    Are you a prophet or one who operates in the prophetic gifts?

    One of the identifying signs that one is a prophet from one who is gifted in the prophetic is to the Prophet everything in his life had prophetic meaning.

    A prophet must operate his/her life as a prophetic knower...

    The 21st Century Prophet must not stop at the obvious.

    Perfect Interpretation

    Perfect Interpretation – The goal in understanding or having perfect interpretation is not to be perfect but to properly and accurately understand what is being conveyed.

    The arena where most prophetic people err in is their interpretation of what s being conveyed or revealed to hem or by what is conveyed or is being revealed by them.

    Perfect Interpretation speaks to the Holy Spirits intrinsic nature to reveal truth.

    John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

    John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

    John 16:13 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.

    Allochthonous
    -To be found formed in a region it did originate from.

    Many of us are being developed and sent out into regions, arenas, atmospheres and environment socially and virtually that are completely unfamiliar to us.

    We are being launched or either have been launched into new venue, new venture that are seemingly strange to us....

    New authors, new preaching stiles, new dimension of church and ministry...

    For some we have literally broken away - that breaking away has coat us; relationships, regional access and personal possessions, causing us to be different for the rest.....

    But we often feel alienated and there is a stark difference between us and what we see around us.

    Hence the term allochthonous..

    We have been separated and called apart for a Divine purpose...

    OUR WAY OF THINKING MUST BE ADJUSTED TO FIT THE DAY, THE TIMES WE ARE CALLED TO.

    We must embrace the place The Lord has set us in. We must move forward.

    How to handle a Shift


    In the natural when handling a straight drive car, it's the vibration and sound and feel that are indications you need to shift into another gear. I believe the same spiritually. You must listen for the sounds in the present atmosphere to hear a time to shift indication. You can hear it in the speech of others, you can hear the sounds of another place calling you to it, you can hear the static of where you are, etc.... You can feel a shift. You can feel it in the atmosphere, in your spirit, in your mind. The vibration may feel like an annoyance, an excitement a tremble. It may be causing you to be annoyed and if you're not carful it can become violent and deadly. You can eventually loose the ability to shift if you ignore the sounds and vibrations too long, that even when you want to shift the ability to do so is not present.

    "Your response" - (NOUN) a person, place or thing... Your response is an entity that has characteristics that are a result of where it comes from.

    1. Response is an answer or reply, as in words or in some action

    2. Any behavior of a living organism that results from an external or internal stimulus.

    3. A verse, sentence, phrase, or word said or sung by the choir or congregation in reply to the officiant.

    He ask for a response based on what He knows, not what you think you know. - that's why what we do should be a "RE"-SPONSE; We bring forth what He Himself has already conceived.

    RE= Meaning “again” or “again and again” to indicate repetition,

    OR with the alternate meaning “back” or “backward” to indicate a withdrawal or backward motion: regenerate (to effect a complete moral reform in)

    PMS


    Here is my foundational scripture.

    3rd John 1:2 
    From the Amplified Bible

    Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and that your body may keep well, even as I know your soul keeps well and prospers.

    PMS

    Pre Menstrual Syndrome

    Only affects women of Child bearing age...

    The rest of us have to deal with the Post Menstrual Syndrome known as the change or menopause.

    But......

    Pre Menstrual Syndrome 
    PMS itself can be prevented, we'll cover that at the end. However today we are going to focus on dealing with PMS by Pampering My Spirit

    What do you think the symptoms of PMS are:
    Feeling Stressed
    Bloating
    Breast tenderness
    Weight gain
    Aggression
    Trouble concentrating
    Headaches/backaches
    Food cravings/overeating
    Fatigue
    Tearfulness
    Irritability
    Anxiety
    Mood swings and/or depression

    Almost 90% of menstruating women experience one or some of these symptoms related to their period monthly.

    Some of the things that bring relief from Pre Menstrual Syndrome are the very thing we should be doing to Pamper our Spirit.


    Exercise, Adequate rest, Hydration can help a woman better manage PMS symptoms.

