The Gospel According to Matthew – Lesson 1 (Continued)

LESSON 1

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW

CHPTRS. 1-3

Geneology- The 42nd Generation Continued:

Ch. 1-2: “The book of the Genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham”

(Mat 1:1) The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

(Mat 1:2) Abraham fathered Isaac, and Isaac fathered Jacob, and Jacob fathered Judah and his brothers.

(Mat 1:3) And Judah fathered Pharez and Zarah of Tamar. And Pharez fathered Hezron, and Hezron fathered Ram,

(Mat 1:4) and Ram fathered Amminadab, and Amminadab fathered Nahshon, and Nahshon fathered Salmon.

(Mat 1:5) And Salmon fathered Boaz of Rahab, and Boaz fathered Obed of Ruth, and Obed fathered Jesse,

(Mat 1:6) and Jesse fathered David the king. And David the king fathered Solomon of her who had been wife of Uriah.

(Mat 1:7) And Solomon fathered Rehoboam, and Rehoboam fathered Abijah, and Abijah fathered Asa.

(Mat 1:8) And Asa fathered Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat fathered Jehoram, and Jehoram fathered Uzziah.

(Mat 1:9) And Uzziah fathered Jotham, and Jotham fathered Ahaz, and Ahaz fathered Hezekiah.

(Mat 1:10) And Hezekiah fathered Manasseh, and Manasseh fathered Amon, and Amon fathered Josiah.

(Mat 1:11) And Josiah fathered Jehoiachin and his brothers, at the time they were carried away to Babylon.

(Mat 1:12) And after the carrying away to Babylon, Jehoiachin fathered Shealtiel, and Shealtiel fathered Zerubbabel.

(Mat 1:13) And Zerubbabel fathered Abiud, and Abiud fathered Eliakim, and Eliakim fathered Azor.

(Mat 1:14) And Azor fathered Sadoc, and Sadoc fathered Achim, and Achim fathered Eliud.

(Mat 1:15) And Eliud fathered Eleazar, and Eleazar fathered Matthan, and Matthan fathered Jacob.

(Mat 1:16) And Jacob fathered Joseph, the husband to be of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called the Christ.

(Mat 1:17) So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations. And from David until the carrying away into Babylon, fourteen generations. And from the carrying away into Babylon until Christ, fourteen generations.

C.According to Matthew in the 17th verse, the total generations (14+14+14) would be 42. But when we count the generations down through Jesus, there are only 41! As we read the first sixteen verses of the book of Matthew, we find that David was the 14th generation, from David to the Babylonian captivity made Jeconias the 28th generation and from Jeconias to Joseph (husband of Mary) was another 12 generations making Joseph the 40th generation. This makes Jesus, according to the generations of law, the 41st generation so where is the 42nd generation? There seems to be a missing generation, or is there? Note that the scripture says UNTO CHRIST! The answer is that there is only to be one generation since Jesus, and it is a nation of sons that have been coming forth since the resurrection of Christ! They are the CHRIST generation, those who are born of the Spirit of the Living God.

D.It is an eternal generation born of the Holy Spirit of the LIVING GOD! It is the generation of THE CHRIST! The Psalmist declared a ‘seed’ that would be accounted for a generation!

A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation. They shall come and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this. Psalm 22:30-31

E. In this verse of scripture, the word ‘Seed’ is the same as “a generation!’ Therefore, we see that it is the SEED of Jesus Christ that shall declare His Generation in the earth. But who is the SEED OF CHRIST? If we look to a natural lineage, then we would have to say that the generations stopped in relationship to fathers and mothers bringing forth children. We know that Man has always based descendancy and generations according to the natural seed, but when God was incarnate in the flesh, He took no wife, nor did He leave behind any natural children. According to the culture of man, Jesus was an utter failure because He didn’t leave any seed (natural born sons) behind. It was very important in that day for all men to have a first-born son for inheritance. It was to the first-born that blessing and inheritance was passed down.

F.He was taken from prison and from judgment: and WHO SHALL DECLARE HIS GENERATION? for He was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was He stricken. And He made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich in His death; because He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth. Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him, He hath put Him to grief, when thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin, HE SHALL SEE HIS SEED, HE SHALL PROLONG HIS DAYS, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.” Isa 53:8-10

G.This prophecy is called the Messianic prophecy. Jesus was cut off from the land of the living and yet the scripture declares that HIS SEED shall prolong His days! How is this possible for the term ‘PROLONG HIS DAYS’ literally meant that His life would be reproduced in His generations! If we go back to the book of Genesis, there is a key that will help us to begin to understand the progeny of the Spirit. Remember in Genesis the 3rd chapter, that God declared to the serpent “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Gen. 3:15). It would be the seed of the WOMAN, not the seed of man, that would bruise the head of the enemy and bring reconciliation to man. And then we find in Matthew 1:18 “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost”! Although Joseph was the father of Jesus in the world, he was not the progenitor of Jesus. Jesus did not come through the seed of Joseph! He was of the seed of Mary, a child of the Holy Ghost! He was born of the Spirit! The ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD! Yet, was He really the only begotten son?

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Gal 3:16 Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ.

Now, let’s continue to track the seed. (Gal 3:16) And to Abraham and to his Seed the promises were spoken. It does not say, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, “And to your Seed,” which is Christ.

Now Abraham had many descendants, but the scripture declares that the promises were only made to HIS SEED, which WAS CHRIST! So the promises were made only to ONE SEED…..CHRIST! Then the scriptures go on to say,

“And if you be Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Gal. 3:29).

