Jesus IS God. :O)

GREETINGS BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE ~

    I felt like The LORD wanted us to put up a Blog that includes several scriptures from God's Holy Word - The Bible, that were written before and after God came to earth as His only Son YESHUA. This isn't to beat anyone over the head with The Bible or  "so called religion…" This is to feed those seeking God, or a Higher Power, with elements of Truth that reveal JESUS as THE LIVING GOD. Taste and see that THE LORD IS GOOD!!!!! HE ISN'T HERE TO HURT YOU. HE DIDN'T DESTROY YOUR FAMILY OR WOUND YOUR HEART… He didn't destroy your friend's family or wound his or her heart… GOD IS THE GOD OF LOVE. There is LIGHT and there is DARKNESS. There is TRUTH and there are LIES. THERE IS A DEVIL WHO IS SATAN & HATE. And THERE IS GOD WHO IS CHRIST JESUS AND LOVE that binds us together in Perfect HARMONY (1 John 4:16-19, 1 John 4:4, 1 Corinthians 13:8, Colossians 3:14). 

The devil comes ONLY to kill, steal and destroy. GOD CAME SO THAT WE HAVE LIFE and LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY (John 10:10).

GOD BLESS YOU as you read these WORDs of LOVE AND SHALOM. God has a Religion and that Religion is TO LOVE. 

PURE AND UNDEFILED RELIGION BEFORE GOD AND THE FATHER is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. ~ James 1:27 




JESUS answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: 
Hear, O Israel, THE LORD our GOD, THE LORD IS ONE.  
AND 
you shall love The LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment.
 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
 So the scribe said to Him, “Well said, Teacher. YOU HAVE SPOKEN THE TRUTH, for THERE IS ONE GOD, and THERE IS NO OTHER BUT HE. And TO LOVE HIM with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and TO LOVE ONE'S NEIGHBOR AS ONESELF, IS MORE THAN ALL THE WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND SACRIFICES.” ~ Mark 12:29-33

     In the beginning was THE WORD, and THE WORD was WITH GOD and THE WORD WAS GOD. He was IN THE BEGINNING WITH GOD. ALL things WERE MADE THROUGH HIM, and without Him nothing was made that was made. IN HIM was LIFE, and The LIFE WAS THE LIGHT OF MEN. And THE LIGHT SHINES IN THE DARKNESS, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

     There was a man sent from God, whose name was John (John the Baptist is Jesus' cousin! :O) ). This man came for a witness, to bear witness of The Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of THAT LIGHT. That was THE TRUE LIGHT WHICH GIVES LIGHT TO EVERY MAN coming into the world.

    He was in the world, and THE WORLD WAS MADE THROUGH HIM, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM, to them He gave the right to become CHILDREN OF GOD, to those who BELIEVE IN HIS NAME: who were BORN, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but OF GOD. <3
     And THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US, and we beheld His GLORY, the GLORY as of THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER, FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH.
   John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”
  And of His fullness we have all received, and GRACE FOR GRACE. 
 For THE LAW WAS GIVEN THROUGH MOSES, BUT GRACE AND TRUTH CAME THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. No one has seen God at any time. THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, who is IN THE BOSOM OF THE FATHER, He HAS DECLARED HIM. ~John 1:1-18

   For there are three that bear witness in Heaven: The FATHER, The WORD, and The  HOLY SPIRIT; 
and THESE THREE
ARE ONE.  ~ 1 John 5:7

  And GOD SAID to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 
‘I AM has sent me to you.’” ~ Exodus 3:14

JESUS SAID to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, 
I AM. ~ John 8:58

    Therefore THE LORD HIMSELF will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call HIS NAME IMMANUEL. ~ Isaiah 7:14
                 IMMANUEL MEANS GOD WITH US!!!!!!!! :O)

    For UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN, unto us A SON IS GIVEN; and THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE UPON HIS SHOULDER. And HIS NAME WILL BE CALLED 

WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR (Holy Spirit - Jn 14:27, 1 Jn 2:27)

MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, 

            PRINCE OF PEACE. ~ Isaiah 9:6  

    JESUS IS THE SAR SHALOM!!!!!!!! 
                                                   That's Hebrew for Prince of PEACE!!!!! :O)


     HE has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into THE KINGDOM of THE SON (YESHUA!!!!! :O) ) of HIS LOVE, IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION through His blood, the FORGIVNENESS of sins.
     HE IS THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD, THE FIRSTBORN OVER ALL CREATION.  For BY HIM ALL THINGS WERE CREATED that are IN HEAVEN AND that are ON EARTH, VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. 
     ALL THINGS WERE CREATED THROUGH HIM AND FOR HIM. 
    And HE IS BEFORE ALL THINGS, and IN HIM ALL THINGS CONSIST.  And HE IS The Head of The Body, THE CHURCH (Eph 1:22-23), Who is THE BEGINNING, The Firstborn from the dead, that IN ALL THINGS HE MAY HAVE THE PREEMINENCE. 
     For IT PLEASED THE FATHER THAT IN HIM ALL THE FULLNESS SHALL DWELL, AND BY HIM TO RECONCILE ALL THINGS TO HIMSELF, BY HIM, whether things on earth or things in heaven, HAVING MADE PEACE THROUGH the blood of HIS CROSS (Is 53:4-5, 1 Pt 2:24, Ps 103:1-5, Ps 22). ~ Colossians 1:13-20

