Dear Body, September 24, 2007
We send you greetings from the far north country. Truly fall is in the air. We are beginning to witness the changing of the leaves. The reds, the golds, and the rust colors are beginning to show. In reality these are the true colors of the leaves. All summer these leaves have been clothed in chlorophyl, but as the fall approaches the leaves are losing their green, and God is showing us their true color. Each leaf is a glory to the God that created them. When the covering is gone, we can clearly see what God has created.
Men are like the leaves. When inclement weather comes upon man, he begins to show his true colors. But man's true colors do not always bring glory to God. God lets us see how He sees man, and that is not always pretty. Sometimes what we see is downright ugly. But thanks be to God, He can change man's black heart and make him a new creation, so he can shine like the light in the firmament and bring glory to His Creator. In his letter to the Ephesians, Paul informs us:
"Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." Ephesians 6:13
We are to take on the whole armor of God. Why? We are to do this so we may withstand in the evil day. The word withstand means "to resist, to stand against, to oppose." We truly live in the evil day. Many things are coming against God's people. The government has legislated against everything we as Christians stand for. Most of the church system has capitulated to government control. They fear the ACLU more than they fear the God they are supposed to be serving. They talk more about the devil, then they do about the overcoming power of God in our lives. Somehow the church system has forgotten the Lord's words in I John 4:4, "Greater is he that is in thee, then he that is in the world."
Many in the church system have forgotten that to withstand the evil day, we must have our loins girt about with truth. We must have on our breastplate of righteousness. We must have our feet prepared and shod with the gospel of peace. We must be carrying our shield of faith in our God. Our head must be covered with salvation, and we must have the sword of the Spirit in our hand. We must be in all preparedness with these if we are going to be able to withstand the evil day in which we live.
The news from the far north country is that God is blessing abundantly. The mailing list is growing, and we are getting a good response from the vital words we are privileged to send to the body of Christ. We were out of many of our books. Many of these we have already reprinted.
We were also out of four of our full size books, and we are in the process of getting these printed and ready for mailing. Please note we have changed the format of these full size books to an 8 ½ x 11 spiral bound format. These are great for study. At present we have reprinted "Beyond the Cloven Tongues" and "Beyond the Feast of Tabernacles."
"Beyond the Cloven Tongues" is a study on what is next after we receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Many believe they have arrived when they receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. This book explains what is next.
"Beyond the Feast of Tabernacles" explains the feasts of Israel, including the Feast of Tabernacles that is for God's end time true church, His ekklesia, His anointed ones.
We know God is speaking to His end time people. We would like to hear what God is speaking to you. We have also started "The Poets Corner." If you would like to share your poetry, we would be happy put it out in our mailings. Of course we give full credit to those God has blessed with His poetry.
If the Vital Words have helped your Spiritual walk, your Spiritual growth, or your Spiritual understanding of the Word of God, drop us a line and let us know. We would love to hear from you.
As always in Christ,
