A CALL TO GODLY ACTIVE DUTY

Post by Victor Hafichuk »

If the Lord means anything at all to us, we will take on whatever duty we’re able and do it to the best of our ability according to His will. Agreed?

The Lord gives each one of us, none exempted, something to work with to spread the Good News and Truths of the Kingdom of God to the farthest reaches of the earth. It’s time we all got serious. Isn’t that the stated goal of the Scriptures? For example:

Ephesians 4:1-16 MKJV
(1) I, therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the calling with which you are called,
(2) with all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, forbearing one another in love,
(3) endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
(4) There is one body and one Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling,
(5) one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
(6) one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in you all.
(7) But to every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
(8) Therefore He says, "When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive and gave gifts to men."
(9) (Now that He ascended, what is it but that He also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
(10) He who descended is the same also as He who ascended up far above all heavens, that He might fill all things.)
(11) And truly He gave some to be apostles, and some to be prophets, and some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers,
(12) for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
(13) And this until we all come into the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a full-grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
(14) so that we no longer may be infants, tossed to and fro and carried about by every wind of doctrine, in the dishonesty of men, in cunning craftiness, to the wiles of deceit.
(15) But that you, speaking the truth in love, may in all things grow up to Him who is the Head, even Christ;
(16) from whom the whole body, fitted together and compacted by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of each part, producing the growth of the body to the edifying of itself in love.

“And He said to them, Go into all the world, proclaim the Gospel to all the creation” (Mark 16:15 MKJV).

“Therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. Therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Timothy 2:1-3 MKJV).

It is asked by some, “What should I do? What should I say, if anything – to my friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, new acquaintances, and strangers? What do I post on Facebook, Twitter, the TPOT Forum, YouTube, or any other social media? Who am I? What is my duty before God?”

There are those who think it’s only up to ministers to do the talking, teaching, and preaching, and not up to every believer. Some think they must grow and develop to some level before speaking and sharing what the Lord has done or is doing with them. Others have a notion that they must hear a Voice, even a specific Word from God directing them to speak certain things to certain people; otherwise, they should remain silent and passive, lest they offend God and man.

None of these things are so. That is all erroneous thinking, which may be due to false teaching, fear – fear of social rejection, loss, embarrassment, and conflict. It could be due to laziness, carelessness, and perhaps, to ignorance of the duty of every Christian. Ultimately, such thinking is a product of unbelief.

Do you believe or don’t you?

“Examine yourselves, whether you are in the faith, prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves, that Jesus Christ is in you, unless you are reprobates” (2 Corinthians 13:5 MKJV)?

Even before I came to faith in Christ, I was asking questions and sharing with family, friends, employers, both professing believers and unbelievers what I was thinking. I look back and see that it was valuable and necessary to do so, both for me and for others.

It was during those days that the Lord gave me three dreams. I was talking to many about them, some of whom were fascinated, especially with my first dream of the Lord’s Coming. They couldn’t argue with me. I had the experience; they couldn’t deny that. They knew I wasn’t lying, but sincere. They knew there was something very unusual, something special about the dream.

I was telling them what I was going through – not everything, not to everyone, but here and there as circumstances arose and opportunities presented themselves. Not that I was looking for them; they just came, and I naturally flowed with them; I really didn’t understand or plan what was going on; it didn’t matter.

People could easily tell I wasn’t trying to push anything on them and I wasn’t religious, so they were good with that and considerate at the least; attentive if not quite interested. I think there were those who were even sympathetic or empathetic with me because I was struggling in a search, somewhat baring my soul to them. As I look back, I see that it was all good to talk these things out.

In sharing with others, they shared with me and I learned. These conversations were important for my journey – and theirs, wherever they were. Then, when converted and granted repentance, I really had things to say! I was overcome with excitement and joy.

Throughout my spiritual journey, I’ve heard and spoken many things concerning the Lord and His Kingdom. I’ve made many mistakes; I’ve pushed things on people and strove to convince, but all in all, not a serious problem that I see.

The Lord laid on me different levels of ministry over the years, not only because I was called to be a ministering member in the Lord’s body and speaker to the world, but because I was simply someone in whom Christ dwelt. I was a “Christian.” He desired that I testify from where I was at.

“What I tell you in darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear, proclaim on the housetops” (Matthew 10:27 MKJV).

Consider the Scriptural Testimony. Consider the Samaritan woman at the well. Was she a “minister” ordained to preach? She only did what came naturally. The same with Zacchaeus, Stephen, Philip, his four daughters, Aquila and Priscilla, Apollos, Lydia, Joseph of Arimathea, Nicodemus the elder, the Ethiopian eunuch, Mary Magdalene, other women following, Lois, Eunice, and all the disciples who were not called to be apostles or any other particular ministry, but whom the Lord nevertheless sent to proclaim the arrival of the Kingdom. Jesus empowered them by prayer to preach, cast out devils, heal the sick, and even raise the dead.

I tell you, every one of those believers who experienced His blessing couldn’t help but speak. God was with them as new and fresh believers. They didn’t need to be “ordained,” prepared and trained “men of God.” Not saying there aren’t extended waiting and training periods for some as Moses, Paul, and others.

There is no such thing as a true believer in Christ, no matter how new, that doesn’t speak out or not have the right to.

Get this:

Numbers 11:25-29 MKJV
(25) And the LORD came down in a cloud and spoke to him, and took of the spirit on him and gave it to the seventy elders. And it happened when the Spirit rested upon them, they prophesied. But they never did so again.
(26) But two of the men stayed in the camp; the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other was Medad. And the Spirit rested upon them. And they were of those who were written, but did not go out to the tabernacle. And they prophesied in the camp.
(27) And a young man ran and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.
(28) And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, make them cease.
(29) And Moses said to him, Are you jealous for my sake? Would God that all the LORD's people were prophets, that the LORD would put His Spirit upon them!