    "MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, and I know them, and THEY FOLLOW ME.  And I give them Eternal LIFE, and they shall never perish; NEITHER SHALL ANYONE SNATCH THEM OUT OF MY HAND. My Father, Who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and NO ONE IS ABLE TO SNATCH THEM OUT OF MY FATHER'S HAND. I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE.” ~ John 10:27-30

Philip said to Him, “LORD, SHOW US THE FATHER, and it is sufficient for us.”
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? 
HE WHO HAS SEEN ME HAS SEEN THE FATHER; 
so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I AM IN THE FATHER, AND THE FATHER IN ME? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. Believe Me that I AM IN THE FATHER AND THE FATHER IN ME, or else BELIEVE Me for the sake OF THE WORKS themselves." ~ John 14:8-11
     
     GOD, Who at various times and in various ways SPOKE in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has IN THESE LAST DAYS SPOKEN TO US BY HIS SON, Whom He has appointed HEIR OF ALL things, through Whom also He made the worlds; WHO BEING THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS GLORY and THE EXPRESS IMAGE OF HIS PERSON, and UPHOLDING ALL things BY THE WORD OF HIS POWER, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the Right Hand of The Majesty on High, HAVING BECOME SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE ANGELS, as HE HAS by inheritance OBTAINED A MORE EXCELLENT NAME than they. ~ Hebrews 1:1-4
        JESUS!!!!!!!! :O)
HIS NAME IS THE WORD OF GOD. ~ Revelation 19:13


     And it shall come to pass that WHOEVER CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED~ Acts 2:21


    There are many websites with references to various scriptures that speak JESUS IS GOD.  Of course you can open The BIBLE to seek The LORD, to see that Jesus is God and that HE IS TRULY GOOD. 
     
     As you draw near to God, HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU (James 4:7-8). As you submit to God, the devil submits to THE LIGHT OF CHRIST IN YOU. 

     You will see your life change for THE BETTER as you continue to SEEK YESHUA. Don't look at Yeshua for the lies and deceit you've experienced from people, but look at Yeshua for THE TRUTH that HE IS. THE LOVE that HE IS. THE SHALOM that HE IS. THE GOD that HE IS. 


THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU 
and ALL of your dear ones;

THE LORD MAKE His Face 
SHIIIIIIIINE UPON YOU,
AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU;
THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE 
UPON YOU, 


AND GIVE YOU PEACE."
~ Numbers 6:24-26 <3 <3 <3

Halfway to Homeless (once but no longer)

Psalm 107

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
    His faithful love endures forever.
Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out!
    Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies.
For he has gathered the exiles from many lands,
    from east and west,
    from north and south.
Some wandered in the wilderness,
    lost and homeless.
Hungry and thirsty,
    they nearly died.
Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble,
    and he rescued them from their distress.
He led them straight to safety,
    to a city where they could live.
Let them praise the Lord for his great love
    and for the wonderful things he has done for them.
For he satisfies the thirsty
    and fills the hungry with good things.



Yep, that's my story.  I strayed from THE LORD for a while.  Upset at people and myself, living in depression.  Depression is a very dark place to be, and believe me when I say I understand it.  Halfway to Homeless is a place I was at Spiritually, and I was probably way past halfway down to the bottom of that pit, near where the coals ain't quenched.  I was upset about going through divorce, losing friends I thought were loyal, then feeling GOD made me to be a musician/songwriter and having doors closed one after another after being right on the verge of success time and time again with major industry names, and on top of it all I was a hypocrite and didn't even realize it.  I drank so much and smoked so much and tripped so much that I was intoxicated for years straight.  One time after I flew to Arkansas and back to Los Angeles, one of my friends saw me at my home in California right after I'd returned home after the flight.  She told me something like, "Huh, this is the first time I've ever seen you sober since I've known you."  (I was out of stuff to use on the plane).  I hated myself even getting wasted to escape the reality of pain, and asked GOD to take me over and over.  I knew I had a problem and thought that I might never find THE WAY out.  This is what it means to be "Halfway to Homeless", referring to if you're still breathing you got a change at redemption.
But now I've been redeemed.  The LORD has saved me and I can honestly say once an addict, not always an addict.  I don't ever even have the desire to ever be high or drunk again except on the HOLY GHOST… and let me tell you, there surely ain't no high like THE MOST HIGH.  HIS COUNSEL AND REDEEMING LOVE set me free from serving mammon.  Mammon doesn't mean cash, it means want.  I don't want.  THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD AND I shall not want! (Ps. 23).  I know what it's like to serve want.  Today I have a great confidence for all men to be saved and come to the Knowledge of CHIRST (which is GOD'S WILL - 1 Tim. 2:3-4)  I think more and more people are always going to come to CHRIST these days, because I understand that they can try everything from dope, to world religions, to lusts, to whatever, and no matter what they try nor how much of it they get, they will never continually walk around with a smile in their heart that doesn't fade, unless they have JESUS - THE KING OF THE Jews.  My GOD IS CHRIST  (1 John 5:7, Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, Hebrews 1, John 1:1-14).  HE HAS SET me free from the law of sin and death (and any other bad thing you can imagine) and given me LIFE and LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY.
My HOPE is that people will listen to the song "Halfway to Homeless" these days and relate to the fact that I went through such depression once, but that CHRIST JESUS took that depression so far from me that I will never experience it ever again.  "Halfway to Homeless" is the way I was before I was reborn (John 3).  See me today and judge rightly knowing my spirit and soul within are a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17).  GOD has truly given me JOY that so GOOD, my words cannot logically fully explain to any man/woman of the flesh.  Taste and see that THE LORD IS GOOD.

