I will teach transgressors thy way and then sinners will be converted into you.” 
NOTICE…When do they do this?  WHEN THE JOY OF THE LORD is RESTORED unto YOU!  THAT is WHEN YOU ARE THE MOST EFFECTIVE for the Kingdom of God.

Now do you see why the enemy fights so hard to steal it?

Joy is Strength!

JOY is a TRUE Spiritual FORCE.

Nehemiah 8:10 SAYS…THE “JOY” of the LORD is your strength. When the enemy wants to pull you down he goes after your Joy first.

You might be saying, I hear you but man…I’ve got issues…my family has some issues. Listen, we ALL DO!  If you don’t think you have issues then “that’s your issue!”  I’m sharing that with a bit of sarcasm but actually that does seem to be “the issue” for some folks, they believe they are reaching perfection.

John 15:1  JESUS said: “I have told you this so that MY joy be in YOU and your JOY may be COMPLETE.  IN LIFE you will have good times and bad times.”  But then JESUS said…”I want my JOY (my strength) to be in you and your JOY to be complete.”

We don’t base our JOY on our circumstances WE base our JOY on the WORD OF GOD!


Hang on to your joy; don’t let the enemy or anyone steal it.  It’s the strength you need to be most effective and to finish your race with JOY.

God Bless America, Land that I love.

Founding Father John Adams, to his wife Abigail on July 3, 1776:

“(Independence Day) will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other. From this time forward forever more. You will think me transported with enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure, that it will cost us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the gloom I can see the rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end is more than worth all the means. And that Posterity will triumph in that days’ transaction, even though we should rue it, which I trust in God we shall not.”

– George Washington

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not on religion but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” – Patrick Henry

“Freedom is the last, best hope of earth.” – Abraham Lincoln

2 Chronicles 7:14 – If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Proverbs 14:34 – Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.

“I speak as a man of the world to men of the world; and I say to you, Search the Scriptures! The Bible is the book of all others, to be read at all ages, and in all conditions of human life; not to be read once or twice or thrice through, and then laid aside, but to be read in small portions of one of two chapters every day, and never to be intermitted, unless by some overruling necessity.” – John Quincy Adams

“We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that ‘except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it.’ I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel.”
– Benjamin Franklin (From the debates at the Constitutional Convention, June of 1787)

“I therefore beg leave to move that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessing on our deliberations, be held in the Assembly every morning…”
– Benjamin Franklin, 1787 Constitutional Convention

– Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence

“I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. We need God’s help to guide our nation through stormy seas. But we can’t expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him over on the shelf in our day-to-day living.”  – Ronald Reagan

“And finally, my fellow Americans, may every dawn be a great new beginning for America and every evening bring us closer to that shining city upon a hill…My fellow Americans, on behalf of both of us, goodbye, and God bless each and every one of you and God bless this country we love.” – Ronald Reagan

“Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.” -Ronald Reagan
