“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.” Exodus 20:7
WONDERING: If advertising God’s House as a “safe, compassionate, welcoming, accepting haven” yet using “bait and switch” to find it filled with ministry avoiding stereotypes, bias, prejudice, marked partiality, including gender, and respecter for approved ministry persons is compromise, guilty of “False Advertising?”
WONDERING: if using In God’s House False Realism, respecter of persons, trickery, gender/racial over all bias, partiality, manipulation, leader avoidance, leader preferred religious stereotypes and intentionally omitting to yield to the more painful Bible verses is technically fall into “Using God’s Holy Name in vain?”
IMAGINE working and interacting with the grass roots Christian leadership and helps community for 30 years and finding the general lay of the land to be humble, teachable, easily entreated and most 99 percent of the time, emotionally and ministerially true and completely honest. There is basically no divorce in senior leaders and an unspoken but very noticeable basically regional body wide spiritual fruit: “the awesome fear of the Lord.”
AND AS A female out and around our entire region, and nearly almost always, without my husband beside me for more than 25 years, never one single time was I disrespected or demeaned by ministry leader stereotyping based on gender bias. NARY A SINGLE TIME. It was completely emotionally safe.
IMAGINE AGAIN: relocating to the deep southwest where there is pride in one’s “own” ministry, white on white ministry mature leader chauvinism, and a very noticeable lack of the “holy fear of the Lord” in approximately 85 percent of spirit filled tongue talkers. The by product of racing, driving very long distances, superior pride in being “mavericks” and what appear to be a new emphasis ONLY on the “happy fun Bible passages” that help promote a Me Centered Successful Life Style, and which repeatedly emphasize what one can GET from the Lord, and how to raise YOUR own standard of ministry /personal Level.
IT IS NOT AGAINST the ministry focus on “Stuff” or “Positive Mental Attitude” or “OUR Own Leadership Ministry but Never Any More” that disturbs this writer. It is the area wide, speaking directly with regards to charismatics, lack of genuine accepting real agape Love (Ephesians 1:6) AND the lack of positive, wholesome, genuine pure hearted Christ following Fruit.
AFTER REPEATEDLY STUDYING, often interacting up close and personal with various senior ministry, junior ministry, applicants for help, mature leader staff, after 8 years, and much heartbreak, 2 stolen office computers, one stolen digital Korg Keyboard, and absolute mature “professional ministry organizations” assisting the ministry wrong doer, in 2 of the 3 never resolved cases, and then noticing repeatedly that (very sadly) non Church going believer and NON believers are far more honest, truthful, open and friendly to new comers, then one is shocked but deeply worried about the future of Jesus Christ’s True Organic Church.
HAVING RELOCATED 8 eventful years ago to the deep southwest from the state of Virginia (not the state with coal mines as Southwesterners believe) but the “Real Virginia”, the writer with great sorrow, now reports that over the last few years, God has reminded her repeatedly of the famous Virginian, the former United States President, Thomas Jefferson, who removed all of the Bible verses HE did not want to obey and created his own Jefferson Bible, which is up in Charlottesville Virginia on view.
ALSO, this same writer, who was raised in the “fear of the Lord” and who has totally yielded to every form of Bible true authority her entire saved whole life, was reared by a genuine organic Christ follower leader senior pastor father in an emotionally /spiritually safe, respectful loving servant senior pastor’s happy home.
AND in every day her (now departed) late father walked God’s green earth, not ONCE did this female gender writer, ever witness ANY racism, genderism or disrespect, name calling of any type or style of minister, leader or lay person, this apostolic visionary servant leader was raised sheltered enough to suppose that when one enters the “High Calling of God” (apostolic pioneering ministry) that ALL Senior Lamp Stand offices would be similarly wise, strong and respectful.
This imparted to her, a clear respect for all boundaries, for leaders, for senior pastors as well as for Mighty Real Leader Men.