Psalm 34:8-11

New King James Version (NKJV)
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints!
There is no want to those who fear Him.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger;
But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.
11 Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.


Every religion in the world but GOD'S (James 1:27) will lead you to steps you must do to achieve righteousness and peace.  But you will only find yourself Halfway to Homeless eventually.  GOD'S RELIGION achieves PEACE, SUCCESS & RIGHTEOUSNESS for you.  GOD GIVES LIFE, RIGHTEOUSNESS AND PEACE to all who call upon the name of THE LORD and it is not by works you do so that you can boast, but it is THE FREE GIFT OF GOD.  Just Believe in GOD (1 John 5:7, Isaiah 9:6) and be made Whole.

Here are the lyrics to "Halfway to Homeless".  If you've experienced what I have you can relate.  If you are still experiencing this, know that GOD CAN CHANGE it all.  For all things are possible for him who believes (Mark 9:23).  Have FAITH in GOD to do things, do not put your faith in your own ability.  Your own ability will result in failure and depression.  GOD IS PERFECT AND IS THE FATHER you always needed and wished you had.  HE WILL GRANT you peace.  Put Faith in GOD and in nothing else.

Work all day into the night
Then my boss withholds my overtime
Buy some cold brew then I'm headed home
Where I pray to have some time of my own
Unwanted memories won't leave my head
Sad to say, I live to get by and drink to forget
Now I'm not sure where to go from here
For I've never known harder years

Mother said things could always be worse
But I just cannot be as strong as her
So now I'm listenin' to John Hiatt sing a slow blues song
And there's one last beer but it's halfway gone

Had some time to relax, then the telephone rings
Probably another collection agency
Or the ol' flame calling for child support
So I keep workin' my fingers to the bone
Credit cards charged to the max
Uncle sam caught me cheatin' on income tax
Now I owe so much money it's hard to survive
The American way ain't as free as I'd like

Mother said things could always be worse
She said sometimes you have to turn and face your hurt
Put your faith in LOVE and you'll find your feet on stable ground
And you'll never fall further than halfway down
LOVE won't let you fall further than halfway down
Oh we'll never fall further than halfway down

I'm only halfway, only halfway
LORD I'm only halfway, only halfway down
I may stumble but I'll never hit that ground
Only halfway, only halfway
Well I'm only halfway, only halfway down

Even while going through that, GOD kept me optimistic to know that HE would come and take me to higher ground and get out of that rut.  I just had to submit to GOD and truly call on HIM as my SAVIOR.

Here I AM! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears MY VOICE and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with ME. ~ Revelation 3:20 NIV

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. ~ Jeremiah 29:11

GOD LOVES YOU!!!

SOZO'd BY LOVE

~ GREETINGS BELOVED AND BEAUTIFUL ~ 

  I pray The LORD types through me exactly as HE WILLS. Father, let it not be anything of MY OWN thinking and will but I pray this message will be ALL OF WHAT YOUR MIND longs to share and give of YOUR LOVE to others. You love everyone with the same Love, showing NO PARTIALITY(Romans 2:11) and I just THANK YOU for YOUR PERFECT LOVE that CASTS OUT FEAR and JOINS US TOGETHER IN PERFECT HARMONY.

PRAISE YOU JESUS and THANK YOU LORD for ALL that YOU DO.

IN YESHUA'S MIGHTY NAME. AMEN.

______________________________________________________________

My son, GIVE ATTENTION TO MY WORDs;
Incline your ear to My Sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For THEY ARE LIFE to those who find them,
and HEALTH TO ALL their flesh. ~ Proverbs 4:20-22


   3 nights ago our little man 2 year old was feeling a little warmer than usual. He does usually cruise around daily with a natural, built in heater, but his body felt a little warmer than usual. He moved around a lot through the night. I felt his skin several times and he was warm, but Bryson and I knew, from several previous experiences, that we just needed to TRUST and believe in God's Good News and WORD of LIFE/Medicine(Proverbs 4:20-22, 3:5-8 & 17:22) that say BY HIS STRIPES YOU ARE HEALED. God spoke these WORDs through the prophet Isaiah over 700 years before CHRIST even came to earth.


  We continued to speak The WORDs of LIFE over Jedidiah. The WORD OF GOD is a SWord(Hebrews 4:12) meant to be swung at the devil and all his LIES of FEAR, WORRY and DESTRUCTION. For The WORD of GOD IS ALIVE and POWERful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. ~ Hebrews 4:12


Therefore, put on EVERY PIECE OF GOD'S ARMOR so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.  Stand your ground, putting on The Belt of TRUTH and The Body Armor of God’s Righteousness (clothed with CHRIST-Colossians 3:12-14). 
For shoes, PUT ON The PEACE THAT COMES FROM THE GOOD NEWS so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up The Shield of FAITH TO STOP THE FIERY ARROWS OF THE DEVIL. PUT ON SALVATION (YESHUA - JESUS - means SALVATION, The Head of The Church - Ephesians 1:22-23) as your Helmet, and TAKE THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD. - THIS IS KEY AND HAS HELPED US SOOOOO MUCH IN TRYING TIMES!!!!!  

