The layers of the onion… have a core…

this is in no particular order…

i apply the blood of Jesus over my heart…  my soul and my spirit… and release Your anointing over this reading Father God… Jesus have Your way with me…

Why is it when darkness closes in… a son of God doesn’t tremble… because he has met his Father in Heaven… his Saviour and the Spirit that lives within him is his Strength and his hope… the sons Life within him is Jesus.

which is the whole purpose of Jesus dying upon the Cross for All the world… and on that day Jesus released the Ghost… the Holy Ghost…

Philippians 4:13

13    i can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

being unshakable has nothing to do with me…  i didn’t choose Jesus… He states clear in His Word… He chose me… i didn’t First love Jesus He first Loved and loves me…

John 15:16

16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in My name, he may give it you.

let us not be the fig tree in season…

Being a soldier for so many years… i faced some things…  out of total ignorance cared not that i could die… in Iraq i actually welcomed it… due to how disappointed i was in life and the world… just growing up and seeing the root of selfcenteredness, but at the same time struggling with my own selfishness…

this all changed in one day…

the Living Word lives in me… and this still today blows my mind… He is so real… im in Love with Jesus and His Holy Spirit who is He…

but remember God placed His Spirit in me at birth… then touched me at 8 in a Pentecostal African American revival tent in east Oregon… it was a hundred dollar bill in my dads hand… i asked? What is that for… dad said it’s an offering for your baptism of the Holy Spirit… just like a child would do… i asked? Does it cost a hundred bucks?  dad smiled, laughed a bit and said no… it’s a free gift, but i hope this is enough because it was his last hundred… all he had

what an amazing time that was… my dad a Pentecostal preacher… with a 3rd grade education planted something like 67 churches (please don’t hold me to that number)…  God said Go and dad just went… let’s just say for the kids it was a bit inconvenient… sometimes leaving everything for the next pastor of that church… house and all that was in it…  my dads name is billy jack burt… green eyed irish man… sure, if you looked his name up… you’ll find nothing because?  All glory went to Christ…

image is so big Today?  so many ask… where is your church?  Where did you get ordained…  is that what was asked of the apostle Paul? Not according to the Word… who’s image is important… Romans 8:29… we reflect Christ.  and sure this takes time and can become a long process.

And I went up by revelation (Paul says), and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.

If you have the Holy Ghost and Fire… trust me… that’s more then enough…

i remember this story… short version.

my dad had started a new church… one day or night Holy Spirit spoke to dad and said… a man in a white Cadillac will walk up to you wearing a certain type of shirt… you are to hand him the keys to this church and go to… and i don’t remember the town right now that he was to go to.  but that’s not the point? Holy Spirit was clear… billy you are to leave and start another church…  so many experiences to list… but what a blessing it is… to receive 55 years of prayer and then line those up with my forefathers… prayers are forever…

Revelation 8:4

“And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.”

Jesus walked with me… and i had no clue… had no clue after that night, Jesus continued to walk beside me…

in that tent… when all the elders of that revival laid hands upon me… i had no idea what happen… i woke up on the floor weeping and crying… my face covered with all that had ran from my nose…  i thought, what happen? What an experience… blacked out and shaking…

The mountains quake at Him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at His presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. Nahum 1:5

 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke. Psalm 104:32 

 He stood, and measured the earth: He beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: His ways are everlasting. Habakkuk 3:6

 O my Father is Almighty… He fills His children with Power from upon High… and Truth…  our strength is in our Joy within Him… abiding and living in Jesus Christ… 

 Folks, Father can shake some flesh on some skinny bones if He desires to…

i was having conversation with a young man who claimed to be an x minister… not sure what an x-minister is (wounded or cut away from the vine)  this young man is now studying what he believes is truth… and into something called spiritual awakening… or as many wiccans would call… ancient or sacred knowledge… i have prayed for and spoke to wiccans and they truly believe there is a white and dark path… ??? (p.s…. lots of wiccans go to church)

white and dark path??? not true? only one path is the true way… Jesus Christ… is the Way and His blood and His Cross… walk as HE Walked… as it is written… First of all… to believe… you must be touched by your Creator… people cannot just pick up the bible and believe… they have to be called and then answer… answer the call… answer the call by grace… through faith to faith… believing and trusting who God says He is and who He reveals Himself to be… our Father… Savior… Redeemer… our Lover of our Soul… our All and All… for some this is instant… like me… for some their measure of faith and grace are but a small portion…

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath DEALT (distributed upon men) to every man the measure of faith.

And also it is written: that grace is distributed… Not equally:

But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.

But Yes we are all One in Christ… as it is written: if one suffers we ALL suffer, but if one rejoices we all rejoice… amen

i was told by the Holy Spirit to go to this booth during the local fair here in Lebanon… my baby daughter was helping with the cheer booth…

my wife and i came over to this booth… and this young lady was selling items of the occult… divination… the spirit from acts which Holy Spirit made clear to Paul the apostle (Acts 16:16 )…  after asking her if she would allow us to bless her… she said sure… if I may bless you?  okay… im like?  Holy Spirit please cover us… as I said that both my wife and i could feel the Fire of God raining softly upon our spirit… amazing truth…

i remember when i first felt this… i called my mom and asked her? she’s what some would call a Holy roller… if you prefer labels… labels in these times will either burn off or fall off…

im like mom… ive been up for the last few nights on FIRE… like burning so hot inside that it was just uncomfortable… i couldn’t sleep but here and there for a few hours or so… His Presence was so heavy on me… like a liquid blanket… this lasted for a few days… seemed like 7 or so?

now hold on for one second?  John the Baptist was clear when he said…

“As for me (John), i baptize you with water for repentance, but He (Jesus Christ the Holy Ghost) who is coming after me is mightier than i, and i am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and Fire.”

