THE OPENING ACT

stageYOU

 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”  Matt 5:14

When I was out for a run yesterday, the LORD spoke these words to me, “YOU ARE NOT AN OPENING ACT, YOU ARE THE HEADLINER”

I chuckled and agreed but as I continued on my way, I realized that the LORD was not specifically referring to me but to HIS people.

Are you an opening act? No, dear lovely, you are not an opening act, but rather, you are the headliner with a limited amount of time to dazzle the world with your gifts & talents before you return to the earth.

“All go to one place: all are from the dust, and all return to dust” Ecclesiastes 3:20

Dear shiny thing, the world awaits your arrival and as the LORD puts it, “You are the light of the world” and the world needs your light, not the other way around!

I wrote a song (off of our first CD) titled, “A SONG UNSUNG” and if I can find a download, I’ll come back and post it here, either way, the song is about my biggest fear and that is squandering the relevance of time and talents. As you, I’ve only been given a short amount of time to achieve the things that are my purpose, and to be frank, I need several more lives in order to accomplish all that I enjoy, but, as I press forward towards the mark of my high calling, the things that truly make me happy move up to the front, and the other things find their place behind those.  If I have the time left, I will do a variety of things, but, if I don’t, I will do what I am created to do, called to do, asked to do, blessed to do, and honored to do..Will you?

We are each a facet of GOD’S Glory (and sense of humor), and we are only given a moment in time before we return to our creator – The choice is up to you what you will do with your remaining days but I hope and pray it is in line with your FATHER’S brilliant design:

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

Are we all prophets? No, but we are all a unique expression of our CREATOR’S  character, and therefore, HE speaks through the work of our hands. So, go proclaim the greatness of GREAT GOD JEHOVAH and conquer your land. The clock ticks, and time moves forward whether you participate or not.

I used to think that I was necessary to the House of David and the LORD’S PLAN, and would threaten HIM that I was giving up my calling when I was upset about certain injustices, but as I matured, I came to know that while it saddens our FATHER when HIS kids accept less than HIS best, there’s always a remnant willing and waiting.

“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” 1 Corinthians 13:11

I want mine, and I want you to have yours, so man up, get up, wipe off, and march on, because your audience awaits ♛

HAPPY EARTH DAY

8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. 11 Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? 12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh. 13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth.  James 3:8-14

I sat down to write/right about Earth Day 2018 but instead the Holy Spirit directed me to address something else..

We’re all on a journey; some, are nearing the end, other’s, just beginning, and I’m not referring to life & death (although sometimes it feels like death), but what I am referring to is the journey that leads to the door where destiny and preparation intersect, and your, “Now”, begins. I like to refer to it as, “Your visitation”.

First of all, I will say that I understand, sometimes a little boasting seems necessary and maybe even fitting. After all, who but you knows how much you have endured to be where you are at this moment?!  BUT, on your way to your journey’s end, keep your tongue quiet because loose lips bring destruction to the truth, which of itself, should be spoken sparingly.

A talebearer reveals secrets, but he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter. Proverbs 11:13

Warrior, the narrow path is a hard passage at times, but will ultimately produce all you have believed for: The wide way becomes bottle-necked at any time and you have no way out but to endure its troubles. I’m going to write an entire teaching on this subject because the law of reciprocity is real, and no amount of begging, crying, or demanding, will cut short its sentence.

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.” Matthew 7:13

I know it’s hard to watch the unrighteous prosper when you have done all to stand on a promise yet (but about) to be fulfilled. I get it! Even more difficult is trying to explain why you are where you are, and not where some suppose you should be. If you listen to the flesh, it will give way to self-doubt, which brings all kinds of thoughts, which  in turn, encourages the mouth to speak, which may destroy all that you have so diligently endured. It is possible to fail, even now.

YOU CHOOSE: You may trust in the flesh, which agitates one’s sense of right or wrong, or, you can trust by faith, which you know, never forsakes.

“For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.” Galatians 5:17

Again, I say, on your way to the journey’s end, keep your tongue quiet; quarantine it if you must    YOU’RE ALMOST THERE…Happy Earth Day lovelies!

Love, Destiny /C Y U

SOCIAL MEDIA 2018

CYU-A-Time-Coming-1

Dear warrior,
We would like to remind you that there is a time coming when those who control social media will no longer “tolerate” your Christian liberties. “Net Neutrality” is a term loosely used these days, but, as has been foretold, there is a real battle; one that goes much deeper than ‘clever phraseology’.

In a society where we have become dependent on social media for news, encouragement, entertainment, collaboration, and communication, it is best to be prepared for the changes that ARE forthcoming. In the coming days, maybe soon, maybe later, these social media outlets will be scrutinizing various organizations for posts that are deemed, “Intolerant” – The result being the deletion of posts and/or pages. In other words, one day you may wake to find that your favorite ministries and news outlets are no longer available.

As for CYU and the coming year, we will be actively posting here on our website blog and we invite you to join us for updates and other resources.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” 2  Timothy 4:3-4

Be BOLD for Jesus!

ROLL AWAY THE STONE

He is Risen

Hi warriors,
I was hoping to upload a video for you from a musical drama we wrote and produced for Easter a few years ago, titled, “ROLL AWAY THE STONE” – Unfortunately, I can’t find it but I’ll post some of the lyrics for you here. How glorious is it that the message of the Cross never needs embellishing, and never loses its power?! Our LORD JESUS conquered death, hell, and the grave so that all who would believe in HIM would have eternal life; it’s for you, for me, and for those yet to come.  Yes, indeed, roll away that stone because JESUS isn’t in there!

Hallelujah!! ✞

I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.” Revelation 1:18

Have a beautiful celebration 
Love, Rev & Destiny / CYU