And this similar event:

Mark 9:38-41 MKJV
(38) And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out demons in Your Name, and he does not follow us. And we forbade him, because he does not follow us.
(39) But Jesus said, Do not forbid him. For there is no one who shall do a work of power in My Name who can lightly speak evil of Me.
(40) For he who is not against us is for us.
(41) For whoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in My Name, because you belong to Christ, truly I say to you, He shall not lose his reward.

I’ve told you that while we of our own selves have absolutely nothing to offer God, we can and usually will have something God has given us to work with. If we’re faithful with it, He commends us and rewards us with more. If we aren’t faithful with it, no matter how small or great it may be, He will dispossess us of it and give it to someone else and then He’ll dispossess us, as well. “Use it or lose it,” the saying goes. It’s the way it is. It is God’s Law.

Matthew 25:14-30 MKJV
(14) For it is as if a man going abroad called his own servants and gave them his goods.
(15) And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to each according to his ability. And he went abroad at once.
(16) And going he who had received the five talents traded with them, and made another five talents.
(17) And likewise, he who had received two, he also gained another two.
(18) But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the earth and hid his lord's silver.
(19) After a long time, the lord of those servants came and took account with them.
(20) And so he who had received five talents came and brought another five talents, saying, Lord, you delivered five talents to me. Behold, I have gained five talents above them.
(21) His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.
(22) He also who had received two talents came and said, Lord, you delivered two talents to me. Behold, I have gained two other talents above them.
(23) His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.
(24) And he who had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew that you were a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter.
(25) And I was afraid and went and hid your talent in the earth. Lo, you have yours.
(26) His lord answered and said to him, Evil and slothful servant! You knew that I reaped where I did not sow, and gathered where I did not scatter,
(27) then you should have put my money to the exchangers, and coming I would have received my own with interest.
(28) Therefore take the talent from him and give it to him who has ten talents.
(29) For to everyone who has, more shall be given, and he will abound. But from him who has not, even that which he has shall be taken away from him.
(30) And throw the unprofitable servant into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Remember the parable of the talents.

I hereby call on every one of you who have attended The Path of Truth for enough time to learn about the King and His Kingdom to get to work and spread the Great News to others. Have you been helped even a little bit? Have you been healed, blessed, made free, enlightened, enriched, and granted wisdom and understanding?

Have you been raised from the dead or delivered of devils? Then how can you not help but speak up and freely share with others what you’ve been freely given? Will you not give God the glory?

And I say to all, don’t just come to get; come to give. Don’t come to be served but to serve. In serving, you’ll receive. Don’t come to just be a part of a group; come and get involved. Consider that you have an obligation to the Gracious One Who has been Merciful to you.

How can you get involved? There are countless ways. For examples, you can do Facebook and YouTube. Answer people who are writing us in those places, whether they do so for good or evil. Answer them. Give them a reason for the hope in you. Reprove works of darkness instead of partaking with them. Let the children of darkness know there is light. Speak the Word that ultimately raises the dead.

1 Peter 3:14-17 MKJV
(14) But if you also suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed. And do not fear their fear, nor be troubled,
(15) but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and be ready always to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason of the hope in you, with meekness and fear;
(16) having a good conscience, that while they speak against you as evildoers they may be shamed, those falsely accusing your good behavior in Christ.
(17) For it is better, if the will of God wills it, to suffer for well-doing than for evil-doing.

Do you expect to be praised, received, and appreciated when you identify with the Light of the world and of men? Forget it. Don’t you believe what He says?

“And you will be hated by all men for My Name's sake, but the one who endures to the end shall be kept safe” (Matthew 10:22 MKJV).

John 15:15-23 MKJV
(15) No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master does. But I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.
(16) You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatever you shall ask of the Father in My name, He may give it to you.
(17) These things I command you, that you love one another.
(18) If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
(19) If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
(20) Remember the word that I said to you, The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they have kept My saying, they will also keep yours.
(21) But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.
(22) If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
(23) He who hates Me hates My Father also.

So, what should you do, Lord willing?

Can you edit? Can you translate? Can you write? Can you research, investigate, or do studies? Scour the internet through Google? Check out false teachers, see what people are saying about us or doing with our materials?

Do you have computer skills – programming, video and audio production? Would you like to put our teachings on audio for those who can’t read or who would find it handier in their busy schedules to listen rather than read? Do you have musical abilities, whether as a musician, singer, composer or as a technical producer?

Can you farm? Sell? Gather and organize information? There isn’t just TPOT but Harvest Haven as well that the Lord has entrusted to us to reach out to the world in every way possible. There’s no end to what can be done. We have much work ahead of us.

Discussing your interests and abilities with Ronnie, he could give you suggestions and assignments.

People of God, we have come to that place in man’s history where God has appointed us to end the ages of old and to introduce the new. We are here to usher in the Kingdom of God.

Do you get it? This is the Day of the Lord. The prophets, apostles, and saints have done their part over the ages so that we might enjoy the tremendous, undeserved blessings we now have. We are indebted to them all. In Christ, they shed their blood for our salvation. We cannot, dare not, sit on our hands and do nothing with the “talent” or five or ten the Lord has entrusted to us. I don’t care if it’s a nickel or a million dollars. We have work to do.