YET, regretfully, long before moving the vast distance, the writer already had witnessed this was NOT going to be the fact 2-4 accuser spiritual doctrines had been put in certain in house places which allowed and enabled the Accuser of God’s own people to be tolerated and accepted.
YET IN ONLY 1-2 local instances of Friendly Fire (believer attacking true submitted, yielded to another’s real authority believer) while living in the former region, not a single time did it seem to be triggered by mysogyny, white bias against female leader. (and even when there were traces of Levitical Patriarchism, it was mostly kept in the apostolic closet)
RATHER it happened when they felt entitled to accuse someone with whom they had never deemed worthy of calling up to take their leader time to inquire of personally for being a supposed (apparently dreaded?) Church Hopper. Which in hindsight, from the view point of SW Pioneering Leadership, is frankly, “sweating the small stuff.”
At least the 1-2 had all the hall marks of trying to have the fear of the Lord, even in surely well intended but mixed up spiritual doctrine microcosm.
AND IN THE RAISED ON PERRY MASON SLEUTH PERCEIVER OBSERVATION STYLE,(**see below re The Famous Detective) the accuser comes, be it east, south, or deep south west, in the nearly the same charismatic tribe: Western European heritage, overly well fed naturally and supposedly spiritually, into spying dark devils , now even on fellow pure hearted Christian pastors, leaders, lay.
HOWEVER, AFTER working for many decades back on the east coast ( having helps, associate pastors, volunteers and visiting all about, including church to church cross denominational pastors/ministry leaders ongoing prayer for decades, without one gender, race bias, or haughty posturing, patronizing “little opposite gender” obvious (disrespectful/demeaning) distancing, it was very clear that there is something PRETTY ODD about the general regional spiritual grass roots generational Fruit.
AND AFTER I encountered one of my OCFC board members, who also moved here from Tyler, Texas, I found out that the board member, also has encountered the same thing, and has remarked sadly about chauvinism, over religiousity, lack of genuine organic non performing ministry leadership “Accepting Agape.” etc.
SO THE WRITER’S Inner Sleuth started to surface.WHAT is so extremely different in ministry here across this deep southwest famous region? Time after time, finding that when one is a serious pastor, area senior pioneering minister, that there is no seriousness about truly accepting, really loving others, (unless they are “our own tithe paying signed on member!” ) cross body self important vibe.
And when one is gender ministry stereotyped, repeatedly swindled, but the n reports both ministers to the oversight, one then is shocked with the oversight ducks and avoids and absolutely REFUSES to obey Bible confrontation in Matthew 18:15.
** RE PERRY MASON:
IT MUST BE ATTRIBUTED TO the writer’s being raised watching Perry Mason reruns as a young child, by my dear mother, that made this writer pay close watch to the faces, actions of others. One was able to watch nuances, subtle manipulations, ducking avoiding, ministry use of their own office to avoid, hide and even block being genuine, open and completely honest.
THUS, IN THE PERRY MASON legal form the writer would submit to the reader that the reason that while there are many mighty mega ministries in most every area, and religious folks 10 -12 deep at nearly every turn, there are multiplied many millions who are NOT going to church anywhere. And now, after the writers own anti female experience, for the sake of God’s high calling on this PERSON’s life, she avoids disrespect, big gender bias, (also known as Levitical Patriarchism and coming soon in ebook /mp3 form in a Bible study on line), superficial emotional and real dishonesty.
AND THIS BEING STATED, is the realistic reason that SHE now ministers online from the safety of the Elijah Prophetic Cave (I Kings 19:9). And now, when she encounters emotionally and spiritually pure hearted, fear of the Lord, TRUE ORGANIC natural, Loving TRUE Believers, which are rare as water in the parched dry desert, she notes where they are and fellowships one by one, or small group by small group.
