Church Folks

Impressed in spirit that the good we do comes from the church. At face value that is more than I imagined of the gifts and talents that provide usury for the works of God.

I’m not fearful, but I get the chills on a good day. Knowing well that the day of judgement will provide an accurate account of love in the first degree.

Realize I trivialize the civilized.

A popular identifying statement of the church states that you are the church and I am too. An open door without being judge-mental is not so simple to do. It is better to claim a supportive role to that massive organism under construction than to boast ourselves more perfect than the it. Being under construction in every generation and more perfect than the last. Even by the standard of the money changer God finds usury.

The church is perfect but nighter you or I can lay claim to perfection in of ourselves. It is a perfect organism whose maker and builder is God.

Abraham was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, a city designed and built by God.

To which a Christian can only support with our own personal gifts and talents. Having faith in the works of God the Father who sent us His Son. To be the chief corner stone and His disciples/apostles the foundation. Built up in Christ, decorated with countless individuals doing what we do to the glory of God.

Father Of Faith

Abraham was a wealthy and righteous man, full of faith beyond his time.

Nevertheless faith didn’t hinder his well from going dry.

Rich or poor, cursed or blessed, God has no pleasure in faithlessness. Without faith it is impossible to please God.

To live in harmony through any and every circumstance is the workings of faith. The substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen. By which Abraham offered the best example.

‘Dusty Ass’

No offense given and none taken in the ignorance of speech or the foolishness of preaching to save my dusty ass. Jesus said, at the junction there’s an Ass with a colt. Tell the handler I have need of it. The Creator entered Jerusalem in the darkness of Light. Riding on the colt of an ass shielded from the dust of the ground the dusty ones shouted, hosanna to the King! He could have chosen a well trained Arabian Stallion dancing to the beat of a different drum, but He didn’t, not yet. John said, “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True.

The best artist is known in His original form. Unedited straight from the horse mouth. Dare to confess what you believe or to say as it is heard beyond the season of time.

To remove the human definitions, influenced by personal experiences of others. Who needs a father when God Himself fathered us. What do you say? or who do you say? In the winds of time.

That endless revolving door beneath a pretty blue sky is nature finest. For as long as there is time there will be seed time and harvest. There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

So it is, the Spirit of the Lord moved upon the face of the waters, He made it holy.

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness no comprende.

Dust to dust we are and to dust again, the Spirit of the Lord became a man. There He laid in the cleft of the rock. The Holy One without corruption rose from the dead. Spirit He was and to Spirit He returned. Knitting together the fabric of time.

The Light shines in the darkness, beneath the pretty blue sky. When God became a savior to whoever believes in Him or to save our dusty ass from the wages of sin. The wages of sin is death but that gift of God is eternal life. No offense given and none taken in the ignorance of speech or the foolishness of preaching to save my dusty ass.

Jonah’s Run

by Gairey

This generation seek for a sigh but none given except for Jonah in the belly of the whale three days.

The word of the Lord came to Jonah, go to Nineveh preaching repentance.

Had it been the thunderous voice of God Jonah might have avoided the belly of hell. But no, it was the word of God that came to him with the option to obey.

Gairey

To protest the word of God for personal, political or religious reasons will always translate to acts of disobedience in any religion.

Gairey

Three days in hell for Jonah and for Jesus was a sign of repentance.

Jonah’s run is a depressive state with the word of God in hot pursuit.

Gairey

New American Standard Bible

So he was saying to the crowds who were going out to be baptized by him, “You offspring of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

John The Baptist

David said ‘if I make my bed in hell God is there.’ Death is no relief from the word of God for our lives. Jonah’s willingness to perish for his rebellious attitude on two occasions probes no escaping the word of God for our lives.

Gairey

Jonah’s the prophet was secure in knowledge that nothing can separate us from the love of God. Even though we the people of God sometimes can’t tell the difference between our right and left hand. God’s conversation with Jonah concerning the people of Nineveh is that we care about the life of things above people in ignorance of God.

Gairey

Jonah’s Run is a repentance never to be repented of. A three day journey consolidated in one day for the mercies of God. Who is attracted to people living in ignorance of Him. By reason, this gospel of the kingdom must be preached to all nations before the end of life as we understand it.

Shepherd’s Call


The Shepherd did inventory and came up short. So He went the for the lost. Every encounter was an excitement, but no answer.

For a thousands days as one He preached.
My sheep knows my voice and another they will not follow.
Then one day like a thousand He heard the bleating of a contrite spirit.

He raised it to his chest,
from the lost and found they returned happy ever after. The End

“And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd.”
‭‭John‬ ‭10:16‬ ‭RSV‬‬

‘Yes I‘ by Gairey

https://gairey.hearnow.com/

I Am

‘That I Am?’