I’d like to hear from all of you. Are you in? Many of you have already been hard at the Lord’s work. Let us as a community of believers give it all we’ve got. It’s the least we can do. Are you in? Let me, Martin, Marilyn, and Ronnie know. We await a reply from each one of you.

Pray, people. Give thanks for this day and stand ready to serve. God’s will be done. Let us serve Him in faith and not merely in our own devices. Ask the Lord what He would have you to do. Wait on Him. Look to Him. Don’t be hasty or presumptuous; don’t assume you can do anything you feel like doing. He Alone knows what He would have you do. Victor may have his ideas, knowledge, convictions, and desires, but you need to know from the Lord for yourself.

The Lord’s will be done, not ours.

I'm definitely in.
I have been moving the topics from the "Moderator Workings" to the applicable sections when there are any to move.

Project working on now are transcriptions from the Bible Readings and sending applicable sections to Ronnie when I finish an entire book.

I have answered some postings to others in the forum and on FB when I am able, have something to share. Am also posting as much as possible on my FB page.

I am truly thankful to the Lord to be a part of His work and spreading His message!

Amen, Victor!

This is the Day of the Lord, and I am thankful for what the Lord has revealed to me in the past months regarding His Day, you (Victor) His prophet, The Path of Truth, Taking the Land, His Establishing His Kingdom, and the glorious restoration/reconciliation of the earth and everyone and everything in it! Praise be to God!

What's more, how blessed we here who have been called to be faithful are, should we prevail! The Lord has granted us (as the title of this topic suggests) an ACTIVE DUTY in the establishment of His Kingdom and Will on earth as it is in Heaven.
People of God, we have come to that place in man’s history where God has appointed us to end the ages of old and to introduce the new. We are here to usher in the Kingdom of God.

Do you get it? This is the Day of the Lord. The prophets, apostles, and saints have done their part over the ages so that we might enjoy the tremendous, undeserved blessings we now have.
Amen and Amen! The prophets spoke of this Day! The apostles died for this Day! This has all been Christ's will all along, culminating in this end of the old and beginning of the new, the Sabbath Day, the work of men finished and the rest in the Lord!

I'm so very thankful for everything the Lord is doing, and though we continue to suffer for Him, to toil for His will, He is not far off. All the reason to rejoice!

And the Lord has joined us together for this work. It is a Gathering unto Him. We are here to bear one another's burdens, in our walk, but also in His work.

Galatians 6:2 MKJV
(2)  Bear one another's burdens, and so you will fulfill the Law of Christ.

We are here to serve Him by serving one another.

John 13:12-17 MKJV
(12)  So after He had washed their feet and had taken His garments and had reclined again, He said to them, Do you know what I have done to you?
(13)  You call Me the Teacher, and Lord, and you say well, for I AM.
(14)  If then I, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.
(15)  For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.
(16)  Truly, truly, I say to you, A servant is not greater than his master, neither is he who is sent greater than he who sent him.
(17)  If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.

Hebrews 6:10-12 MKJV
(10)  For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
(11)  And we desire that each one of you show the same eagerness to the full assurance of hope to the end,
(12)  that you be not slothful, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Galatians 5:13-14 MKJV
(13)  For, brothers, you were called to liberty. Only do not use the liberty for an opening to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
(14)  For all the Law is fulfilled in one word, even in this, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

Romans 12:1-2 MKJV
(1)  I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service.
(2)  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is that good and pleasing and perfect will of God.

Lord willing, I will serve how I am able. As some may have seen, I'm usually addressing people via Facebook, but as I have discussed with you Victor, in what ways I can, I'm here to serve. I'm thankful for what the Lord has given me thus far, and I am hopeful there is more to come should I remain faithful.

Thank you, Lord! And thank you, Victor. I appreciate all that you have done thus far, laying the Foundation in Christ for all those who come upon the Stone to pick up the cross and continue on in this work.

Had it not been for what you've spent half a century doing in Christ before I was even born, I would not have come out of the darkness and wickedness I was in and come to see or know these things. As the saints and prophets before, I am indebted to you as well. All by Christ and His doing.

1 Samuel 12:24 GNB
(24) Obey the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart. Remember the great things he has done for you.

I am in Victor!

The timing of this is amazing, yet again from The Lord, as I had been thinking and praying on these things. Here at TPOT is home. This is my family. This is The Stone. This is Zion:

Isaiah 2:2-3 WEB
It shall happen in the latter days, that the mountain of Yahweh's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be raised above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. Many peoples shall go and say, "Come, let's go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.


I've been to and fro my whole life, living in complete hell in the world and hell in the church, being brought here only by God's grace and I'm thankful for it.

I share online when I have words come to my mind to share, whether it is facebook, twitter, youtube or the forum. I was able to meet with a guy a couple weeks ago that goes to my old church, and share everything The Lord has done for me here (he hasn't responded since, but just reached out today to follow-up).

I have also been interested in audio recordings, but it hasn't been the time yet, as Ronnie would give me good feedback and I trust what he's given. I have come to realize , I sounded religious, condemning and trying to hard at times. I still have the desire to do them, but want to do it as The Lord sees fit in His timing.

I believe I'm currently at a place of more walk, and less talk: as I have been religious and God is flushing it out. I share when opportunities are there to do so.

I'm not good with farming, but am skilled with computers, typing, technology and in some mundane matters regarding health. Whatever is needed, and I'm able to do so, I'll help and do as requested. Nothing is more important.

I am in.

As for what I've been given by the Lord, I'm a programmer (back-end) and am eager to help if called upon. I've started doing battle on Facebook as well, encouraged by others who have responded to posts and comments.