–Small disclaimer:  church is not boring… i never knew most of this existed… an folks we are the church… the Body… US… the Temple of the Holy Spirit…  church is Not a building… thats were we assemble… ministry in these days… IS NOT Boring… folks the devil is trying to take all the ground he can… we as the church are called to take dominion and authority as Christs ambassadors… (2 Corinthians 5:20)

What stops him… the devil? A man on Fire… filled with Holy Fire… becoming Holy because God is making him that way by His Holy Spirit… and when the devil comes because he does…  resist the devil means he comes… if the enemy just sees a swept empty house which happens at repentance but we must press forward to a  total infilling of Fathers Spirit… when totally surrendered and full of the Holy Ghost… the enemy sees the Living and breathing All consuming Holy Fire dwelling within a clay vessel that is filled with the 7 Spirits of God…

Why do you think the Word states…

Matthew 12:43-45

43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself –SEVEN– other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

Why 7?  Because we must be filled with God… His Spirit and His Word… daily… daily bread…Isaiah 11:2-3

1 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
    2 the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, 3
    4 the Spirit of counsel and of might, 5
    6 the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord— 7 Spirits of God… the 7 Lampstands
 and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.

we have the same Holy Spirit Jesus had and has folks… He is Jesus…

the devil is not a creator… he is defeated and all power is in the Hands of Jesus…

the devil is a creation… the devil is a imitator…

13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. 2 Corinthians 11

Satan sees that he distracts people in the world… and the 7 Spirits God wants to place in you are in Isaiah 11:2-3… Revelation 1:4 … Revelation 3:1 – And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Revelation 4:5 – And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

Revelation 5:6 —

So back to the story of this young red headed lady… selling divination… charms and all other kinds of things not of God… here at the fair right beside the cheer booth of LHS…

Did you know there is a college for witchcraft here in Oregon… now i don’t remember what she called it, but it is a 4 year degree?  Long story short… we find out her dad is a Pentecostal preacher and she believes that God is obtainable in more than one way… that Jesus isn’t the Truth… Way and the Life…

now im not saying her dad was or is deceived, but here is a young lady… her dad knows the truth, but she is in full rebellion… nature of the first Adam.  and i know in my spirit her dad prays for her all the time… sure of it!

im here to say Jesus is the Only Way to Heaven…

Here is OSU religious studies… just a small takeaway from their explanation off their website…

Religious Studies at OSU is an inter-disciplinary field that combines history, philosophy, anthropology, ethics, textual analysis, art, literature and film to examine the ways that humans have described and acted in response to that which they have called divine, both in civilizations long past and among peoples and nations around the world in the present moment.   A major in Religious Studies will expose you to some of the most profound and beautiful creations of the human imagination, give you expertise in critical reasoning and close engagement with texts and ideas, give you skills to navigate the cultural complexity of our diverse society, and prepare you to be a participatory citizen of our interconnected global environment.

Needles to say… Today we are exposed to a twisted truth… that’s what the devil has attempted to do, but Father is Sovereign and is working within His people…

The Spirit of Truth was released at the day of Pentecost… for those who truly wait upon the Lord…  Pentecost is not a one day event… there is a fountain flowing from Heaven…  His Blood… this River flows from Heaven and is eternal…  Life flows…  eternity runs right beside us… this time we are in… is plugged in… temporary…

John 16:13-15

13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will –guide—you– into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come.  (show you the future) (divine mysteries—secrets–) (1 cor 14:2)

14 He shall glorify Me (Holy Spirit, reveals Jesus and Jesus reveals the Father): for He shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

This is Amazing…

Well… i witnessed to this young deceived lady and made it clear that Jesus is the Only way, but still i was not rude to her or ugly… she allowed us to pray for her… we blessed her and sometimes i still pray for her soul and for the veil to be pulled off….  John 6:44 is clear that no one comes to Jesus unless Father draws them…

this is the stuff king solomon was told to not be a part of… he didn’t listen to Father God and married into this and with all the wisdom given him… Solomon still… worshiped false gods…

(Kabbalah (Hebrew: קַבָּלָה‎‎, literally “receiving/tradition”) is an esoteric method, discipline, and school of thought that originated in Judaism. A traditional Kabbalist in Judaism is called a Mekubbal (Hebrew: מְקוּבָּל‎‎).

Let us not ever be against the Jewish people… they are Gods Chosen people…  we always bless and not curse… as it is written in 1 Peter.

For when Solomon was old, his wives turned his heart away after other gods; and his heart was not wholly devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been. 1 Kings 11:4

For through a mans heart he believes… we cannot understand these things with our carnal mind…  by faith… by impartation of His Holy Spirit… through the blood of Jesus and hearing the voice of our Father God.

 Father i ask in the precious Name of Jesus Christ;

 My prayer Today… is that the Fire of Almighty God would fall upon the life of all those who read this letter and that they would lay their lives down for the one who died for them and was resurrected from the grave… and is Now standing upon the Right Hand of God…

 Jesus Christ of Nazareth…

 WHOSOEVER is you…  cry out to Him…

Romans 10:13

13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved… (sozo…made whole… complete)

i cried for 11.5 months and He came… you will know when this happens…  never give up.. don’t faint… don’t quit… whosoever calls

In my distress i called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, And my cry for help before Him came into His ears.

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Not that i have already obtained this or am already perfect, but i press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me His own.

all glory to my Father in Heaven…