AND for the many many others who are also hiding out inside THEIR own caves, God has told her to form the OCFC DFW Online Ministry Fellowship. (Watch over www.ocfcleader.tv on Sundays/also see archives)
DRAWING A CONCLUSION:
What is the common factor that can affect almost an entire region when it is acceptable to OMIT Unfavorable Important Entire Bible Passages?
The writer compared and contrasted what she had witnessed for 30 years, up and down the east coast, most of the time in the central Virginia entire senior pastor region and what God has revealed to here cross region for the last dry as desert love less sand immature deep southwest: the appartently new late president Thomas Jefferson Leader Bible of The Day.
This needs to be explained: Deist, Thomas Jefferson, made up his own Bible (The famous Thomas Jefferson Bible) by simply cutting out all of the Scripture passages that HE did not want to commit to. This was HIS choice.
But Thomas Jefferson was not a born again senior 5 fold office Lampstand Leader. He was a deist.
INTENTIONAL SUBMITTED SELAH:
Would/could Pastoral Omitted Unfavorable Bible Verses be a real root of “no holy fear of the Lord” basically throughout a region or even a nation?
Thus the writer submits the following Bible verses to any reader to check to see if the pastors, 5 fold office Lampstands willingly yield, will submit to each of the following:
1. THE AWESOME HOLY FEAR OF THE LORD
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the Lord is understanding.” Proverbs 9:10
Submitting this Selah: ZERO fear of the Lord implies WHAT? that the opposite fruit will be then produced?? What is the polar OPPOSITE fruit of “zero fear of the Lord?” ________ _______ _______fill in the blanks
Little real knowledge “of the Lord” can be due to no First Love Sabbath Break Time Apart for recreation, seeking just Him, and being around Him to develop a one to one set apart back and forth Enoch relationship??
ZERO depth of perception of the Holy One implies ZERO deep compassion, true deep leader understanding?)
2. ABSENCE OF GOD’S POWER AND MIGHT, COUNSEL: (aka 7 LampStand Spirits of God: POWERFUL HOLY SPIRIT ANOINTING:
It shall come to pass in that day
That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder,
And his yoke from your neck,
And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.
Is there the Isaiah 10:27 “burden breaking, yoke destroying leader big anointing?”
The writer has no time/space to relate the importance of reading Isaiah Chapter 1-12 important Bible context for this oft quoted verse. But the clue, God was standing, waiting to release the powerful leader full fledged anointing YET through the Hebrew Nation it was the head leadership who withstood, blocked God, by their compromised MIXTURE which had NO fear of the Lord, but rather spride, vanity: Key instances; Is 6:1 The prophet Isaiah has his own personal experiences with the awesome terror of the fear of the Lord; Is 11:2 7 Organic Lampstand Spirits of God, the Non Accusative prophesied Messiah in Is 11:2-3-5)
And in context, throughout the entire Bible, God calls the Leaders, High priests.”House of God” to repent first and primarily, to avoid national judgement.
3. NO SERIOUS SABBATH BREAK:
”Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.” Isaiah 56:7
Hasty, pressure, big driving, many duties: Zero Apart Quality /Quantity Time in the Sabbath Day Unto the Lord: See the blessing in Isaiah 56:7 for ALL who remove themself from work, ministry for time to BE with the Lord,
4. MEGA AREA REVELATION 2 CHURCH OF EPHESUS NO FIRST LOVE RELATIONSHIP LAMP STAND MAJOR FRUIT
“Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”
Lost First Love Leader Lampstand Mysogynous Tasteless Fruit: hurried, harried, overburdened, no time set apart in Sabbath Rest to love on, learn from, receive fresh original manna from the Lord.
Legalistic Over Worked Dry Revelation 2:1 Church of Ephesus then spawns, tolerates
5. DRY COMPASSION FATIGUED ELDERLY ACCUSER HIGH PRIESTHOOD:
I Samuel 1:9 When high priest Eli first spies grieving, sobbing Hannah, the future mother of the prophet Samuel on his temple steps, Eli first judges and accuses the weeping righteous woman Hannah, as he is experienced, getting old and was trying to catch a break sitting on the front steps, but was forced to rise up to see about “that little time wasting bothersome baggage laden woman.”