Thanks for the post, it has lifted my spirit. I know there is hope in the Lord and His Way and not in mine.

By God's grace and His and His alone, I will translate the Teachings in TPOT website in Traditional Chinese version and if God is willing, even the Simplified Chinese version. I am not proficient in Chinese but I believe as long as this is God's will, then He will put His words in my heart for the translation.
Glory be to Him only.

Hi everyone!

Amen to all what has been shared here.
I wrote an email to Victor and the elders after reading the new topic;

___________________________________________


To: Victor, Marilyn, Ronnie, Martin and James

Greetings everyone,

I red the new topic "A CALL TO GODLY ACTIVE DUTY".

AMEN, Victor. Amen, to every word spoken there. I preferred to send an email to you and the elders first, but if needed I can post it on the forum after. I am thankful because I think I received confirmation from God with this new thread.

I am totally in, I rejoice! It's been a few weeks I wanted to share something with you all, but I was not sure it was the right time. I enjoy singing Praises to the Lord. I used to be in a band before coming to TPOT.

I play the guitar, I can play a little keyboard too but it's really basic. I like to write as well and I composed a few songs.

One day, I was busy with one song on Garage Band. It took me almost all the day. I thought I was wasting my time and not honoring the Lord. I did pray about it instantly because I was not okay.

While praying, I heard "HOSANNA!" clearly in my head. I was asking the Lord if it was good to spend my time making music. At that moment, I was surprised to hear this. I went to my computer to check what is the meaning of the word "Hosanna". I checked the strong's, and in the Scriptures which verses are related
to the word.

What I have in mind now is when the Lord was coming in Jerusalem and the people were shouting;

Matthew 21:9

The multitudes who went in front of him,
and those who followed, kept shouting,
“Hosanna to the son of David!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!”

It appears also in Psalm 118:25;
"Save us now, we beg you, Yahweh!
Yahweh, we beg you, send prosperity now."

It seems that originally it meant; "Save us, please." And with the time the meaning changed. Nowadays it's used as a cry of hope and joy. Is that correct?

Was it from the Lord? I believe so. Can you tell me if I am erring?

I went on the forum to read but I don't remember if it was the same day.
It happened one month ago on the 18th February, I wrote down the date to be sure to not forget. On the forum, I was not busy anymore with "Hosanna". I was checking some replies on many topics, and one name caught my attention, Rachel Gerard. I didn't know who she was. I don't remember how but I was led to a transcript of one Sabbath. The subject was about a music project!

I would like to work on a few songs you have been given. I have already some ideas. When it's ready I will send it to you. At the same time, I'd like to be corrected and chastened if needed.

I really don't want to fall into the snare of pride by doing this.
Better doing nothing than to fall back in the ways of the world.

Like the song "It's Great to Be Somebody" says;

"I've waited for the riches; I've waited for fame;
I've longed for the glory, and all in His name"

So, if you have to give me a correction regarding the words, and the music,
I will do my best to receive it. Lord willing.

My prayer today is to be nobody to be able to serve Him right.
I will continue to speak the Truth on Facebook with posts, and in comments
when it's given. I have to confess that I was a bit lazy these last days.
Spending too much time on the internet.

For the reviews of the translation (French). I started last week "The case for coming out" and there are other ones I'd like to check. I have to finish "The reconciliation of all things". Ingrid sent me an email a few weeks ago, she is reviewing "The Good News". I think I've sent her the first correction I made. I will let you know how it goes.

I have some other things to share, maybe it's better to do it on the forum in the
appropriate section. I will let it here.

I am grateful! My heart is in joy. Praise Be The Lord.
Stay all Blessed! May the Peace of The Lord stay upon you.

Thierry

Amen Victor,
Thank you for posting this, The Lord has granted me the courage to be speaking out whenever oportunity presents itself and I've been obedient in doing so. I don't have all the answers but that's fine, I've been fed enough, it's time to give more/share more of what I've been receiving for free, undeservingly so for so long. I'm seeing recently where my social media activities regarding His words are on the up, Thank you Lord Jesus for this gift. I'm in, ready to serve wherever the Lord sees fit. His will be done

Am I in? Its not like I've been waiting for something like this MY ENTIRE LIFE!!!! The social-outcast that slowly lost all moral grounding for the sake of not being alone is who I was, and I now know with Jesus Christ I was never alone nor will I ever be HALLELUJAH!

Psalm 139:7-12 Amplified Bible (AMP)
7
Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8
If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in Sheol (the nether world, the place of the dead), behold, You are there.
9
If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,

Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will take hold of me.
11
If I say, “Surely the darkness will cover me,
And the night will be the only light around me,”
12
Even the darkness is not dark to You and conceals nothing from You,
But the night shines as bright as the day;
Darkness and light are alike to You.

Let us answer this call knowing victory is at hand for Jesus Christ's servants.

Joel 2:1 Amplified Bible (AMP)
The Terrible Visitation
Blow the trumpet in Zion [warning of impending judgment],
Sound an alarm on My holy mountain [Zion]!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble and shudder in fear,
For the [judgment] day of the Lord is coming;
It is close at hand,

I ask one thing my brothers. I am young, and inexperienced in the things of the Lord, I haven't even read through the entire bible yet. Yet I know the timing is true for even tomorrow I will be faced with all the wisdom and knowledge the world can throw at me. I am unlearned, uneducated, unwise, and double-minded in their eyes. Indeed many of them know that even very recently I was zealous for things most professing Christ would consider heresy, and I know now that it was. None who I could currently speak to would be unjustified in this view.