As well as


Pray in the Spirit AT ALL TIMES and ON EVERY OCCASION. Stay alert and BE PERSISTENT IN YOUR PRAYERS for all believers everywhere. ~ Ephesians 6:13-18 

  IT IS WRITTEN that GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT OF FEAR (2 Timothy 1:7)!!!!! GOD HAS GIVEN US HIS HOLY SPIRIT OF LOVE, AND OF POWER and A SOUND MIND.  


   And if we stay fixed on that, meditating on HIS TRUTH and LOVE the devil is made SILENT UNDER OUR FEET (Romans 16:20, Malachi 4:2-3, Ezekiel 28:18).

GREATER IS HE (GOD OF LOVE & PEACE) than he (the devil hater and chaos) of this world. ~ 1 John 4:4

GREAT is THE PEACE OF OUR CHILDREN (Isaiah 54:13)!!!!!!!!

JESUS SAYS "NOTHING BY ANY MEANS SHALL HARM YOU."

God is NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION. God is THE GOD OF LOVE, Who IS LOVE. The LORD has helped us to remember this daily. 

 The thief who is THE DEVIL COMES ONLY TO KILL, STEAL AND DESTROY. 

GOD CAME TO GIVE US LIFE 

and Life MOOOOOOOORE ABUNDANTLY. ~ John 10:10, Galatians 5:1

   GOD BLESS YOU for reading this far… There are SO MANY MORE WORDs of LOVE written IN GOD'S WORD ~ THE BIBLE that have helped us DAILY since GOD TOOK A TUMOR OUT OF BRYSON'S HEAD and we got ReBorn in April 2010. Eventually, we will have a Testimony of our Pilgrimage thus far, including more about our experiences in the SUPERNATURAL. Even though we are really only about four years old, since our ReBirth and Renewal of our FAITH IN CHRIST in April 2010, The LORD continues to show us SO MUCH, delivering us DAILY BY HIS PERFECT LOVE AND TRUTH, humbling us and helping us to PERSIST, TRUST AND OBEY. 

______________________________________________________________


   When we awoke yesterday Jedi felt a little better, as far as his body temperature goes. We had to get up to meet a special friend, Brother & Family IN CHRIST who Bryson hadn't seen in A LONG TIME and I hadn't met yet… We knew The LORD had ordained this SPECIAL and IMPORTANT TIME to fellowship with our friend. Bryson really felt that the devil DID NOT want us to go and was working overtime to try and stop this meeting from happening. 

   Well, THE DEVIL FAILS. ALWAYS. 


HATE         ALWAYS       FAILS.

LOVE, Love will NEVER FAIL. 

   We let Jedi sleep in as long as possible and blessedly he woke up on his own… well, The LORD woke him up in due time. We got ready and headed out to meet our friend. 


   Jedi did GREAT. God kept him HAPPY and he sat with us pretty much THE WHOLE TIME while we sat, had coffee and talked with our Brother.


Jan. 15, 2014 - Jedidiah before nap time, right after we got back from meeting with our friend 

  After our fellowship time we headed straight home to have a snack and let our little buddy take a snoozer. He slept pretty well, but when he woke up, his body temperature felt up again and I felt like The LORD just wanted Jedi to REST REST REST and chillax around the house. 


  Jedi mostly just wanted to sit and watch a few of his fave tv programs. Bryson and I anointed him with anointing oil - made with essential lavender oil, essential peppermint and almond oil, prayed over IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON/SUN(Malachi 4:2) AND THE HOLY SPIRIT. Bryson went to go work in the studio on our album while trusting that Jedidiah has ALREADY BEEN HEALED BY JESUS' STRIPES. 
Bryson knows A LOT about this WORD OF LIFE AND BLESSING since it was only about four years again we were standing together ON GOD'S FAITHful PROMISES and believing that BY HIS STRIPES Bryson was HEALED (1 Peter 2:24, Isaiah 53:4-5, Psalm 103:1-5).  Although Bryson felt QUITE THE OPPOSITE, we continued to claim and speak LIFE over Bryson and eventually, Bryson commanded that the devil NOT EVEN TALK TO US ANYMORE. Immediately Bryson felt the clutch that had been on his brain, clamping tighter and tighter LEAVE HIS BRAIN. You can read more about DR. GOD taking the tumor OUT of Bryson's head here: Knocking on Death's Door 

   While Daddy Bryson was in the studio, Jedi and I chillaxed (chill + relax). After a couple hours of praying, speaking God's WORD and putting The LORD's Anointing oil on Jedi, his body temperature felt much better and all of a sudden he popped up out of the chair we were sitting in and started moving around like Jedi's HAPPY "JOY BOY" smiling self. =D


   It was such a good feeling of relief to see him dancing around, playing with his play-doh (one of his new fave toys) and wanting to put his trains together and build and bridge/tunnel out of legos for his wheel toys (tractor, trains, cars, etc) to go through.
 

THANK YOU JESUS.

    We took Communion before hopping into bed, we do every night, because we feel like The LORD spoke clearly to us on THE IMPORTANCE of doing Communion as a family and OFTEN. Along with feasting on GOD'S WORD, Communion is our daily medicine, which essentially Communion is also feasting on God's WORD because CHRIST IS THE WORD (John 1:1-5 & 9-14). I don't feel the need to go into details about Communion right now. Perhaps The LORD will write a Blog through us one day on Communion ~ Eating The Bread of LIFE/flesh of JESUS and drinking The Blood of YESHUA - He is The LIVING 
Water and Drink of Life. If this is something you have questions about, SEEK THE LORD, delve INTO HIS WORD and HE WILL MAKE HIMSELF KNOWN TO YOU. In times past, when Bryson and I weren't FEELING IN OUR FLESH 100%, we took GOD'S COMMUNION/Medicine and IMMEDIATELY FELT BETTER. This is a SUPERNATURAL EXPERIENCE that all believers in YESHUA can have.  = )

   Also, I know The LORD had me write the Scripture in Ephesians 6:12-18 earlier which talks about putting on The ARMOR OF GOD to WALK IN LOVE and EXTINGUISH ALL the fiery arrows of the devil… I feel as though God would like me to mention that the last part of THE ARMOR OF LOVE is to
 PRAY IN THE SPIRIT AT ALL TIMES AND ON EVERY OCCASION (Ephesians 6:18). 