H. We see here that the seed of Abraham are those who belong to (ARE ONE WITH) Christ!

Jesus/Yeshua was fully God and He was fully man. He was the FIRST BEGOTTEN from above and the first born of many brethren. Rom. 8:29

He came to bring an end to the natural lineage of the first man ADAM. He was bringing forth a new creation in the earth, but not of the earth! This was a generation that would be BORN AGAIN! BORN FROM ABOVE FROM THE BEGINNING. Isaiah declared Jesus to be THE EVERLASTING FATHER! And as a Father, he would bring forth SONS!

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

I.He is called the everlasting Father because of the generation that would come forth out of Him by the Spirit through the finished work of the cross! When the spear went into the side of Jesus/Yeshua, blood and water poured out of him and fell upon the earth. In the finality of death, heaven and earth came together as one and brought forth a NEW SEED, A NEW CREATION, A SEED THAT WOULD DECLARE HIS GENERATIONS! Out of His side (the womb of man) came the NEW WOMAN, THE CHURCH! His seed was established upon the earth for an inheritance for eternity!

“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto you, You must be born again. The wind blows where it lists, and thou hear the sound thereof, but cannot not tell where it comes, and where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” John 3:6-8.

As stated in the New Birth, the word ‘born’ means “to be begotten, procreated” and ‘again’ means ” born from above”! So truly, as we come to Christ, the old creation passes away and behold all things are made new! We are a renewed creation, descendants of God, THE 42nd GENERATION! And we see from the scripture that the sons of God are all numbered:

“He tells the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names” (Psalm 147:4). So, we see that there is a set number!

Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha’ Masiach- literally means the Captain of our Salvation, the Anointed One and his Many-Membered Body!

“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:” 1Peter 2:9

 

There is a generation of people chosen of God in Christ to be the royal priesthood and holy nation in the earth. This generation once wandered in the darkness but now live in His light (SHEKINAH GLORY). They are a people of understanding, a people of purpose, a people of destiny. They have made their calling and election sure.

2 Pet. 1:10 Therefore rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, you shall never fall:
And they are ready for the culmination of all things. We are the sovereign election of the Father before the foundation of the world. Gen. 1:26-28

“Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwells in mount Zion.” Isaiah 8:18

Note the word CHILDREN! Did you know that you are a sign and a wonder? Why? Because your lineage is of the Spirit and you are the children, the descendants of the Lord! WE ARE MOUNT ZION – PEOPLE OF GOD! WE ARE THE NEW JERUSALEM – THE LAMB’S WIFE – THE CITY OF THE LIVING GOD! We are the Body of Christ, the fullness of Him that fills all in all (Eph. 1:22-23). Just as Jesus/Yeshua was the express image of the Father in the earth, so we are the express image of Jesus in the earth! A NEW GENERATION is in the earth born not of natural man! But we are a heavenly people born of an INCORRUPTIBLE SEED! We are the PROGENY OF GOD THE SON, THE WORD WHO BECAME FLESH AND DWELLS AMONG US!

“And He said unto me, It is done. I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is thirsty of the fountain of the water of life freely. HE THAT OVERCOMES shall inherit all things; and I will be HIS GOD, and HE SHALL BE MY SON.” Rev. 21:6-7

Beginning a New Line of People
When God crashed into the genealogy of the human race, He purified the race. He started over with a new Adam, a renewed start for humanity. Therefore, He could create a new line of people from Jesus Christ /Yeshua Ha’Masiach. Does that not sound strange? However, we look at the genealogies of Matthew and Luke and we see that they stop at Jesus. The [only] inspired word of God says:

Jesus’ Genealogy traced backwards:

Luke 3:23-38 Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, the son of Heli,24 the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Janna, the son of Joseph,25 the son of Mattathiah, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum, the son of Esli, the son of Naggai,26 the son of Maath, the son of Mattathiah, the son of Semei, the son of Joseph, the son of Judah,27 the son of Joannas, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, the son of Neri,28 the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elmodam, the son of Er,29 the son of Jose, the son of Eliezer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi,30 the son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonan, the son of Eliakim,31 the son of Melea, the son of Menan, the son of Mattathah, the son of Nathan, the son of David,32 the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Boaz, the son of Salmon, the son of Nahshon,33 the son of Amminadab, the son of Ram, the son of Hezron, the son of Perez, the son of Judah,34 the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor,35 the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah,36 the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech,37 the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalalel, the son of Cainan,38 the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.

A.Jesus was a Second Adam who was to start a renewed race of people.

1.How can you begin a new race of people if you do not have any descendants?
· The first Adam had descendants by flesh and blood (by physiological genealogy) also by living in the sense/soulish realm.
· The second Adam has descendants who are born the same way He was (by a virgin birth).

2.What is the difference?

· The second Adam (Messiah Jesus) is the eternal Son of God who is without sin.
· The descendants of the first Adam (all human beings) are flesh/sense oriented; after the first Adam sinned, he could only begat sense minded people. The only reason the redeemed descendants of the first Adam have a renewed nature (by a virgin birth) is by faith in the eternal Son of God.

We will continue with Les 1 next week.

The blessings of the Lord are upon you whether by blood, adoption/sonship or assignment. The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. Prov. 10:22

The Gospel According to Matthew Introduction

LESSON 1 Matthew

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW

Introduction

History-Book of Matthew

The word ‘gospel’ means good news. There are four gospel accounts in the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

The first three gospels are sometimes called the ‘synoptic’ (same view) gospels. This is because they each cover teaching and miracles by Jesus that are also covered in another account. John, writing later, recounts Jesus’ other words and miracles that have a particular spiritual meaning.

All four gospels present Jesus as both the Son of God and Son of Man, Humanity. They all record His baptism, the feeding of the 5,000 from five loaves and two fishes, Mary’s anointing of the Lord Jesus, His prayer in the garden of Gethsemane, His betrayal, trial, crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection. However, each writer does so in a slightly different way, recording additional details or emphasizing one aspect more than the others.