So I don't know what the Lord is going to do as of yet. Many doubts still run through my mind. Without them I'd be far more effective for him. But I suppose it isn't necessarily how effective we are, but how effective He is as purging the dredge of falsehood from those who, like Joshua and Caleb, trust in Him. I offer all I have to give, knowing Christ will watch over me. I'm even willing to move to Harvest Haven if that be what the Lord desires. Currently it seems prudent to mature more in light of my most recent actions; but if the Lord says go (no matter where it is) who am I to say no?

I've left home multiple times for lies, I've lost friends for lies, I incurred debt for lies. By the strength and power of Jesus Christ I will suffer for the truth for the first time in my life and walk the path that leads to life. I offer all my services (though I still need a job and to pay my dad for the truck he just got me). I don't know how to farm but would absolutely love to learn, I know how to market, cook, and I can number crunch like a boss (the Lord has blessed me with business related mathematic skills). Just no calculus. I love making new recipes and experimenting (I personally enjoy vegan though I'm not strict on the diet) and for awhile I use to make recipes on a site that gives tons of nutritional data. cronometer.com

Let's let people know who Jesus Christ is my bretheren. My only advice (mostly for me) is stay humble, don't short-sell yourselves by denying what the Lord has blessed you with, and be bold with the proclamation of the gospel for the glory of our Lord. And for anyone looking for one of the greatest conversation starters EVER.

Jeremiah 32:40 Amplified Bible (AMP)
40 I will make an everlasting covenant with them that I will do them good and not turn away from them; and I will put in their heart a fear and reverential awe of Me, so that they will not turn away from Me.

Lets us all fear the Lord, and tremble at His word. Let us trust in the God of faithfulness and truth.

Isaiah 65:16
“Because he who blesses himself on the earth
Will bless himself by the God of truth and faithfulness;
And he who swears [an oath] on the earth
Will swear by the God of truth and faithfulness;
Because the former troubles are forgotten,
And because they are hidden from My sight.

I'm in.

This post is timely, and it makes me consider that getting fired for talking of God may be all right. Or a total mess-up. Oh, well, that's in His Power.

As for what I can do, false teacher research work has been neat, but perhaps it's time for another person to help because it's such a long list of teachers. I'm thankful to God for what He's given me to do on Facebook with recording battles and such, too. (I currently fare poorly fighting external devils.)

Besides the research and recording, I can grow and maintain a forest, build fences, garden, write, cut down and process trees with a chainsaw, statistics and its software, and sharpshooting.

What good is all that for serving others in this Day? I don't know. I can only do what He's given for this age, and I'm thankful for that. Are there others on TPOT that I ought to serve as God directs? I don't know. Behold, you all are all the friends I have left -- the rest turned aside after they heard of Jesus Christ.

I'm in too.

I help with the assignments that Ronnie gives me to do. I appreciate being able to help with finding any mistakes on the website, creating a timeline for conference calls, and transcribing Bible reading recordings or videos when needed. Whatever you send me to work on I can learn how to do it, Lord willing.

Right now I'm working on the errors and omissions project.

Thank You, Lord, for this opportunity to serve.

By God’s Grace, I am in.

I must admit my thinking has been tainted in thinking I am hypocritical to speak up considering my wavering back and forth on what I must do. However, I am thankful to be where I am by the Lord’s grace and realizing it’s not about me or my righteousness, but about His. I am thankful for all that is happening here at TPOT. I have prayed for an answer in how I can be most helpful and I will wait on the Lord to hear, but I will start speaking with what I know to speak, and it starts with giving everyone an update on what has happened and is happening in my life.

I am back on 12 hour shifts with this storm we are dealing with here in NY and the update will be lengthy but I will not delay and longer. I confess I have been lazy and stubborn and as my recent conversation with Ronnie has shown, I allowed the devil to cloud my thinking into thinking I should keep quiet and listen for now but that only keeps me stagnant. It’s a blessing to be where we are and I need to shout from the rooftops all that the Lord is doing in my life. Thank you for the timing of this post. Thank You, Lord. I will be writing shortly, Lord willing.

Amen Victor, a timely writing,thank you for posting this!
By God's Grace, I am in!

The Lord has richly blessed me here in many ways, of which I am very grateful, coming to The Rock,I am being broken, which is needful and I'm grateful, I abhor my flesh, this man of sin inside of me, which The Lord will destroy with The Brightness of His Coming, I greatly anticipate that!! In the meantime I am here, desireing to be faithful with the talent He has given me. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. I am not good with technology, tho I am learning but i love gardening and i have a great desire to farm again, i am here sincerely seeking The Lords will what He would have me do, how He would have me serve, there's nothing I want more than to to serve Him according to His Will for His Glory. I would gladly work at Harvest Haven if that is The Lord s will.

Victor, I believe you are that prophet sent by God and by Gods Grace I will obey!
Joh 6:47 Truly, truly, I say to you, He who believes on Me has everlasting life.
Joh 6:48 I am the Bread of life.
Joh 6:49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and died.
Joh 6:50 This is the Bread which comes down from Heaven, so that a man may eat of it and not die.
Joh 6:51 I am the Living Bread which came down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he shall live forever. And truly the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
Joh 6:52 Then the Jews argued with one another, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
Joh 6:53 Then Jesus says to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves.
Joh 6:54 Whoever partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 6:55 For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
Joh 6:56 He who partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood dwells in Me, and I in him.
Joh 6:57 As the living Father has sent Me, and I live through the Father, so he who partakes of Me, even he shall live by Me.
Joh 6:58 This is the Bread which came down from Heaven, not as your fathers ate the manna, and died; he who partakes of this Bread shall live forever.
Joh 6:59 He said these things in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum.
The Words of Eternal Life