  
  Bryson and I have realized that the only way we can pray as much as possible throughout the day is for us to pray in The Spirit as OFTEN as we remember to do so. This is The Supernatural Language, called Speaking in Tongues, is referred in GOD'S WORD, which IS The Bible, several times. This is ANOTHER AREA that I don't feel like The LORD wants us to write about at this point in time, but just like Communion and any other area you might have questions about, IF YOU CONTINUE TO SEEK THE LORD YESHUA, reading His WORD/The Bible and communicate with God, HE WILL MAKE THIS KNOWN TO YOU (Philippians 3:15). Don't worry or give up (Philippians 4:4-9). And if you are a believer and haven't received this gift yet, CONTINUE TO ASK AND BELIEVE that God will give it to you! GOD SHOWS NO PARTIALITY (Romans 2:11). This is a gift that ALL BELIEVERS CAN HAVE. The Apostle Paul said that he desires that all would speak in tongues (1 Corinthians 14:5). Speaking in tongues is VERY SPECIAL AND IMPORTANT. Bryson and I know this because BEFORE we got ReBorn, we had no clue about talking in tongues and would have thought it was REALLY WEIRD. But when we were faced with The LIFE OR DEATH Experience, believing for God to take the tumor out of Bryson's head, GOD ASKED BRYSON TO START SPEAKING IN TONGUES.  That is another story and well, if you are faced with DEATH and God asks you to do something, YOU BETTER DO IT!!!!! I'm THANKFUL that Bryson did, because I really felt like being Bryson's one-flesh and sister IN CHRIST that IF GOD ASKED HIM TO DO SOMETHING LIKE SPEAK IN TONGUES, THEN I SHOULD TOO!!!  I THANK GOD that I did, even though growing up I didn't know ANYTHING about speaking in Tongues. OUR WHOLE LIFE CHANGED after we obeyed God's Voice and started speaking The Supernatural Prayer Language to God. 

   IN FACT, WITHIN 24 HOURS of us speaking in Tongues for the first time, GOD TOOK THE TUMOR OUT OF BRYSON'S HEAD, RE-BIRTHED AND FOREVER FREED US FROM ALL DARKNESS.


  It's REALLY NEAT because Speaking in Tongues edifies one's spirit(1 Corinthians 14:4) and is a language only between YOU AND GOD. No one else can understand this SPECIAL LANGUAGE and I believe the devil can't either!!!!! For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men BUT TO GOD; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit. ~ 1 Corinthians 14:2  


  Having said all of that about Speaking in The Supernatural Prayer Language which you can find out A LOT MORE from spending time with God's WORD, through all of this experience with Jedidiah the last couple days, as well as through the MANY personal healings we have experienced, ONLY BY THE POWER OF JESUS ~ God's Holy Spirit of LOVE DWELLING WITHIN US, we continued to speak in Tongues, believing that BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED (Isaiah 53:4-5, 1 Peter 2:24, Psalm 103:1-5)I know I've mentioned this healing verse SO MANY TIMES, but it is SO VERY IMPORTANT AND CRUCIAL TO MEDITATE 
ON daily, keeping It deep down, engraved on the tablet of the heart. 

  Through the night, Jedi was still warm but WE KNOW that GOD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHOULD LIE (Numbers 23:19) and that HIS WORD and PROMISES ARE PERFECT (Psalm 12:6). The LORD anointed Jedi with oil one more time before bed and then through the night we just continued to stand on THE FOUNDATION OF LOVE THAT NEVER FAILS ~ YESHUA HAMASHIACH (Hebrew for JESUS The Messiah). 


  In the morning, when I reached over to touch Jedi's skin, he felt COMPLETELY NORMAL… OH THANK YOU JESUS!!!!!!!! Any parents will know that it is SUCH A RELEIF when you see and KNOW that your child is WHOLE, HEALTHY AND HAPPY, SOZO. 


   SOZO??? What is SOZO you may or may not be thinking…


JESUS'S Name in Hebrew is Y E S H U A. 


             His Name MEANS 

S A L V A T I O N. 

  The GREEK WORD for SAVED is 

S O Z O.         :0)

SOZO =TO SAVEDELIVER, PROTECT, HEAL, PRESERVE, DO WELL, AND

BE MADE   W H O L E.  

  The WORD OF LIFE declares that God's Promises is for us AND OUR CHILDREN (Acts 2:39)… God promises you in Psalm 91 a LONG LIFE AND SALVATION. He RENEWS OUR YOUTH like the eagle's and satisfies us WITH GOOD (Psalm 103)

  We encourage you beautiful Family to continue to SPEAK THE WORD OF LIFE, LOVE AND SHALOM (PERFECT PEACE OF GOD) over your loved ones and yourself. GOD IS REALLY GOOD AND ALWAYS FAITHFUL TO DO WHAT HE SAYS HE IS GOING TO DO.  He will NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU. He is SUCH A BEAUTIFUL FATHER GOD that He has EVEN given EVERYONE the VERY PART OF Himself Who IS CHRIST, suffering ONCE for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might BRING US TO HIMSELF, being put to death in the flesh but MADE ALIVE BY THE LIVING SPIRIT OF LOVE (1 Peter 3:18). 