Matthew was one of the first twelve disciples of Jesus (Matthew 9:1; 10:1-4) and therefore an eyewitness; he records more of Jesus’ teaching concerning God’s heavenly kingdom than the other writers, for example the entire Sermon on the Mount.

In the New Testament Matthew is arranged as the first book. However, many scholars feel that it was not the oldest book, but junior to Mark. As the other gospels, its authorship is questioned. The gospel is assumed to be written around 80 A.D. in Palestine or Syria.

The Gospel of Mark probably dates from AD 66–70, Matthew and Luke around AD 85–90, and John AD 90–110. Like the rest of the New Testament, they were written in Greek.

The probable chronological order for the New Testament is: Yah Chanan (John) Mathai (Matthew) Marqaus (Mark) Luqa (Luke).

Matthew writes his gospel account to give us the view of Jesus as the King:
Jesus is introduced as the ‘son of David’ (Matthew 1:1); David had been Israel’s king 1,000 years before Jesus was born.
Jesus’ message is “Repent (change your mind), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17).
When Jesus teaches concerning the law (Matthew 5:17), He assumes the position of God the King, raising the standards of the law and applying it not merely to outward conduct, but to the inward heart (Matthew 5:19,21-22,27-28,43-44).

Jesus shows His authority as King over physical diseases and sickness, psychological and spiritual oppression and even the wind and the waves of God’s creation (e.g. Matthew 4:24; 8:1-17, 23-27).
Matthew records Jesus’ authority in calling the disciples: “Follow me” (Matthew 4:19). This is how Matthew himself became one of the twelve disciples of Jesus. Matthew had formerly been a tax collector, a Jew working for the Roman government, probably dishonest and despised. He briefly gives his own account of how he became a follower of Jesus in Matthew 9:9-13.

Matthew records more than any of the others about Jesus’ teaching concerning God’s kingdom and heavenly rule:

chapters 5-7 show us the constitution of God’s heavenly kingdom,
chapter 13 shows the appearance of the kingdom at various stages
chapters 24-25 show us the reality of the kingdom, its conflicts, its future, and the need to prepare and be watchful for the return of the King.

Matthew records Jesus declaring: He is “greater than Solomon” (Matthew 12:42). Solomon was the son of David. When king David died, Solomon became king. Under king Solomon “the kingdom was established” in peace (I Kings 2:12,45-46; I Chronicles 22:9). “Solomon sat on the throne of the Lord as king” (I Chronicles 19:23) and “built a temple for the name of the Lord” (II Chronicles 2:1). For Jesus to be greater than Solomon He would have to ascend the throne of God and build the house of God, with all His enemies no longer making trouble. Matthew records Jesus the King saying to His disciples “I will build My church and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18); later, having ascertained that the Messiah is a Son, the Son of David, Jesus shows that even king David calls the Messiah “Lord” (Psalm 110:1 and Matthew 22:41-45). Jesus is therefore the King of kings.

Privately, Jesus warns the disciples three times that not everything will happen the way they expect: “the Son of Man will be betrayed; they will kill Him, and the third day He will be raised up” (Matthew 17:22-23).

Matthew records Jesus entering into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey, to cries of “Hosanna to the Son of David”, in direct animated fulfilment of Zechariah’s prophecy regarding the King of Zion, who will establish peace and whose kingdom will extend to the ends of the earth (Zechariah 9:9-10).

Just when it looks to the crowd as though Jesus will prove He is the Messiah by overthrowing the Roman government of Israel, the King is arrested, betrayed by a friend. Even in His arrest, Jesus reminds them He is King “I could pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels” (Matthew 26:53). Instead, as the meek and lowly King, He is judged by earthly rulers (first the Jewish Sanhedrin and then the Roman governor), mocked, scourged and crucified as the King of the Jews (Matthew 27:26-37).

It appears to go quiet after all the rhetoric. Though He is dead, Matthew records the earthly rulers are still not sure about the King of the Jews, because of the possibility of resurrection, so they seal (with wax) the stone covering the tomb entry and place guards over it (Matthew 27:62-66).

Well they might fear, for nothing, not even the power of death or the gates of Hades can hold the King. He rises on the third day, just as He said, and appears to the disciples. Finally, Jesus meets the disciples at the appointed mountain and declares to them: “All authority in heaven and on earth is given to Me. Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:18-20).

We will continue with Les 1 -Introduction to the book of Matthew.

The blessings of the Lord are upon you whether by blood, adoption/sonship or assignment. The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. Prov. 10:22

Firestorm Conference Testimony

Hello Everyone:

I sent out a post asking if anyone had a testimony of what happened to them at the FS Prophetic Roar Conference this year. I have a couple folks who have sent me a note and I wanted to share and let you know it is not too late to send in what happened to you at the Conference at Victory Church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Here is a testimony from Maureen “Bridget” Norris

This conference was going to be much different for me than the others. I had determined this in my heart. Admittedly, I watched a lot of things happen. My heart wanted to participate. My brain argued A LOT.

1.)
The day we had the activation about the Procession music. I heard along the same thing that everyone else heard. The first person got up and almost read my paper where I had written down what I was given. I got up to go to the front. My feet yielded to other people as they also had said what I had written down. I was bouncing up and down in an almost giddiness, because, at that point, I KNEW I was still hearing what God was saying, and not chasing down rabbit-trails. I was ecstatic and my spirit was already jumping.

2.)
I was worshipping during the service the morning of July 31st, and I heard in my spirit to walk over and grab my mattah —what I then called — walking stick. As I reached for it, the hesitation and nerves all said NO, you will make a fool out of yourself. I argued, for about 15 seconds, grabbed it, and walked back to my spot. Prior to this, I had been dealing with back/neck/shoulder issues for a few months, having been awakened in writhing pain to the point of tears, and in the hospital twice in July for the same.