Joh 6:60 Then when they had heard, many of His disciples said, This is a hard saying, who can hear it?
Joh 6:61 But knowing in Himself that His disciples murmured about it, Jesus said to them, Does this offend you?
Joh 6:62 Then what if you should see the Son of Man going up where He was before?
Joh 6:63 It is the Spirit that makes alive, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit and are life.
Joh 6:64 But there are some of you who do not believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who is the one betraying Him.
Joh 6:65 And He said, Because of this I said to you that no one can come to Me unless it was given to him from My Father.
Joh 6:66 From this time many of His disciples went back into the things behind, and walked no more with Him.
Joh 6:67 Then Jesus said to the Twelve, Do you also wish to go away?
Joh 6:68 Then Simon Peter answered Him, Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the Words of eternal life.
Joh 6:69 And we have believed and have known that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Joh 6:70 Jesus answered them, Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? And one of you is a devil?
Joh 6:71 But he spoke of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon; for it was he who was about to betray Him, being one of the Twelve.

To God be the Glory!

An unworthy servant,

Stephen

I've also felt that the Lord has been urging me to speak, which I've avoided doing mostly due to fear of being presumptuous, but there's ultimately no excuse. Lately I've been simply referring people to TPOT, thinking that that would suffice. I don't believe it does.

Lord-willing, I'll have opportunities to speak up in the future. For now, I'm available to edit anything, as proofreading is probably my greatest (and possibly only) useful talent. I may have something to contribute musically, as instrumental music is probably my only other way to help. That's likely going to be much further down the road, though, as I currently lack equipment.

I'm willing to do any kind of grunt work such as assisting in transcribing Bible readings if needed.

Hello everyone,

I am very thankful for everyone’s replies, comments and sharing of your own experiences and happenings in your life. It’s wonderful to be a part of TPOT. I am learning so much and am thankful for all that God is giving, correcting and forgiving me for. I too, am “In” ready to do my part! But I do not know what part the Lord wants me to do, and so I will wait on Him. I currently work with special education kids at school, and feel that is what I do best, with all my heart. I enjoy cooking and looking up new recipes that are healthy.

I struggle with my weight and feel defeated most of the time, even though I DO know better and DO cook healthy. I’m trying to figure too much out on my own, and have come to know I am leaning on my own understanding and not trusting God. I’m still in unbelief. Only by the Grace of my Lord and Savior, will I come to know and understand that Faith is doing Gods Will, not mine. Trusting that He is The Way, The Truth, and the Life and I need to just believe Him!

Thank you Victor, and God bless you for always leading us, Thank you God for leading Victor!! To God be the Glory!

I’m in! I’ve helped with some things at TPOT website, such as editing the autobio and transcripts of recordings, and I send invites to people to like TPOT facebook page. I’m thankful to be able to help and am willing to help as needed. I don’t consider myself much of a writer, but I can do a pretty decent job of editing. I appreciate and have been learning from the FB and forum posts.

I have accounting skills and have been learning about gardening. By God’s grace I’ll have a raised bed garden this spring. I’ve always had an interest in nutrition. As for computers, I’m pretty good with MS Excel. Whatever the Lord has need of me, by His grace I’ll supply. My desire is to be helpful in whatever way I can and to walk in obedience.

I thought of these verses:

Heb 13:17 MKJV Yield to those leading you, and be submissive, for they watch for your souls, as those who must give account, that they may do it with joy and not with grief; for that is unprofitable for you.

Col 3:23 MKJV And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.

Hi Victor,

It is good to read this post and I agree with you.

There are times when I have something to say to people and keep my mouth shut instead of sharing what I have been given.

Victor said:
I hereby call on every one of you who have attended The Path of Truth for enough time to learn about the King and His Kingdom to get to work and spread the Great News to others. Have you been helped even a little bit? Have you been healed, blessed, made free, enlightened, enriched, and granted wisdom and understanding?

I have been helped more than a little bit. Each area you mention has greatly improved in my life and I am very thankful.

My first thought is to get more involved in communicating with people here, on Facebook and with other people I might be talking with.

"People of God, we have come to that place in man’s history where God has appointed us to end the ages of old and to introduce the new. We are here to usher in the Kingdom of God."

Amen!

The Lord has blessed and is blessing me greatly. It took two months of constant working but I have finished laying a floor in my appartment, which as you all know is why I haven't been on facebook much. The Lord is giving me a place of rest, from where I have no doubt much work will be done for Him. It's preparation time.
I am so thankful that for the past days the only thing I think is: "Lord, thank You! What can I do for you?" and then you post this, Victor. The perfect unity in the Lord's Body. I feel blessed beyond words.

So what could I do? I am working on more translations, one of which is "The gathering" and "Baptism of the Holy Spirit". I share what the Lord is doing for me where given, when opportunities arise. When things at home come together a bit more, I will join in the fight on facebook again. Sorry for the absence currently but things are getting done here at home and the Lord knows how to prioritze. Michael Preston, it is great to see you have joined the way you have.

Also I have this idea below and I am looking forward to hearing if you think it an idea worthy of persuing. It is something I have thought of before to use between Ronnie and myself for translation projects but now I envision it be used for all of the things going on within the Body of the Lord at TPOT and Harvest Haven.

Is anyone familiar with Trello.com?
It's a great interactive organising tool to work more collaboratively. I use it at work to organise tasks and to create an overview of all the projects going on and where they're at and what which person is working on and it is inspiring and works very well. If we were to start using it, I can see it benefit each individually and also the Body as a whole.
We all could see what projects are going on, who is involved, how far they have evolved, what needs to be done next, it's easy to notify others to get a task assigned on a specific project, etc. It's an app so also great for on the go. The Body working in unity together, digitally :-), very well connected and all parts aware of eachother. What do you think?