    Today we are pamper a portion of your physical body that gets overlook like most people neglect or overlook their spirits.

    Our feet like our souls carries us everywhere. Over the rough places in life....

    The high places

    The low places

    But often our feet bare the brunt of our fatigue

    Toxins are released from the body through our feet.

    The feet are often the overlooked part of the body when it comes to showering and bathing.

    But in spiritual matters we want to prepare the foundation which is represneted by the feet. The analogy is clear.  We must pamper, comfort and bring proper attention to even the lowest part of our spirit and the Body of Christ.

    Body Communication

    We must be able to communicate, interact and flow with one another if we are going to be effective in ministry.

    Bad body language conveys a bad message.

     

    You need to adress the following:
    How you respond when you get hit or embarrassed?

    Types of communication:
    What you're saying when you're saying nothing?
    Can you Stand up or by what you say in private?

    Dealing with Grief


    There is no right or wrong way to deal with grief. It is important to realize and accept that each one deals with grief in his or her own way...

    Your way is not better or appropriate than another's. This is important to remember as we must refrain from judging each other's actions to draw conclusions.

    I want to share I few things that help me and I believe will help each of us deal with this very difficult time now.

    Bereavement vs Grief

    Grief is keen mental suffering or distress over affliction or loss. It is sharp sorrow or painful regret.
    A heightened status of distress...

    Bereavement is a period of mourning after a loss, after the death of a loved one: It is a state of intense grief...


    Bereavement refers specifically to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss.

    The range of emotions for grief can begin with deep sadness to anger, to depression.

    The process of adjusting to a significant loss can vary dramatically from person to person, depending on what his or her background of beliefs are, cultural practices, personal convictions, personal comfortability and their relationship to what was lost, and many other factors.

    I am sharing some tips to help us all cope. Christ Offers Peace Everlasting.

    Some common thoughts and behaviors often associated with grief are feelings of sadness, yearning, guilt, regret, and anger.

    Sadness: Feeling Unhappy, lack of enthusiasm for things, melancholy. A deep somber, dark, or dull-drab attitude.

    Some people may experience a sense of meaninglessness, and others can feel a sense of relief. Emotions are often surprising in their strength or mildness, and they can also be confusing, such as when a person misses a painful relationship. 


    Thoughts during grief can vary from “there’s nothing I can do about it” to “it’s my fault, I could have done more” or from “she had a good life” to “it wasn’t her time.” They can be troubling or soothing, and people in grief can bounce between different thoughts as they make sense of their loss. Grieving behaviors run from crying to laughter, and from sharing feelings to engaging silently in activities like cleaning, writing, or exercising. Some people find comfort in the company of others, particularly with those who may be similarly affected by the loss, and others may prefer to be alone with their feelings.

    What is the local churches response to domestic vilonce within its congregates?

    The question you asked, "the local church's responsibility and/or response to knowledge of abuse (of any type) occurring within it's membership, under it's watch. what scriptural reference should the local church follow when and even if addressing such an issue.

    There are questions within this question that must be addressed to give a direct answer to what your seeking insight on. When you ask how should the local church respond to knowledge of abuse among its members? Scripture points us in these directions 


    Galatians 6:1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

    I Thessalonians 5:14Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.
    Romans 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love... 15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

    I believe the scriptures are clear that we are to bring comfort and support to those who may suffer abuse. I believe the answer that our sister gave gives good advice on listening, giving counsel based in your knowledges and experience and directing them to those more knowledgeable or appropriate. As you read I Corinthians 5:1-13 you will see how dramatically the early church dealt with these types of issues. Very much unlike how present day church deals with it. The bible is clear we are to care for one another like sheep and shepherd. That is our example of the church left by Jesus.

    Now there is another question I feel your asking that would generate additional response. Your question said members under it's watch. I am not sure if your asking how a Pastor should handle it according to scripture if you are, that's an entire teaching that text will not be the best way to share it.