To every thing there is a season
22 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better,
than that a man should rejoice in his own works;
for that is his portion:
for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?

What I perceive is this:
What I am can be explained in the lineage of my ancestors. Who I am transcends my forefathers because they are gone and I am their living point of reference. Like water pouring from Mt. Zion creating tributaries that flows to the valley below. I am is a sinner saved by grace. A living reference forward in the Son of the living God. I am His inheritance and He is mine.

…,,having the eyes of your hearts enlightened….. and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe,

It was God who reference Himself to Moses as I Am who I Am. A credit not as a descendant of slaves but of who he was in the linage of God going forward. The linage of a promise made to faithful Abraham.
I am righteous in my time because of who God is. Not to think of myself anymore than I should. But I know that this little i am is a child of the Great I Am. Flowing from Zion my spirit will forward to heaven where Jesus is. Forever God and for ever man.
‘Be Righteous In Your Time’
Men of the Bible dubbed as righteous in their time never intended to prove themselves righteous. Men like Noah, Abram, Moses, David and Jesus Son of Mary Son of God. So many then and now. Hidden from the eyes of the world. Known only to God. They were true in the integrity of their own works, accounted for in the righteousness of God in their time. Some say that the time is good. Some say the time is evil. There is a time for everything under the Sun. Delight in the Lord and He will give the desire of our heart by blessing the work of your hands.

I am not educated in the knowledge of any particular subject. Which is to say, I don’t know everything about anything. But I can perceive the difference between what I am and who I am. I am more than a jack of all trade and master of none. With prayer and supplication I’ve made my request known unto to God.
Unlearned men according to the scribes and Sadducees attributing our confidence to being with Jesus. Trendy in our time with the gospel of Jesus. Surpassing the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees. Though they were all descendants of Abraham they were not all children of Abraham.

It is what it is and I am who I am.

Ask me how I am and I’ll say, I’m good. Knowing fully well that only God is good.
The Word identifies that what I am is not who I am. My temptations are identified with the tempter because of what I am. Who I am is a born again believer in Jesus Christ. There was never a time in my adult life when I didn’t believed in God. Even when my soul was lost to who i am and wanted to be. Being far from God in my heart.

….For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

I’m not upset cause I am not as you are or whatever. I am righteous in my time because of who I am not what i am. I’m standing right with God by the righteousness of Jesus. Who can say that Jesus Lord except by the Spirit of God. Him who came down from God and has ascended back again. We can’t go to Him but He will come to us in the fullness of time.
Don’t fake it, you can make it
It is pretentious being who you are not and God despises a hypocrite. Slandering His name in false pretenses. Ashamed of God and God being ashamed of us. As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Self identified by what we think. Cross reference the Word and fill in the blank. Try the integrity of the Word to see if it is of God. There are many false pretenders who are not born again with the renewing of their minds. The mind is enmity against God irregardless of what they say or profess.
“Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and let the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and let the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”
I am good with that because I know who I am.

No Pain No Gain
If you could do it all over again?
What or who would you change?
What difference would that make?
Pain is pain no matter what or who or it hurts.
Anyone hypocritical about that is lying to themselves and is without empathy.
Nighter hot or cold in the mouth of God.
Spewed to the ground like milk in your orange juice.
Like the unborn aborted by its parents.
The born again is who we are.
Bob Marley said in his time,
you running and you running away ,
but you can’t run away from yourself.
The scriptures say,
“People are like grass;
their beauty is like a flower in the field.
The grass withers and the flower fades.

Wasup Dog?
Whenever we cross or interbreed a dog, that pet has all the characteristics and personality of a wolf. The voracious bark of a K-9 or the monotonous yapping of a Maltese. In the heart that dog thinks it is a wolf. We are all children of God with or without obedience. Like an untrained dog that weary it’s master and is rejected for a house trained puppy.

All flesh is like grass
whose life is in the blood.

I have given this blood to you to make peace with me on the altar.
Blood is needed to make peace with me. Jesus said,
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets;
I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear,
not the smallest letter,
not the least stroke of a pen,
will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished”

The integrity of a man is how much we believes what the Word says. That God came to earth by Jesus whose shed blood is our ultimate sacrifice to God.
That we are born and shaped in iniquity.
That same iniquity that was found in the heart of Satan.
Changing the integrity of a mighty angel to that of a demon.
Have a problem with that?
Check your point of reference.
Happy with that?
Check the source of reference.
Hopefully you can see more than yourselves
and that the source of our integrity is in God.
If I make my bed in Hell the integrity of the Word will find me.
So don’t be offended when we say that the integrity of the Word is Jesus, who is I Am.