I would need everyones e-mail adresses and everyone will have to set up a free account and give me the usernames. I could start setting it up and more projects can basically added soon we will have a complete overview of what is happening with every single project someone is working on. Notifying eachther on what needs to be done or could be done as a next step on any given project or task.
What about securtiy? There is a pro version with more protection and there might be a way to work form a server, but I'm not sure. Ronnie, what do you think?

If there are other things I can be of help with, let me know.

Lord, Your will be done!

Victor and all. I would dearly love to help-out in any way I can. That said, I am reluctant to even think of myself as part of this body, TPOT (Christ’s Body) I read almost every day at TPOT and from time to time I partake in the forum. I think that makes me more of an observer than a member. I know I could be doing better. The Lord has blessed me with artistic skills. I love to draw and paint, mostly watercolours. I love working with wood and I am in the process of looking for violin making classes in my area. I also like music. I play a little bit on the guitar but would not be as good as Victor. I own a ‘two row button accordion’ but I am still very much in the learner category there. I am thinking of adding some background accordion music to some of the songs the Lord has given Victor. I will let you know how I get on. I love writing, particularly on spiritual matters. My dad says I’m a jack of many trades but ‘sadly’ a master of none.

I am not sure if the Lord is prompting me or not, but I have a desire to share the things I have learnt here at TPOT with past acquaintances, mostly those promoting the catholic church. Would this be in line with what the Lord is looking? I have done some Blogging online in the past, promoting the catholic church, all of which I have taken down. I would love to rectify that, if possible, by blogging about TPOT and spreading the truth out to the blogosphere.

Desire to be in, Brian.

Hi Sabine, I've not heard of Trello, but we are currently using a task management app called Asana which does help. Trello may be more intuitive or offer useful features - I'll check it out. If Trello is a better fit, we can switch before we get more involved. And yes, with additional people helping, we need administration and organization. I'll be in touch.

Hi Victor, and others:

I am in. Presently I have been given to answer some people on Facebook posts and TPOT articles. I have also talked with Ronnie about other projects that I may be able to help out in the future with ThePathofTruth and Harvest Haven.

I really to design and create. I have experience in video editing, 3D modeling, website design, and woodworking. Recently, I have also been learning how to cook and garden, which has been a blessing. I enjoy what the Lord has given me to do so far.

Regarding Trello, its worth a look. Michael and I have used it for years. It is incredibly simple to use (we use the free version, which is great). We like how you can assign certain people to jobs, add checklists, due dates, and colorful tags to see the status of a job. If you have Google+/Gmail, you can just sign in without making a separate account. Trello doesn't spam your email too, which is nice. They also have mobile apps for your phone to get notifications if you want that functionality as well.

Post by Joseph Harris »

Good Day, Victor,
 
Your call to “Godly Active Duty” has not gone unnoticed. My delay was not to respond impromptu without giving some thought and possible direction. There is no question, I’m in agreement with what was coming came forth from your spirit. My only fear (reverential) is that I’m deemed a wasted vessel to be disposed of by The LORD, because I wasn’t a “focused soldier” at all times, fit for His use.   
 
As I mentioned back in August 2017(see correspondence below), my desire to be used as The LORD directs through His leadership in this assembly.
 
My biggest challenge/hindrance now is finding that inroad(breaking the ice conversation) attempting to share His Truth I’ve learned here. My desire by His grace is taking His Truth that I’ve learned here and walking it out as a living epistle. I’ve noticed and others have seen the slow yet methodical change that’s taken place in my life. Although, the change has not been radical enough in me that It’s caused others to inquire or have interest asking Joseph what you have, I desperately need. It apparent I’m being honored with a natural  respect from those connected to me like a friend, neighbor, father, grandfather noticeable appreciation! The sons of God utmost desire is for others to reverence His Spirit that resides in them. An unspoken conviction toward others that the LORD is present and all anti-Godly behaviors and activities must cease immediately.    
 
When the LORD’s Spirit fell on those in the upper room; there was a radical change. Some described these men as unlearned yet were proclaiming truths not coming from this earthly realm. That power from on High infused those living in earthen vessels in such a way they were radically transformed forever!  
     
When I walked in those religious circles, I had no reservations asking a person if they were saved and if they acknowledged they weren’t; that was my entrance to begin a dialogue with the intent of having that individual make a verbal decision to turn from a life of sin unto the living God right then and there. Of course, emphasizing and assuring being heaven bound and no more being eternally separated from God was the underlining tactic. My desire was not to lead anyone to any specific religious organization(thank The LORD), but for that soul to experience a personal encounter with God. Of course, I know better now(reconciliation of all things and so many other revelations downloaded)no eternal fire and brimstone as Revelation 14:10 describes awaiting any soul.  I even had hundreds of printed well scripted professional appealing letters distributing to all I came in contact with proclaiming “get right with God now!”  Now that I’m continuing to learn just the opposite, I find myself watching my words and not say anything that comes to mind, not that I’m fearful but I want them seasoned with His Truth when spoken.  Especially discovering the LORD has to prepare ones heart to receive in His timing by revelation. No brow beating into submission or being argumentative; it’s never been effective attempting to change mankind mindset throughout the ages. Those who are connected with me family and  friends observe my desire to observe the Sabbath; not by legalistic standards that I once learned as a Seventh Day Adventist, as well as not participating in annual celebrations that I once enjoyed.
 