6. ENORMOUS RESPECTER OF PERSONS (Disrespecter of SOME Persons) Suspicious Spirit:
“Then Peter opened his mouth and said, “Of a truth, I perceive that God is no respecter of persons” Acts 10:34
1. Based on “outer court” ministry leader accuser stereotype/apostolic bias: race, gender, size, appearance. (observed not just by the writer’s own personal experience, but also from a black senior pastor, white non church goer, traveling white female leader)
The writer grants grace by suspecting the Suspecter, Respecter of Persons has come into play over time due to enormous mega millions who pass through the portals of many famous, wishing to be well known and viewing themselves as already famous, leaders’pioneering minds: as a need to categorize, make in house stereotypes to quickly set the new people in a group or part of the ministry. (?)
Yet those in very large charismatic churches must realize what a very unpleasant taste this leaves in the mind as a poor reflection on what was otherwise pure, lovely in the big Organization. Selah.
7. REFUSING TO YIELD TO EPHESIANS 2-5:21
The writer submits, that in charismatic circles, there is enormous pronounced emphatic teaching on “submission to authority” “being covered spiritually” “spiritual fathers” etc. but the experienced apostolic writer repeatedly observes that the model for Church apostolic interaction, without denomination and without ministry accusation is described by the apostle Paul in Ephesians 2-5:21. But that this is entire section of the New Testament is not being taught, much less being observed in much of the US primarily charismatic Churches.
SUMS IT UP BEST? Ephesians 5:21 “Mutual respect, mutual submission in the fear of the Lord ”
1. This scripture implies: Across the gender, senior leadership, racial big board?
2. This scripture mentions “in the fear of the Lord” which would imply that where there is NO or LITTLE true fear of the Lord, then there will be NO mutual respect,NO mutual submission and that then, every one will view themselves as needing to be OVER everybody else. (Selah)
8. REFUSING TO YIELD TO MATTHEW 18:15-17 BIBLE UP FRONT CONFRONTATION:
“ Moreover if thy brother (or Sister) shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.“
9. MINISTERS IN DENIAL OF JAMES 3:17
“By their fruits you will know them?”: Test the leadership ministry fruits by those who model James 3:17, “ But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
10. FAILING TO GIVE TRUE RESPECT, HONOR TO THE NATURAL REAL MOTHERS AND THE SENIOR MOTHERS IN THE SPIRIT
There appears to be a overall genuflecting to the Fathers but even a disrespect , big suspicion of senior leader mothers in the spirit. This reminds one of roots of Levi (Levtical patriarchism, low regard for real leader senior women, with possible mysogynous roots)
Use caution; “Honor your father AND your mother, so that it may go WELL with you” and “your days will be long upon the earth.“
11. ACCUSER LEADERSHIP EMOTIONAL DISHONESTY:
Enabling the Accuser but Refusing to Up Front Confront the Leader:
Emotional Dishonesty: Preferring to talk to many others about him/her but never once giving that leader a chance to speak directly, either by clandestine avoidance or manipulation, using ministry bureaucracy to put up a power block.
Once more, the writer can attribute at least some of this Emotional Dishonesty, avoiding, to the Rev 2:1 super busy, always working Me Centered, Lost First Love primarily charismatic turf protecting Church. BUT it reveals WHY the Lord purposely rebuked that over achieving, yet imperceptive, ungenuine, lacking in human compassion/ Christlike empathy, Me Centered, About OUR Own Convenience, self-righteous Lampstand.
12. CONVENIENT AVOIDANCE, MANIPULATION OF UNPLEASANT BIBLE SCRIPTURE
For a list of commonly avoided, neglected /conveniently left out Bible Scriptures, please note the list above, also. And besides the area genuine lack of accepting, heart of Christ like caring/empathy, this has been the worst over all leadership/ministry fellowship repeated discovery!