 CHRIST DIED FOR ALL, BLESSING US WITH HIS 

F R E E D O M (Galatians 5:1),

that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

Therefore, from now on, we REGARD NO ONE ACCORDING TO THE FLESH. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh…Therefore, if ANYONE is IN CHRIST, he IS A NEW CREATION; old things have passed away; behold, ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW. 

Now all things are of God, Who has reconciled us to Himself THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, and has given us the Ministry of Reconciliation, that is, that GOD was IN CHRIST reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us The WORD of Reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5).

BORN IN HOPE – THE MIRACULOUS BIRTH STORY OF OUR SON JEDIDIAH

Probably the most popular Allman Brothers tune is the song “Ramblin' Man”. There is a lyric in the song that states, “I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus, rolling down Highway 41”. That didn't exactly happen with Jedidiah, but his birth story ended in a way very similar. Jill and I had been on the road August through November 2011 for our 7th U.S. tour. Thanksgiving Day and after we spent some quality time with the California family (Jill's side), but decided it was time to pack up and leave soon since Jedidiah's due date was just less than a month away. We had some people we wanted to see in Carlsbad, New Mexico, and we wanted to get back to Arkansas in plenty of time to have the baby with our midwife. After playing one last show/musical worship night at Carpinteria Community Church, we decided to head out and get to Carlsbad, New Mexico. Since it was on the way, we had always heard about the White Sands of New Mexico so we decided to stop there first. Once we arrived at the White Sands National Monument we stayed there all day with the RV off, and decided to start the Sea Turtle back up around 5pm (The Sea Turtle is our turquoise RV which can be viewed on the music video “We Carry On” at our youtube page www.youtube.com/soulsingingduo). When I went to flip our batteries back on, in order to start the engine, the switch to the engine battery had somehow malfunctioned and would not click back on. For one hour I tried clicking this switch with not one successful attempt. I took the entire switch box apart to examine and clean the switch internally, but still had no success. At this point we would have liked to have called our Roadside assistance with Good Sams, but we had weak cell phone service. The park ranger came by asking us to leave and we told him we couldn't, but that we were fine for the night because we had propane and plenty of gas to run the generator. He agreed to let us spend the night there and to check back with us in the morning. Before all of this I had probably tried clicking the switch to the engine battery about 250 times. It was the night of Decmeber 3rd, and our friends in Carlsbad were expecting us December 4th. Blessedly we weren't far from Carlsbad. We spent the night in the beautiful White Sands of New Mexico.


Sometime in the middle of the night, I all of a sudden felt prompted by the Holy Spirit to read Psalm 1. GOD had been talking to me for sometime about memorizing Psalm 1, and it happened to be a great time to do it. I noticed one verse standing out in particular as I read over the Psalm. It just rung out in my heart over and over, “In whatsoever I do I will prosper.” I felt the Faith and Trust in GOD by the Power of the Holy Spirit building up inside me and I decided to give the switch another try in FAITH while stating this SCRIPTURE. The first time I stated it and clicked the switch there was no click still. But the second or third time I did this in a row (I don't specifically remember which time) but immediately, the switch clicked and I started the engine. With the generator running I was able to turn the engine back off and leave the battery switch on where there wouldn't be any parasitic drain on our 12 volt. (If this doesn't make complete sense, on RV's, sometimes your old engine battery gets weak and every time you try to start the RV back up after it's been sitting a while, the battery is too weak to start the engine. This was the case with our battery which is why I'd turn it off when we'd stop. But with the generator running, it keeps the 12 volt charged, so we were set). Point being made, GOD WORKS, GOD IS THE WORD (John 1:1-14), and when you quote THE LITERAL WORD OF GOD in specific situations, POWER happens when we believe (Hebrews 4:12 ONM = For the WORD OF GOD is Living and Powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword and pierces until separation of breath of life and spirit, of joints and marrow and passing judgments on the thoughts and understandings of your heart:) After about 1 hour and 250 attempts with absolutely no success, I quoted Psalm 1's “in whatsoever I do I shall prosper” while clicking the switch, and we had a working switch again within 5 seconds.

Early on December 4th we had been awake and taking a stroll, watching the beautiful sunrise across the white sands.

We soon saw several cars entering our section of the park and knew the gates were re-opened. We took off for the mountains on the 82 through the beautiful Lincoln National Forest. We stopped soon in Cloudcroft at a sweet little mercantile type store that had excellent homemade donuts and cheap coffee, and then headed further east through the mountains (A+ donuts if you ever go skiing in Cloudcroft, New Mexico.  Just ask the locals where to head for donuts). 