My desire is to be tenderhearted and long suffering towards my family and friends who’ve not been so graced as I have. I can only assume, The Lord taught those that were in His circle of influence many life lessons or possible encounters that were not recorded in the scriptures.
 
I’m guessing The Lord taught those that were in His circle of influence many life lessons or possibly encounters that were not recorded in the scriptures. Victor, when The LORD calls us to assemble via teleconferences, would you consider having specific teachings to equipping us to be productive moving in His power? One example: how to share His Good News His way and not the religious way many of us were and still are accustomed to? Simon had mentioned during one of the bible readings: How to know assuredly, The LORD is leading in a specific direction and it’s not just one’s mind guiding by natural instinct. I would be greatly encouraged to know how to be led sharing His Truth with a specific person(s) because their heart has been prepared to receive by Him at a specific moment in time.         
 
In my brief BIO, I mentioned my interest and the cares of this world is slowly coming to naught. I don’t own a home or property not even my own personal automobile. The cares of not having to attend to those matters gives me a sense of freedom. Where I’m now in my life with whatever time He affords me, I must be about My Father’s business. I mentioned I’m having some issues with my gait/walking, so I’m thankful I was offered the opportunity to earn an honest wage working from home. Time saved on commuting to and from a job(what a blessing) this time could be redeemed assisting where needed.
 
The only tangible skillset that comes to mind is several of my co-workers have informed me I have a radio voice and should consider doing voice overs. How that fits into TPOT scheme of things, only the LORD knows. Are you aware of any tutorials that you, Ronnie or others could advise that could help enhance our skill level to assist the ministry where needed?  
 
Victor, I can’t pinpoint where I can help the ministry. I’m advising you and the leadership via this communication, I’m onboard.
 
I will continue to seek the LORD as you asked all to do to find what’s being required of me. My prayer is that I was able to effectively communicate where I am with all.
 
- Joseph

Hi, Joseph! I’m passing your letter on to others here, being sure you won’t
mind at all given the spirit and substance of it. I pass it on in case
there’s anything they may have to offer you.

I wouldn’t worry about being present at the birthday celebration though not
an active participant or appearing like you’re in agreement with it. After
all, they do it in ignorance as most, but it could offer you the
opportunity to share what the Lord’s teaching you. Of course, if they’re
not open to the Truth, which seems to be the case, you’ll certainly have
conflict as the Lord promised or warned. No problem; He died in HIS
Testimony for our sakes (and theirs) so no wonder we should suffer with
Him. Not saying you should or shouldn’t go; seek the Lord in all these
matters.

I do appreciate your offer of help, Joseph; there’s much we can do. Ronnie
can use the reins he holds at TPOT and direct you to some fruitful labor
for the Lord. Thank you.

And guys, if you think it would be of value to post this at the Forum and
you all agree, go for it.

A solemn reminder: We must never allow work for the Lord to displace or
compete with our love for Him.

Revelation 2:1-5 MKJV
(1) To the angel of the church of Ephesus write: He who holds the seven
stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden
lampstands, says these things.
(2) I know your works and your labor and your patience, and how you cannot
bear those who are evil. And you tried those pretending to be apostles, and
are not, and have found them liars.
(3) And you have borne, and have patience, and for My Name's sake you have
labored and have not fainted.
(4) But I have against you that you left your first love.
(5) Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the
first works, or else I will come to you quickly and will remove your
lampstand out of its place unless you repent.

Good Day, Victor!

Firstly, please accept my apology if I was supposed to reply to your latest
inquiry. It’s evident it wasn’t life or death that I needed clarification.
Kind of one of those concerns requiring no need to spend precious time
researching or explaining.

I did want to ask if possibly during a future telex-Sabbath conference, if
you or permission granted to any Elder that might want to give all a report
from the Lord on how those who are connected here are measuring up. Also
giving practical examples of where we should be vigilant and discern where
our adversary has fortified strongholds. What strategies has the Lord given
you to share with all?

And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain
upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. Habakkuk 2:2(AKJV)

If you need to use me as an example to rebuke where we are missing the mark
or being slothful of His high calling requirement, I will certainly will
humble myself and receive your rebuke.. Particularly in reference to our
faithfulness to what He is doing here. I hear instructions given to others
concerning possible ineptness or lack of zeal for what the Lord is doing
here, taking unauthorized leave of absences, etc.

And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house
hath eaten me up. John 2:17(KJV)

I personally want to keep pace with others and never to be found slothful
or the weakest “link in the chain” among us. As stated in my condensed BIO
and brief testimony, I’m here for the long haul as long as the Lord says
so! Just because I’m not bombarding you with questions or issues that I
might be facing, it’s certainly not due to me wanting to be aloof or
disengaged. Those of us who’ve been led here must be sensitive and
respectful of your personal time and not infringe or inundate you with
unimportant or mundane matters at inopportune times. I haven’t been given
carte blanche to approach you in like manner as some may feel privileged to
do so(only out of respect for the position The Lord has placed you).

I’m not sure if my skillset will be of any technical help, although if
needed I will assist where my gifting’s allow. If I’ve been given only one
talent I don’t to be found guilty of…Matthew 25:14-30(KJV). I currently
have Sundays and Mondays as my off days during this summer bid.

As a good soldier of Christ Jesus you must endure your share of suffering.
Soldiers on duty are not preoccupied with other activities.. They try only
to please their commanding officer. 2Timothy 2:3-4 (CEV)

Thank you Victor for being an example for many, desiring by His grace to
please The Lord in all things.

- Joseph

I’m in. Not sure what skills I have to offer, I am however happy to enquire and wait to hear from God on how I can help.