I NEEDED a breakthrough where those, and several other, issues were concerned. As I started to war, in faith, and that is just what it was, WAR, MY atmosphere had changed. I lifted my mattah above my head, both hands, in faith. We started the serious worship. My mattah and my hands were still both up, bent slightly at the elbow, because I was feeling pain, and getting tired.

Suddenly, in the middle of all that, I felt a hand grab the mattah, between my hands, and pull straight up. My feet were planted solid. My arms BOTH straightened up. No pain. A lot of tears, but no pain, for the first time in months. As I had my eyes closed, I thought it was someone who had come over to “fix” me. Well, it was. Just not in the physical.

I thought I heard Bonnie mention my name at one point. I just could NOT take myself away from that. I just continued to worship in my spot, hands raised, eyes closed, elbows solid and locked with that mattah. I went back to Facebook that afternoon to re-watch the broadcast from that morning, to see where it was that Bonnie did say my name and to write down the word Bonnie gave me later in the service.

All that to say this.

That morning, the Lord healed me of so many issues at this conference.
These are just two of the times at this conference that the Lord walked me through and held me up.

Hello Everyone:

I have a couple folks who have sent me a note and I wanted to share and let you know it is not too late to send in what happened to you at the Conference at Victory Church in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Forgive me for my delay as I struggle to get caught up. I am sending the original note concerning the conference with pictures below. Blessings, bon

Here is a testimony from Becca Card, VP Firestorm Ministries Int’l

Every conference we have is different and there is a sense that it just might be the best one. But to me there is no doubt that the 2020 conference is the very best one. First of all Yahweh was in the house waiting on us. I have to believe that no one there left unchanged in some way. Yahweh touched each of us and meld us together in a new way.

For me I had to fight to get there. There were health issues and other things that were stopping me from going. I told Bonnie and others, “If I can just get there, things will change. I will change, but I have to get there. Thanks to Nicole for picking me up and letting me ride with her and some other things I was able to go almost at the last minute.

When I walked into the church I was overwhelmed with the presence of Yahweh. I immediately knew that I was in His Presence. I could have literally fallen on my face and just been with Him. I don’t have words to express it but at that moment there was shift or change in me.

There were a lot of different moments that were special. Yahweh melded us all together. We were one voice. In the middle of pandemic we were together worshipping Yahweh, learning more about Him and then using our gifts.

There was a point when they prayed for me and there was a breakthrough. Even though the symptoms did not go away I got my life back. Every day I got a little more of me and a whole lot more of Yahweh. From the moment I got there and felt the first touch until the last touch when we left the church Yahweh was constantly touching me and changing me.

Yahweh is still changing me even now that I am home. A few short days after getting home I had a cardiology appointment. He wanted to do a heart cath. Miraculously within an hour of being home I had an appointment in two days. My LAD (the widow maker) had two blockages of 80% and 100% . The majority of my LAD artery was blocked and after they put two long stents in the blood is flowing in my heart again. I believe that all this happened as a direct result of what happened at conference.

No one left unchanged. Make plans now to come to next year’s conference. You will be forever changed.

Firestorm 2020 Conference

The Year of The Prophetic Roar

What Happened

Hello Firestormers:

It is almost impossible to explain what all happened at the Firestorm 2020 Conference. In the midst of a pandemic, in the midst of all the fear and riots and our whole lives being shaken, we came together to Roar and Worship our King.

We came to love on Him and let Him know how important He is to us. We came to Fellowship, Dance, Praise and send up our Shouts of Glory and Praise to Yahweh and Yahshua/Jesus for all the world to see.

We came to pray over each other and release the Word of The LORD to all who would hear and believe.

I have no doubt in my mind or spirit, we changed the atmosphere and I declared before the conference; those who came would be changed.

So today, to those of you who were able to come, were you changed?

I would love to hear your testimonies and be able to share them with all of our Firestorm Friends and though many of our friends were not able to come this year because of health, finances and such, I am sure they would love to hear what happened to us. Please take a few moments and right down your thoughts and send them to me: BonnieNelP@aol.com

Blessings to you all and please note; it is not to late to send in a donation to help us with conference expenses.

Here are some pictures from the FS Year of The Prophetic Roar Conference.

The Gospel According to Matthew – Chapters 1 – 3

LESSON 1

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW

CHPTRS. 1-3

Geneology- The 42nd Generation Continued:

Ch. 1-2: “The book of the Genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham”

(Mat 1:1) The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

(Mat 1:2) Abraham fathered Isaac, and Isaac fathered Jacob, and Jacob fathered Judah and his brothers.

(Mat 1:3) And Judah fathered Pharez and Zarah of Tamar. And Pharez fathered Hezron, and Hezron fathered Ram,

(Mat 1:4) and Ram fathered Amminadab, and Amminadab fathered Nahshon, and Nahshon fathered Salmon.

(Mat 1:5) And Salmon fathered Boaz of Rahab, and Boaz fathered Obed of Ruth, and Obed fathered Jesse,

(Mat 1:6) and Jesse fathered David the king. And David the king fathered Solomon of her who had been wife of Uriah.

(Mat 1:7) And Solomon fathered Rehoboam, and Rehoboam fathered Abijah, and Abijah fathered Asa.

(Mat 1:8) And Asa fathered Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat fathered Jehoram, and Jehoram fathered Uzziah.

(Mat 1:9) And Uzziah fathered Jotham, and Jotham fathered Ahaz, and Ahaz fathered Hezekiah.

(Mat 1:10) And Hezekiah fathered Manasseh, and Manasseh fathered Amon, and Amon fathered Josiah.

(Mat 1:11) And Josiah fathered Jehoiachin and his brothers, at the time they were carried away to Babylon.

(Mat 1:12) And after the carrying away to Babylon, Jehoiachin fathered Shealtiel, and Shealtiel fathered Zerubbabel.

