 Saint Patrick was an evangelical preacher and is often said to be a man of One Book! He never appeals to the authority of any creed, ecclesiastical leader or council, but in his writings, few as they are, he quotes from 113 scriptures. It has been commented that from his constant emphasis on the Bible, that Patrick sounded like a 5th century Billy Graham, “ The Bible says, the Bible says.”

It is interesting to note here that Billy Graham is of Scotch Irish descent and his ancestors came from County Down and County Antrim in Northern Ireland where Patrick built his first church.

Have You Left Your First Love?


  Dear Child,

 It is a higher calling to minister unto to me ! than to minister unto the world! It requires much more dedication, more sacrifice and more separation from the world. You must leave the ¹Outer Court to minister to me, at the ³Candlestick the place of anointing, at the ³Table of Shewbread the place of fellowship with me, and at the ³Golden Altar the place to offer your sacrifice of praise!

Then when you leave the ²Holy Place to be a witness in the ¹Outer Court, you take with you my anointing, my fellowship and the fragrance of your sacrifice of praise!

You are now redeeming your time by spending it with me, because now your ministry to the world will be so much more fruitful. You know my heart by fellowshipping with me, and are now working in the world where you see me working. Be the hands and feet of my workings. Working in the world without knowing where I am working is working in the flesh and will cause sweat and will not bear fruit that is everlasting. Sow seed only where you see me plow the ground  and then it will take root and grow.

The more time you spend with me in secret, the more the anointing, discernment of my will and fragrance there will be from your life! Many work in the ¹Outer Court to be seen of man and for the praise of man, instead of just to please me. When the praise of man and approval of man doesn’t come, they become burned out, but they that wait upon and serve me and do it as only unto me, shall renew their strength, for their joy is full, because they rejoice in pleasing me.

Burn out also comes where man, not discerning my heart for they haven’t spent time with me, try to sow seed  where I have not plowed and prepared hearts, by drawing them unto me! Child, know my heart, work only where I am working, work only the fields I send you to.

                                                                  Thus Saith Papa

¹The Outer Court of the Tabernacle is a type of the world where we minister to others.

²The Holy Place is a type of the church where we minister to the Lord.

³The Candlestick, Table of Shewbread and Altar of Incense were the pieces of furniture in the Holy Place where the believer ministers unto the Lord.

Col. 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

Eph. 6:6-7  Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

CHALLENGE: If all our labor is out of a desire to please God who is our Audience of One, that desire will be the guard of the motivation of our hearts. Take a moment to reflect on the source of your motivation.

How Awesome!

On our two hour ride down to Philadelphia today for a checkup with my cardiac surgeon we drove through some beautiful winter scenery. The dark dreary winter suddenly became a sunny winter wonderland with boughs hanging low laden with fresh fallen snow against a backdrop of clear blue skies. How awesome!

It was a window to my soul from my heavenly Papa where He had taken my dark dreary winter of years of heart problems, surgeries and stroke to a sunny day when the boughs of my life would be laden with blessings against the backdrop of a total clean bill of health from the surgeon today.

I can look back on those days praising God for, as Andre Crouch penned “If I never had my problems I would never know what faith in God could do.” How awesome!

Only the Potter Knows the Purpose of His Creation


Dear Child,

Creation has no choice but to fulfill its purpose and be what it was created for. 

Man was given a choice, a free will and a creative mind to fulfill My purpose or create his own.

All I ask of you is that you be what you were created to be.

You can try to do that which you weren’t created to do.

But you can never be what you weren’t created to be, no matter how you struggle!

                                            Thus saith Papa

Isa 64:8  But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

Eph 5:17  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

                   Everything has a purpose

In order to know the purpose of a thing you do not ask the thing

You ask the creator of the thing

Only the creator knows the purpose of the thing he created

When the purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable!

      Challenge: If you do not know the purpose of your being, ask the Potter?

                                  Choose to fulfill His purpose by being who He created you to be.