After the beautiful drive across the U.S. 82 (Absolutely Gorgeous drive), it was before sundown on December 4th when we reached Carlsbad and we had not been sleeping many hours for several nights in a row. But no worries, this wasn't our first time on the road with little sleep.  Besides, Jedidiah's got weeks to go, right? Coming into Carlsbad that afternoon we met up with our new friends we were going to see (Rick and Jeanie - who are really knowledgeable on getting great mileage on vehicles http://pecostwister.com), and parked the RV at their place to get some free electricity. That night a snow storm hit Carlsbad and the roads froze over. However, something much more rare than that happened in Carlsbad that night, Jill went into labor. We both thought it was the Braxton Hicks contractions that people talk about (basically fake contractions that happen about three weeks before the baby's due). We called our kind midwife (Brenda Smith in Conway, AR for those of you looking for the best midwife in central Arkansas) and she comforted us, as the contractions got further and further apart and became milder. At this point I had a desire to take off, but we had no choice but to stay in Carlsbad since it was now night and the roads were iced. I got very little sleep that night as it was tough for me to relax. Jill blessedly got a couple hours of rest, but we still hadn't averaged much sleep at all for about four nights in a row. When morning came the contractions had not stopped, and they began to get a little closer together. At noon after the thaw and snow trucks had cleared the roads, we packed up and got back on the highway as fast as the Sea Turtle would go, about 65-70mph. Just before leaving, I spoke with another new friend we made who was a pastor in Carlsbad and he told me a, “Just in case you need to know this...” bit of information about how to safely cut and tie off an umbilical chord to help the baby and mother, along with what tools I'd need. He used to be a paramedic and did this because he felt like he should tell me as the LORD led him do this. I thought, “Man, I don't need to know this. I'll get her back to Arkansas in time.” I'm very glad he listened to GOD.

When we'd crossed into west Texas, we had noticed our water tank was really full on the RV. There was absolutely no legal dump site around for miles and miles, and no one we could pay or even ask to do this in this part of Texas, so we made a decision to do a dump and run off the side of the highway. Now even if you're dumping grey water, like your soap and dish water, it's still something you're not supposed to do. We finally found a red clay looking road going off the main country highway to the left and took it. The snow had covered the ground here the night before as well, but it had melted in this area by now and the dirt road was wet, but solid. As we got on the dirt road I didn't feel like getting a big fine in case someone saw us dumping our grey water near the highway, so I drove up the road a while. After topping a hill on the road, the seemingly solid road all of a sudden went to mush. We got stuck. We couldn't move at all! I was smashing the gas pedal down throwing the RV into forward and reverse to try and rock it out of the mud and get some traction, but ended up sliding all the way over to the right side of the road about a couple feet from a tall embankment. Being stuck and trying not to think of the worst as Jill's contractions were continuously getting closer, I heard that Still Small Voice, the Voice from GOD, once you accept Jesus as LORD of lords/GOD and HE comes to live inside you (John 14:15-18, 23, 26-27, 1 Corinthians 2:12, 2 Corinthians 4:6-7, 3:4-6, 6:16-17, 9:8, 12:9, Galatians 5:22-26, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Acts 15:8, Psalm 61:2, 1 John 4:13). I tell you HE rescues us from trouble (Psalm 91). As I was in reverse and turning the wheel to the left to avoid sliding the rear passenger side of the RV into the embankment on the right, the wheels hopelessly spun and we dug deeper into the mud.  Then I heard the Voice Tell me to turn the steering wheel to the right and go in reverse. I thought in man's knowledge that would make the back of the RV slam into the embankment. But, I was in trouble and going nowhere with man's knowledge and needed help to get out of nowhere Texas since no people were around to help (and let's not even talk about cell reception in West Texas). I turned the wheel to the right thinking the back of the RV might hit the embankment, and the opposite happened. Only by the GRACE OF Y'SHUA (That's Hebrew for JESUS), did the back of the RV end up going left toward the middle of the muddy road and we started getting a little traction as I was eventually able to gas it enough to get to the top of the dirt hill again where we regained solid ground. After the quick dump and run back closer to the highway, we were off again heading toward Interstate 20 to go through Dallas.

Once we reached Dallas and hit Interstate 30 it had been dark for a while. After not sleeping much for many days I eventually got to the “head-bobbing” stage of driving at night and needed to avoid falling asleep at the wheel, and coffee and red bull wasn't helping at all. I finally got to the point where my body felt like it was literally shutting down in areas and I had to pull over. We stopped at a rest stop probably about halfway to Texarkana from Dallas. I set an alarm and me and sweet Jill could finally relax and as we got a couple hours of sleep. She was still having contractions and they just started to get a little more intense for a short period of time when we reached Dallas, but she seemed far from the one minute contractions.  Much of the trip she was quoting Isaiah 53:4-5 believing JESUS bore her pain, as she stared at the "Prince of Peace" portrait of JESUS, painted with Akiane Kramarik(AT EIGHT YEARS OLD), which was hanging in our RV. 
                           

As she quoted Is. 53:4 over and over, and we prayed in the Spirit very often, The LORD used His Supernatural Prayer Language of praying in The Spirit (The Gift of Tongues, that you can read about in The Bible), to make her labor and our experience much smoother.  So many of her contractions for over 24 hours would be like 10 seconds and just stop.  Until the last hour, her contractions had not reached 50 seconds.  Ask most moms about their first birth and you'll get a different story as some go through long contractions for over one day straight.  Jill will explain to people she fought with the SWORD and GOD blessed her.  Jill hadn't been able to sleep much while we were driving because the Sea Turtle is shaky at 65-70mph. After a couple hours at this rest stop our alarm went off, and we turned it off. Then we just ended up falling soundly asleep again. Shortly after this another miracle happened, and I mean the SUPERNATURAL OF GOD. I think it was an Angel of LIGHT from GOD. I was sound asleep for the first time in about four nights and it was now sometime after midnight, during the morning of December 6th, 2011. I remember sleeping on the fold out couch and having Jill on my right side, while on my left side was the RV wall. In mid-sleep I felt on the left side of my face an extreme heat that got hotter and hotter until it made me rise up abruptly from sleep. It felt like someone had a gas heater and had gotten it about 2 inches away from my face inside the RV, just close enough where it wouldn't burn me. I've truly never felt anything like this, it was SUPERNATURAL.  I even frantically looked outside the RV window to check if anything was outside... guess I had to make sure the RV wasn't on fire. But of course it was a cold Texas night and whatever it was that brought the heat, we were unable to see with our physical eyes. It was a SUPERNATURAL event. It felt like fire on the left side of my face. I felt like I could sleep 17 straight hours, but the fire of GOD came and woke me up. We hit the road again and the contractions really started getting serious soon after this.