(Mat 1:13) And Zerubbabel fathered Abiud, and Abiud fathered Eliakim, and Eliakim fathered Azor.

(Mat 1:14) And Azor fathered Sadoc, and Sadoc fathered Achim, and Achim fathered Eliud.

(Mat 1:15) And Eliud fathered Eleazar, and Eleazar fathered Matthan, and Matthan fathered Jacob.

(Mat 1:16) And Jacob fathered Joseph, the husband to be of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called the Christ.

(Mat 1:17) So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations. And from David until the carrying away into Babylon, fourteen generations. And from the carrying away into Babylon until Christ, fourteen generations.

C.According to Matthew in the 17th verse, the total generations (14+14+14) would be 42. But when we count the generations down through Jesus, there are only 41! As we read the first sixteen verses of the book of Matthew, we find that David was the 14th generation, from David to the Babylonian captivity made Jeconias the 28th generation and from Jeconias to Joseph (husband of Mary) was another 12 generations making Joseph the 40th generation. This makes Jesus, according to the generations of law, the 41st generation so where is the 42nd generation? There seems to be a missing generation, or is there? Note that the scripture says UNTO CHRIST! The answer is that there is only to be one generation since Jesus, and it is a nation of sons that have been coming forth since the resurrection of Christ! They are the CHRIST generation, those who are born of the Spirit of the Living God.

D.It is an eternal generation born of the Holy Spirit of the LIVING GOD! It is the generation of THE CHRIST! The Psalmist declared a ‘seed’ that would be accounted for a generation!

A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation. They shall come and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this. Psalm 22:30-31

E. In this verse of scripture, the word ‘Seed’ is the same as “a generation!’ Therefore, we see that it is the SEED of Jesus Christ that shall declare His Generation in the earth. But who is the SEED OF CHRIST? If we look to a natural lineage, then we would have to say that the generations stopped in relationship to fathers and mothers bringing forth children. We know that Man has always based descendancy and generations according to the natural seed, but when God was incarnate in the flesh, He took no wife, nor did He leave behind any natural children. According to the culture of man, Jesus was an utter failure because He didn’t leave any seed (natural born sons) behind. It was very important in that day for all men to have a first-born son for inheritance. It was to the first-born that blessing and inheritance was passed down.

F.He was taken from prison and from judgment: and WHO SHALL DECLARE HIS GENERATION? for He was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was He stricken. And He made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich in His death; because He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth. Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him, He hath put Him to grief, when thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin, HE SHALL SEE HIS SEED, HE SHALL PROLONG HIS DAYS, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.” Isa 53:8-10

G.This prophecy is called the Messianic prophecy. Jesus was cut off from the land of the living and yet the scripture declares that HIS SEED shall prolong His days! How is this possible for the term ‘PROLONG HIS DAYS’ literally meant that His life would be reproduced in His generations! If we go back to the book of Genesis, there is a key that will help us to begin to understand the progeny of the Spirit. Remember in Genesis the 3rd chapter, that God declared to the serpent “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Gen. 3:15). It would be the seed of the WOMAN, not the seed of man, that would bruise the head of the enemy and bring reconciliation to man. And then we find in Matthew 1:18 “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost”! Although Joseph was the father of Jesus in the world, he was not the progenitor of Jesus. Jesus did not come through the seed of Joseph! He was of the seed of Mary, a child of the Holy Ghost! He was born of the Spirit! The ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD! Yet, was He really the only begotten son?

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Gal 3:16 Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ.

Now, let’s continue to track the seed. (Gal 3:16) And to Abraham and to his Seed the promises were spoken. It does not say, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, “And to your Seed,” which is Christ.

Now Abraham had many descendants, but the scripture declares that the promises were only made to HIS SEED, which WAS CHRIST! So the promises were made only to ONE SEED…..CHRIST! Then the scriptures go on to say,

“And if you be Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Gal. 3:29).

H. We see here that the seed of Abraham are those who belong to (ARE ONE WITH) Christ!

Jesus/Yeshua was fully God and He was fully man. He was the FIRST BEGOTTEN from above and the first born of many brethren. Rom. 8:29

He came to bring an end to the natural lineage of the first man ADAM. He was bringing forth a new creation in the earth, but not of the earth! This was a generation that would be BORN AGAIN! BORN FROM ABOVE FROM THE BEGINNING. Isaiah declared Jesus to be THE EVERLASTING FATHER! And as a Father, he would bring forth SONS!

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

I.He is called the everlasting Father because of the generation that would come forth out of Him by the Spirit through the finished work of the cross! When the spear went into the side of Jesus/Yeshua, blood and water poured out of him and fell upon the earth. In the finality of death, heaven and earth came together as one and brought forth a NEW SEED, A NEW CREATION, A SEED THAT WOULD DECLARE HIS GENERATIONS! Out of His side (the womb of man) came the NEW WOMAN, THE CHURCH! His seed was established upon the earth for an inheritance for eternity!

“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto you, You must be born again. The wind blows where it lists, and thou hear the sound thereof, but cannot not tell where it comes, and where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” John 3:6-8.

As stated in the New Birth, the word ‘born’ means “to be begotten, procreated” and ‘again’ means ” born from above”! So truly, as we come to Christ, the old creation passes away and behold all things are made new! We are a renewed creation, descendants of God, THE 42nd GENERATION! And we see from the scripture that the sons of God are all numbered:

“He tells the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names” (Psalm 147:4). So, we see that there is a set number!

Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha’ Masiach- literally means the Captain of our Salvation, the Anointed One and his Many-Membered Body!

“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:” 1Peter 2:9

 

There is a generation of people chosen of God in Christ to be the royal priesthood and holy nation in the earth. This generation once wandered in the darkness but now live in His light (SHEKINAH GLORY). They are a people of understanding, a people of purpose, a people of destiny. They have made their calling and election sure.