Other “Conveniently /Selectively Omitted Favorites”:
1. I Peter 4:17 “Let judgement begin in the house of God”
2. 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, who are called by My name, shall humble themself and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and heal their land.”
3. Deep inablility to accurately differientiate between
1) “unrighteous accusation” and “holy fear of the Lord up front Bible Confrontation as in Matth 18:15
2) Any leader attempt to any other leader II Timothy 3:16-17 “reprove, correct , to straight forward Bible leader /Matt 18:15 ministry confront” VS “being mean spirited, accusative, unloving, willful, divisive and pridefully contentious.”
3. Taking gossip, accusation too lightly, as they are too busy to check it out for themselves, but find it more convenient to accept the leader wicked accusation. This is Me Centered convenient, all about OURSELVES modern day immature Lampstand Loveless Rev 2 Lost First Love SELF PRESERVING, deeply intrenched, basic minister leader style. And this permeates charismatic USA grass roots primarily Caucasian ministry.
WRITERS SUBMITTED CONCLUSION:
The main root of most of ALL the of the listed above might simply stems from lack of time apart in Sabbath periods of NON self accusing, but self examining, Rev 2 FIRST LOVE TIMES alone before the Father’s Throne. AND the dire real need for cultivating the Acts Ananias, Saphira “HOLY AWESOME LEADER FEAR OF THE LORD!” *PS How much would useless vain fantasy, media broadcast fame(real or potential) perhaps “we’re a legend (to use license in our own self made ministry unrealistic) leadership minds, also perhaps play a part?
Surely, the loving, genuine, non accusative well intentioned, non legalistic writer fondly reminds any Unrealistic Leader: “Faithful are the wounds of a friend.” And “iron sharpens iron.”
Submitted as Selah, intended as though provoking salt, but in an “only if the shoe fits, then should you wear it” yielded submitted fashion.Will just leave it as the responsibility of the reader to pray for clear discernment, and to “pick out what is HAY and cast out all that is STUBBLE.”
Submitted, according to 2 Timothy 3, there will be a “falling away” due to the following reasons:
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For 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,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away. “
HOWEVER, we each need to read that verse in the context of ourself, our own church leadership and humbly inquire of the Lord, “Lord, when YOU had them pen that passage, were YOU actually thinking of US?”
LET US NOTE that the Bible passage commands “From such turn away.” Which the writer has, and now submits to each reader:
IS there a modern US Church FALLING AWAY?
OR is it rather a RUNNING AWAY due to the 2 Timothy 3:5 Bible command?
For 2-4 years the Lord has been giving me the big concern for His 5 fold offices. A few of them are on the older and later video OCFC Leader Words on http://www.ocfcleader.tv (livestream has some down way deep). For the most sobering: Old with ads, former Livestream 9/22/12http://www.livestream.com/drtaveaudarcyleadershipministries/video?clipId=pla_49925d41-400e-450f-9ca6-2fad25b7e44b
The most sober one is similar to the word I got just before the end of 2012 for sr. pastors, 5 fold pioneering offices: Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin and “They need to choose WHOM they will serve.“
And God has had this writer in a serious time of intense self introspection. FYI: Everything I ever write or say: God also puts first tests me, repeatedly me through.
RIGHT NOW is the appointed Time for leader self judging, (not meaning self accusation, self flaggellation but allowing God to seriously self examine..)
The TAVEAU D’ARCY LEADERSHIP WORD FOR 2013 is “God is cleaning out the barns to get them ready to send MANY NEW SHEEP.” (and we can welcome the sheep, but if they do not feel respected, but misjudged, ill treated, normal,emotionally healthy, pure, humble living sheep will not remain long.)
God’s blessing and mighty peace be upon you.