When finally got to Texarkana and GOD had told me it was time to call our midwife. I called her and it was about 4am, so she didn't answer. I was timing the contractions on my cell phone (which had a stopwatch) so I could give the midwife the latest. The midwife heard her cell in her sleep and graciously awoke and called us back. I informed her the contractions were at 50-53 seconds long and Jill's water had broke. She said, pull over, get the RV warm, get the blankets out, and have the baby. I urged her over and over telling her we could be in central Arkansas in 90 minutes and she kept insisting I pull over and deliver the baby. She stated our baby would come within two hours and gave me a quick course on delivering a child.  Smart lady... our midwife. We looked for the next well lit exit after passing Texarkana and saw nothing for a while. Finally an exit sign for Hope appeared with a blue hospital sign. This looked great, for one reason because RV's can usually park at hospitals and the hospitals don't care since their lots are so huge. We knew the hospital parking lot would be well lit and spacious. We pulled into the parking lot and parked at the very edge of the lot so we would not disturb anyone with our generator running. By the time I had pulled over in the lot, gotten the heater running off the generator, and found a bunch of sheets and comforters that were just given to us recently, it was about 4:57 am, and I clearly heard GOD again speak on the inside of me to get the stuff ready for the umbilical chord and get to the back of the RV with Jill because he is coming out at 5am.

Immediately at 5 am on the morning of December 6th, 2011, Jedidiah Jason VanCleve was born and took his first breath in my hands. We quickly got Jill and Jedidiah back to the couch, took care of the umbilical chord and were on the phone with our midwife rejoicing together. What happened next is actually another miracle, and a literal prophecy fulfilled which Pastor Miguel Estrella in Fort Bragg, California spoke over us that would happen with Jedidiah, but GOD has told us to seal up the rest of this story to the public for a later time in our lives. I think this is because it could really hurt some peoples' feelings and make people very angry at others, so there's just no need to have strife as we are to live peaceably with all mankind as far as it depends on us (Romans 12:18, 1 John 4:7-8, Hebrews 12:14-15, 13:1-3, Matthew 15:11), so we're going to do that.

WOW, on the middle of a multiple hour journey back from Carlsbad, NM through the snow, Jedidiah happened to be born in Hope, Arkansas. Literally, he was born in HOPE. Just another miracle by our FATHER. The Angels of LIGHT were with us, and most importantly IMMANUEL was there (Immanuel means GOD WITH US) (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, Exodus 3:14 & John 8:58, John 14:7-9, Colossians 1:13-16, Philippians 2:5-8, Hebrews 1). Jedidiah was born in the back of the Sea Turtle, in the Hope Hospital parking lot, as we pulled off of Interstate 30. Haha, we like his birth certificate as it literally reads that his birthplace was in the “Sea Turtle RV”. Yes!

We then headed back to central Arkansas to meet with our kind midwife Brenda, but first stopped at my dad's place of work that morning. We pulled in the parking lot and I went in and told him, “Come outside, we have an early Christmas present for you.” He loved his early Christmas present. He always will, as well as will we.



Brenda examined Jedidiah and told us, "You couldn't have asked for a healthier baby."  Jedidiah was born three weeks early, weighing 7 lbs 9 ounces and was 21 & 1/2 inches long. 

Thank YOU LORD he came early.  All of the time we never saw a human doctor (we're not speaking bad against human doctors), but THE DOCTOR, YAHWEH, made Jedidiah in the womb and kept him healthy.  



We quoted verses over him in the womb often and GOD blessed him with HIS WORD.  Yet another miracle, when I told my mom Jill was pregnant in April 2011, she later told me smiling, "GOD TOLD me to start praying for your unborn child back in October(2010)."

Thank YOU JESUS, GOD ALL MIGHTY! Everything was made through YOU, our FATHER and our FRIEND (Isaiah 9:6, Colossians 1:14-17, John 5:23, 15:15) and we thank YOU for this GOD GIVEN event in which you protected and held me, Jill and Jedidiah safely in The Palm of Your Hand (Psalm 91, John 10:28)!!! YOUR Blessing truly makes rich, with no sorrow added (Proverbs 10:22). GOD IS LOVE (1 John 4:14-19).

These Words are from Psalm 127 & 128, the Psalms The LORD had us read right before we found out we were pregnant in April 2011. :)

Behold, CHILDREN ARE A HERITAGE FROM THE LORD. The fruit of the womb is A REWARD.Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. HAPPY is the man who has his quiver full of them; Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine in the very heart of your house, your children like olive plants all around your table. Behold, thus shall THE MAN BE BLESSED WHO FEARS THE LORD.