2 Pet. 1:10 Therefore rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, you shall never fall:
And they are ready for the culmination of all things. We are the sovereign election of the Father before the foundation of the world. Gen. 1:26-28

“Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwells in mount Zion.” Isaiah 8:18

Note the word CHILDREN! Did you know that you are a sign and a wonder? Why? Because your lineage is of the Spirit and you are the children, the descendants of the Lord! WE ARE MOUNT ZION – PEOPLE OF GOD! WE ARE THE NEW JERUSALEM – THE LAMB’S WIFE – THE CITY OF THE LIVING GOD! We are the Body of Christ, the fullness of Him that fills all in all (Eph. 1:22-23). Just as Jesus/Yeshua was the express image of the Father in the earth, so we are the express image of Jesus in the earth! A NEW GENERATION is in the earth born not of natural man! But we are a heavenly people born of an INCORRUPTIBLE SEED! We are the PROGENY OF GOD THE SON, THE WORD WHO BECAME FLESH AND DWELLS AMONG US!

“And He said unto me, It is done. I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is thirsty of the fountain of the water of life freely. HE THAT OVERCOMES shall inherit all things; and I will be HIS GOD, and HE SHALL BE MY SON.” Rev. 21:6-7

Beginning a New Line of People
When God crashed into the genealogy of the human race, He purified the race. He started over with a new Adam, a renewed start for humanity. Therefore, He could create a new line of people from Jesus Christ /Yeshua Ha’Masiach. Does that not sound strange? However, we look at the genealogies of Matthew and Luke and we see that they stop at Jesus. The [only] inspired word of God says:

Jesus’ Genealogy traced backwards:

Luke 3:23-38 Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, the son of Heli,24 the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Janna, the son of Joseph,25 the son of Mattathiah, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum, the son of Esli, the son of Naggai,26 the son of Maath, the son of Mattathiah, the son of Semei, the son of Joseph, the son of Judah,27 the son of Joannas, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, the son of Neri,28 the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elmodam, the son of Er,29 the son of Jose, the son of Eliezer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi,30 the son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonan, the son of Eliakim,31 the son of Melea, the son of Menan, the son of Mattathah, the son of Nathan, the son of David,32 the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Boaz, the son of Salmon, the son of Nahshon,33 the son of Amminadab, the son of Ram, the son of Hezron, the son of Perez, the son of Judah,34 the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor,35 the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah,36 the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech,37 the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalalel, the son of Cainan,38 the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.

A.Jesus was a Second Adam who was to start a renewed race of people.

1.How can you begin a new race of people if you do not have any descendants?
· The first Adam had descendants by flesh and blood (by physiological genealogy) also by living in the sense/soulish realm.
· The second Adam has descendants who are born the same way He was (by a virgin birth).

2.What is the difference?

· The second Adam (Messiah Jesus) is the eternal Son of God who is without sin.
· The descendants of the first Adam (all human beings) are flesh/sense oriented; after the first Adam sinned, he could only begat sense minded people. The only reason the redeemed descendants of the first Adam have a renewed nature (by a virgin birth) is by faith in the eternal Son of God.

We will continue with Les 1 next week.

The blessings of the Lord are upon you whether by blood, adoption/sonship or assignment. The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. Prov. 10:22

Song of Solomon – Introduction

Song of Solomon/ Song of Songs- Spiritual Intimacy (In-to-Me-you-see) with the Lord
Spiritual Intimacy – Koinonia -meaning community, communion (common union), joint participation, sharing and intimacy.

For your enjoyment:

(Dance With Me Oh Lover of My Soul to the Song of All Songs) by Paul Wilbur

Introduction:

The Song of Solomon (also titled the Song of Songs or Canticles) was written by King Solomon, who represents Jesus as King, the Bridegroom after his ascent to the Divine realm. Here Christ Jesus, our Bridegroom in (Matthew 25:6), speaks in the form of a melodic song, to his Bride, the Elect (2 Timothy 2:10, Romans 8:33) who answers him as his Love.

2 Timothy 2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the [a]elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

Romans 8:33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.

Matthew 25:6 And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom [a]is coming; go out to meet him!’
The Elect and the Bride are one and the same. One view is that the 144,000 are the Elect, the Bride.

The Song of Solomon, or Song of Songs (hereafter, the Song) as it is titled in the first verse of the Song (also called Canticles in the Latin), asserts that its author is Solomon: “The song of songs, which is Solomon’s. It is widely recognized that the ending of the first verse could be translated to indicate Solomon’s authorship or that the Song was written for him or dedicated to him. Solomon is heralded in the Bible as a gifted songwriter and a man capable of writing the Song, the Song has similarities to other writings of Solomon, and his authorship gives it credibility.

Not only does that book depict a union between Christ and the Church, which is paramount, but I will teach it as the union and marriage of our new spirit and our individual (heart) awareness. Our spirit which is joined unto the Lord is the masculine principle of our life, and our individual heart awareness is the feminine principle of our life. As the seeds of the Mind of Christ which is in our spirit are deposited into our heart awareness, just as a woman’s womb in the natural, a formation begins to take place there, and then a birthing.

This birthing is fruit that remains rather than ‘here today’ and ‘gone tomorrow. When we live from the inside out, we are living out of the Eternal, Infinite, Immortality and the unlimited realm! The purpose of God for our life is not to merely get from Him (being need conscious) but learning how to allow Him to flow out of us on a continuous basis. Part of that experience happens by realizing that He has already given us all things that pertain to life and godliness, and then living out of that which is within us. This is precisely what we see in the Song of Solomon, a maturing process.