    Notes from Mark 10:22

    The command/challenge that was preented I believe was a hard sell. Perhaps the conditions of his acquisition were now different; making it a more challenging thing now to sell than it was to originally acquire and secure.

    I believe this is what makes it difficult for those with riches. The principles of acquisition in the earth are different from the principles of giving and surrender in following Christ. Earthly principles do not secure Kingdom riches. What the young man wanted he needed to employ another method.

    As I pondered your question, there are many situations I could describe that would identify why so many woman and young girls have developing within them low self esteem. But rather than just rattle off scenarios, I'd rather give you a definition of it's seed characteristics and atmospheres for it's cultivation. Low Self Esteem (from hear out I'll call it LSE) is a lower recognition or identification of one's self. That is to think lower of one's worth, value, importance, relevance or significance than one should. LSE is to devalue one's self based on a false meter or measure whether self imposed because of ignorance (not deliberate, but simply the lack of knowledge of), erroneous information regarded as truth, the absence of positive influences or spiritually and or emotionally blind (this blindness can be permanent or temporary), or to have someone else impose their thoughts and will of you upon you creating a false sense of your worth.

    These I believe are the purpose of the seeds of LSE. The seeds of LSE come in many forms and produce many variations and manifestations or scenarios in which women and young girls become victims of the strangulating effects of the growth and maturity of the seeds of LSE planted in the heart, mind and spirit of a young woman.

    At maturity these seeds take on actions and activities causing it's victim to be involved in poor decision making based on the purpose of the seed and that is to manifest a debased value of self. Therefore those under the demise of this seed continue to allow it to cultivate and mature by embracing insecurity, possessing an inability to discern appropriately and adopting as truth the notion they don't deserve any good thing. Thus the cycle of cause and effect keeps the seed of LSE germinating. The seed is planted, the young woman believes she has little value because of what she has been taught or not. Her actions and choices confirm the lies, (choosing the wrong partners, doing things to themselves to punish themselves or others), bad relationships, lack of goal setting and dream achievements, no spiritual voice of wisdom in ones life, only cultivates the atmosphere that allows the LSE individual to find reinforcement and validation that keeps them locked into making the same choices.

    Example; a young woman is told she is unattractive and no one will ever want her except to sleep with her for sex. She believes this and begins to choose relationships that confirm the lie and she has sex with men who only affirm what she already believes, that she is not good enough,thus keeping the cycle going.... She is treated lowly which confirms what she believes and she continues to allow what she believes even though she often knows no different behaviors to do to alter this because the seed, has become a strangling vine choking the esteem right out of a person leaving them gasping for air and help from anyone even if from the wrong one. Again keeping the cycle going.

    Again I hope my definition will help you. I could have given you the common scenarios of abuse-sexual;mental, emotional, parental or others, neglect,
    economic adversity, bad influences, etc. But I believe they all derive from what I have described previously.

    You may quote me

    A 21st Century Apostle

    A 21st Century apostle must have a revelation. They must possess the ability to uncover, reveal and make manifest what is not obvious. They must possess the knowledge and power to remove the veil of darkness and reveal divine truths. They must be sober not intoxicated, delusional, hallucinogenic, or high on anything that distorts the truth. This revelatory mindset is not obtained from the carnal dictates of the flesh, but by divine revelation from God. An apostolic leader must gird up the loins of their mind, through which every thought, every meditation, and the process of every act or action is initiated. In order to be successful in completing the 21st Century apostolic assignment, an apostle must be relevant in revelational truths to expose the church to the elements that produces maturity and fruit of productive ministry.

    The ascension gift


    What IS the five-fold ministry? It's based upon the "ascension gifts" referred to in Ephesians 4:8,11 "Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men...And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, shepherds and teachers..." 
    The five-fold ministry is based upon the doma gifts, the ascension gifts. The word doma comes from the Greek word "gifts" used in Ephesians 4:8. These doma gifts did not come into the Church until Jesus ascended (hence the term "ascension gifts"). Before this time, there were apostles, prophets, and teachers, but they were not doma gifts to the Church; they were gifts from the Old Covenant.
