It’s customary for a person to introduce themselves, especially beginning any new endeavor. I hope by now some of you discovered who I AM. For those questioning I AM a bond-servant to Our Lord’s Lord. A friend of God’s. A son, a brother, a father, the deliverer of His Word.
I could share the many close calls or the many times I nearly found death. I could write of all the pain and suffering I’ve endured or about all the great obstacles I’ve been met with over the years. I could tell you how challenging the world is and give account of the adversity we’ve overcome, or I could get to the part where I dimply thank our Father God in heaven for Jesus and for the life I have now.
It’s all gift I hope you know.
What is it about this world that makes us want to change it? Is it the idea of leaving our mark on it or perhaps the notion of giving humanity a new direction? I often wondered how the world would be if we decided as a whole to remake it better? With this in mind I ask – where would you begin?
For me I’ll start at the beginning . . .
I find life rather amazing; amazed at how every step led to this wonderful blessing. How the experiences of my past contributed to life’s greater understanding. Amazed at how each moment whether it be what some might say not good or downright difficult to admit of having done wrong by God. Every moment that I experienced allowed for me to grow into the person I AM. (like it or not) For better or worse.
If you don’t know yet I’ve overcome so much adversity, endured so much pain, faced my fears and rose above it all. My journey literally started eons ago, back in the beginning – but after I first accepted the job in 2011, (seems like a whole other world ago now) for me anyway. I knew then the task to deliver this great message would be difficult. I was told (by the opposition) I would spend a lot of time in jail.
Funny how this world works. Looking back on history – every person who’s ever brought anything to life from God has always been persecuted. (The Irony) I remember every prophet before me. I’m reminded of Jesus’ sacrifice too, so grateful God loves us. So sorry though for the world and those of it.
I tell you I’ve witnessed the end of the first civilization with Our Father God on one side of me and Jesus Christ on the other. As astonishing as it may seem it’s not the most incredible thing I’ve seen. I’ve recall endings and beginnings of realms so far beyond this creation.
God truly blessed my life. He saved it. First, He abased me and then taught me to abound with Him.
I remember the darkness too.
Through the years I found The One constant is love. God truly loves like no other. Unwavering in His Way it’s quite impressive, especially as I look upon the world now. So many in need of a good word, so many scared of everything. So many doubtful and timid – It’s tragic to witness mankind fall so far.
I remember making my way back He welcomed me with open arms. I AM The Prodigal Son. Jesus’ brother. It’s because of Jesus I was able to get back to Our Father’s presence. Right now, people struggle with understanding salvation, grace, even redemption – it’s why I’m here. God sent me to bring greater spiritual awareness to the world.
The world kicks and screams, it fights wanting to keep its ways. It wants what it wants when it wants for the reasons it wants. (usually selfish) There’s a lot of self-centered desire out there, the sort of stuff that’s making the world harder for the faithful. The troubled youth, the misguided, the lost and corrupt.
It was a wonderful feeling learning to stand again. I’d been down for so long. I’d gone out into the world and fallen years before. Seems it was part of this great plan for life. God sent me out to the world–make it a better place He said, only I got lost and was misled into suffering myself. (or so it seemed)
I recall the calling. Jesus tried for so long to get through to me. I couldn’t hear it for years I was running away from something or other. Those from my past know the difficulty I endured. It was a life and death struggle for real with more on the line you than you can imagine. Thankfully God never gave up on me.
I remember it was music I reconnected with, then later literature, the innuendos and synchronicities all helped me grasp God’s message. He was calling, preparing me for what was to come. He was trying to get my attention at first which led to where I was always destined to be. You could also say I found my destiny on the road I took to avoid it. (God has a way of moving us to where we need to be) Even if we try to avoid it.
As our relationship grew I grew stronger in spirit, testing my abilities, first stepping out of body then into differing realms. One of the first times I went OBE I thought I died and was a ghost. Father God wrote a song about the experience (See- Coldplay 42). It was right around the time I began visiting His Crystal Palace.
The place where creation originates is magical. The rivers of The Waters of Life glisten and flow through every room. I often think of being shown around by Father God and Jesus. Where we last stood outside The Palace gazing onto a fountain. (the place where I officially accepted the position) I remember Father God asked my opinion of The Bible that day.
So back to the falling into the world part; I remember the troubles, the long sleepless nights, the running in circles going nowhere cycle, it seemed never ending. I remember begging for a different life. It’s hard when you think you’re alone and can’t seem to figure out you’ve lost sight of life.
Seems the world and those of it suffer needlessly this way everywhere.
Back on earth, when He offered the job He said, “There’s the door but you’re the one who has to walk thru it.” He told me of the things that would happen should I say yes. He told me the future. He shared how life would one day be. Our talk lasted four hours as I repeatedly said no. (can’t imagine what I was thinking) Father God gave me the pep talk of all pep talks and gave me the confidence in Him to finally say yes.

Starting out . . .
I must’ve fallen seven times afterwards. The world is the world. It has a way about itself. He told me If I didn’t want to fall anymore to grab hold of Him and not let go. That’s when we first started, the lessons leading up to the accepting of the job culminated with one very important one.
For those who don’t know God this probably doesn’t seem like such a big deal. The ones who’ve lost sight of Him don’t realize what they’re giving up. Having been shown afterlife and the heavens and having lived a life of sin but then finding repentance, (life and death) it finally made sense the day Father God explained the reasoning. For years He let me make it. He was hopeful and didn’t give up even after the world had. He was determined to save me. I remember the lesson as clear as anything. Having been with Him for a long as I have I can’t imagine any other way.
The worldly ones – the ones who’ve fallen, they think they can get by so long as they believe God is real. But, really there’s more to it than that. There’s the actual living upright in love part and living faithfully sacrificing daily part. There’s the keeping God first part and the most important parts of all – the dying to ourselves part. (the hardest part of all) It’s not easy overcoming the world but I assure you it’s possible.
When Father God convicted me of sin I realized what I had put my family through. As hard as it was to sacrifice it was harder to accept, I killed Jesus. I remember crying for a day straight. I left sobbing having never felt as low. I stewed in that pain for twenty-four hours before sitting down with Father God again.
When I finally grasped the lesson He said, “You are forgiven My Son” and I looked at Him and Jesus was at His side. They smiled and said okay let’s rejoice. It was that moment when life made sense. God saved me. Father God forgave me and welcomed me back – thanks to Jesus. That was the renewed beginning.
I share this because there are many who don’t understand the reason for having faith and belief. There are many trying to own sin making excuses as to why they won’t repent and be forgiven. (I tell you Jesus did not die in vain) Nor is a belief enough if one’s unwilling to live in harmony with God. There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
Father God, along with Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit are The One’s bringing this message to life. I’m hopeful you’ll understand. I pray your blessings are multiplied, that this message finds you well. I pray you have faith and practice living in “The Way” we’re all meant to. Don’t forget – God loves you. He’s hoping you’ll put Him first. All things fall into place as you do and if you’ll just have faith and believe, you can do absolutely anything.