The Song of Songs in the first verse depicts that this book reveals the highest experience that we can have. That highest experience is not merely to be filled but fulfilled. It shows us how we can move beyond what Paul the Apostle called the in-part realm and not merely be filled but fulfilled. That does not mean that we throw away the gift realm, but we can experience that, and more. We can live out of our union in Christ and have Him reproduce Himself in, through and as us.

Just as a woman conceives seed in her womb so we conceive the seed of God’s thoughts in the womb of our heart. As that takes place there is then a formation that happens and then it is projected out into the experience of our life.

Song of Solomon depicts a people that bear the fruit of God, and that fruit is fruit that REMAINS! It is not what we have experienced in the past where we have born fruit that was here today and gone tomorrow, but this book is about the LORD reproducing Himself as PERMANENT fruit in, through and as us!

What a wonderful time we live in when we can experience as much of our Father as we can believe for! There is nothing that we must wait for. The Scripture says that hope deferred makes the heart sick. We do not have to put anything off into our future that Jesus Christ paid for and already placed within us; we merely need to live from the inside, out!

The whole book, Song of Solomon is about the Bride of Christ and Her maturing process.

My opinion–The Bride is being quickened at this present time. Our being a Bride speaks of a submissive relationship to the Lord. Becoming a Bride relates to our having a higher (deeper) walk with our Lord. Our being a Bride speaks of a submissive relationship to the Lord. This Bride is within the present- day Church and is quietly being made ready for her unveiling.
Rev. 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.

As we confess our utter dependence upon the Heavenly Bridegroom (Jesus/Yeshua), and commit our lives to Him, we lose our identity and take on His identity, that in a submissive relationship to Him, we become the witness and expression of His life as was John the Baptist. Some say the whole church is the Bride. Others say the Bride is coming out, rising from the Church.
Rev. 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His Bride has made herself ready.”

That is what the parable of the 10 virgins is all about: And the well -prepared ones went in with him to the wedding means that people with goodness and therefore with truth are taken to be with Him. Heaven is likened to a wedding because of the heavenly marriage, the marriage of goodness and truth. The Lord is likened to a Bridegroom because these people are then united with him. That is why the church is called a Bride.

The Song of Solomon is not what it first appears to be. It is not an historical event. It is actually an account of Christ calling His Bride out of the world, away from the pride and vanity it affords, and His tireless, patient and loving efforts to draw her to Him.

Eph. 4:23-24 to ·become [put on; clothe yourself with] the new ·self [ person; or Man;  become like Christ]. That new person is created ·to be like God [or in God’s image;  according to and holiness that comes from truth]. Expanded Bible

Spotlight Eva Windahl, Workshops and More

Hello Everyone:

Hopefully by now, you know about the Firestorm Conference starting this coming Thursday, July 30,31-August 1, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We have been sending out notifications about the schedule, but today I would like to mention a couple things about the Firestorm Leaders who will be ministering during the morning workshop sessions and some added specials for you at the conference.

Eva Windahl is one of our Firestorm Leaders. She is from Sweden and was originally schedule to be one of our evening speakers at the conference, however due to the Covid issues and restrictions involved with flying, she will not be able to be with us.

There is a 6 hours difference from Sweden and the US so, in order to make it a bit easier on Eva, and make sure she will still be a big part of our conference, she will be speaking via the FS Zoom Video Forum Saturday morning. You can also catch Eva on her Wednesday Specials on Facebook entitled: Word of Power – Live Study of Hebrew Word Pictures.

Check out some of her powerful teachings on the Firestorm Website at:

*************************************

A little note about the Workshops each morning at 10:00 CST.

This is where the meat of the conference is found for those who are seeking to understand the Prophetic Ministry and Kingdom Gifts. Each of our leaders will be bringing forth a short teaching and then an activation for the group.

Activation’s and Prophetic Training are extremely valuable when people feel they have a prophetic gift, as well as for those who are more mature and already moving in the prophetic realm. Prophetic people need to be around other prophetic people to know they are not weird or demonic, we balance each other.

Being with mature Christians who receive you as being normal and recognize the call of God on your life, helps you to realize you belong and fit in the Kingdom Ministry. The Prophetic Ministry helps encourage, comfort and exhort other believers.

Learning to help each other and be on a team is key for us all. Lone Ranger Prophets can get into trouble and be led astray by the spirit of pride and move into a realm of manipulation, if they are not careful and grounded by team players. Holding each other accountable and having our prophetic words tested is biblical. We test the word, not the person.

The prophetic ministry. (Prophet) is a gift to the Church and is set in place to help birth and mature those the Spirit calls to bring forth valuable messages to the Church. The Prophet is called to train and equip the Body of Christ and be a minister of reconciliation.

There is an old saying in the Prophetic…People need to “do the stuff” to learn how to hear the voice of God, bring forth prophetic words and learn where their place is in the Kingdom. Purpose and Place are key desires people want to know about and these desires create a hunger to learn and draw closer to God.

You can read about prophecy, hear prophecy, see someone prophecy and desire to prophesy, but until you get around others who prophecy, have a desire to help you move into your destiny, train you, impart and activate you, it is a hard road to follow. Plus, after all of that, it is key you step out on that proverbial limb and go for it. Some say you get out of the boat, your comfort zone and just do it.

So, get ready to be stretched and blessed and move into another level with God through the prophetic ministry. Do not be afraid, be eager to dine at the prophetic table of the Lord.

The Zyto Balance Bio Survey

Coupon Code: FreeSurveyMe
$50.00 Value

 


Here are 6 reasons why it is a good idea to regular ZYTO scans.

Insight into your health and wellness – ZYTO reports provide you with information that may help you identify individual wellness needs. Identifying items to which you have an unusual response gives you and your wellness advisor insight about health-related conditions that may be keeping you from functioning at a balanced state.

Identify your biological coherence for nutrition – Does one size fit all when it comes to wellness maintenance? Of course not!! ZYTO scans identify which products your body shows the most coherent response, we call it your unique biological coherence. Biocommunication results provide you with personalized information to help you identify the products and supplements that are most coherent for you.

· Save Money – Many people purchase nutritional supplements and then try them to see if they will work. Choosing supplements in this way is like purchasing lottery tickets and hoping you will win. ZYTO Biocommunication scans help you identify products for which your body shows a biological coherence. This information helps you purchase with confidence. Your ZYTO scan can help you make informed purchasing decisions.
·
· Increase Energy – Your body consumes its available resources in its effort to maintain a healthy balance. When your body uses those resources to deal with life’s extra challenges, like fighting a cold, you will have less energy to perform your day-to-day physical activities. ZYTO helps you identify the additional support your body may need to maintain that balance and keep your energy levels high. By providing your body that extra help when it is needed, you’re more likely to address issues while they are small, leaving you with more energy for your friends and family.
·
· Track your Health – ZYTO Biocommunication scans give you information ‘in the moment.’ But tracking your scans over time may indicate trends that you’ll want to pay particular attention to. Keeping track of your past can help you predict the future, and reviewing your past Biocommunication reports gives you essentially a look back through time. The more you know about how your body is impacted by factors like seasons of the year, stress, and aging, the more likely you are to make wise choices about your health and wellness.

· Verbal Communication has limitations – Have you ever asked a sick toddler or a child with autism how they are feeling? Even for adults, using words to explain how you feel can be a challenge. Biocommunication opens up an entirely new communication channel with your body. By supplementing our verbal communication with ZYTO Biocommunication, a second perspective is established that can provide helpful insights and information about your health.

Each day at the conference you will have access to over 200 essential oils. Learn how oils from the Bible support your body’s system and gain valuable insight into what God is doing today to bring His Church closer to Him and His Ways.

Terry Thompson

Terry Thompson was born and raised in the North West of England, saved at the age of 18. At the age of 20 he preached for the first time to a group of Palestinians in Israel.

In 1980, he came out into full-time service. He has been involved with evangelism, singing and preaching the full gospel all over England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Terry has worked in tent revivals, town halls and churches. In 1980, he got his first invite to minister in Kentucky and Ohio. This opened the doors to other countries, such as Canada, Poland, Spain, Philippines, New Zealand, Australia, El Salvador, and México.

When Communism started to break down in eastern Europe, Terry had a team that took semi-trucks of aid into the Romania churches.

Terry has been called an encourager of the brethren and loves to give hope to the down trodden. Ministering under a seer’s mantle the Lord has given him dreams and sent him to foreign lands to prophesy what he has seen in the spirit realm for groups and individuals.

Terry and his wife Shirley currently reside in Alabama and continue to share Jesus in local nursing homes and special church events in their area.

Terry was ordained through Firestorm Ministries, Int’l in 2015. He is a Firestorm favorite and currently ministers online through the Firestorm Zoom forums once a month on Tuesdays.

Pastor Ray Frost

In 2012 Ray began serving as an Elder at Victory Christian Center in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, two years later he accepted the position as staff Pastor, where he continues today to watch over the church functions, bring forth sermons and present valuable teachings to the congregation.

Ray and his wife Jan live on a small farm in Eagleville, Tennessee, where they have lived for over thirty-five years. They enjoy spending a lot of time with their grown children and now, they also love being with their grandchildren. Ray loves to hunt, fish and oh, many of us know the rewards from Jan and Ray’s gardens.

Ray grew up on a farm in a small town in Middle Tennessee, where he entered into the gospel music industry, following The Frost Family generations of singing Southern Gospel Music. In 1967 at the age of 12, he began playing drums on the road with the family quartet, at a time, when there were no drummers in Gospel Music.

As the years went by Ray began to venture out playing drums for different styles of music and spending a lot of years on the road. He continued playing drums and traveled over almost all of the United States, Europe, Great Britain and beyond. He soon found himself residing as a regular drummer on the World Famous Grand ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee for many years, working with a lot of top country artists. It was during this season in his life Ray began to passionately pursue The Lord. Little did he realize how this would change the direction of his life and career.

Ray soon left the music business and begin to play drums on worship teams where ever he, his wife and family would attend church. After twenty plus years of playing on worship teams, The Lord called Ray into a different level and area of ministry, which eventually lead him to Victory Christian Center, where he has become extremely passionate about “Growing in the Grace and Knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” and who we are “In Christ” as New Covenant believers. Pastor Ray continues to release this same passion, encouraging and discipling others to understand and receive this powerful truth. He is extremely focused on counseling, ministering and teaching the reality of God’s Unconditional Love and how to apply it in our daily lives.

Partly because of Ray’s background in music, Ray “Absolutely” loves Praise and Worship and the life changing manifested Presence of The Lord we experience as we Enter In. He loves helping other musicians grow in their giftings, as it pertains to praise and worship, encouraging them and teaching them the necessity of song dynamics and the importance of Holy Spirit led worship, as it pertains to their instruments.

It is not surprising the book of Psalms has become a favorite of Ray’s, especially considering his background in music. However, it is not just the Psalms Pastor Ray loves, but also the simplicity of The Pure and Simple Gospel of Grace, which reveals so many areas where we can move and grow in the things of The Holy Spirit as He enables us to find practical ways to help us go through the many trials and tribulations in this world.

You will find Pastor Ray quick to help others who come to Victory Christian Center and he seems to be the beneficiary of overstocked “pallets” of food from various stores. He calls and suddenly his truck is outside your house delivering watermelons, strawberries, cantaloupe and more. Pastor Ray is a Pastor, who trully knows how to “feed his sheep.”

One of Ray’s go-to Scriptures has become; Philippians 4:4-8

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Ray and grandson Carter – off to the woods
