Blessings Folk!

The Word is abundantly clear.
There is absolutely no doubt.
There is no room for varied opinion.

The Lord wants us to know this.

This is a Word for those who profess to be true Believers.

1 John 2
9 The one who says he is in the Light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now.
10 The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him.
11 But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

It is simple.
You can not profess to be of the Light of God and hate a brother.

If you hate, then you are in Darkness, not Light.

But, wait!
There is more.

1 John 3
13 Do not be surprised, brethren, if the world hates you.
14 We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death.
15 Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.

Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer.
There is no eternal life abiding within.

We know that we have passed out of the Darkness of Death into life because we love the brethren.

One more…

1 John 4
19 We love, because He first loved us.
20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.
21 And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.

If you hate and say you “love God”, you are a liar.

Liars will not inherit the Kingdom.
They will inherit something else…

Revelation 21
8 But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

The Lord tells us that the world will know that we are His disciples by our love for one another.

John 13
By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

What does the world see in you?


Therefore, if you truly love God, then love one another.

It is the Lord in us that loves…

"The End of All Things Is Near"

January 26, 2012

“The End of All Things Is Near”

Blessings Folk!!

The end of all things is near.

This was written by the Most High God some 1900+ years ago.

How much nearer is the end today?

What should we be doing?
How should we act?


1 Peter
1 Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,

2 so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.

3 For the time already past is sufficient for you to have carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties and abominable idolatries.

4 In all this, they are surprised that you do not run with them into the same excesses of dissipation, and they malign you;

5 but they will give account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

6 For the gospel has for this purpose been preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will of God.
7 The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer.

8 Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.

9 Be hospitable to one another without complaint.

10 As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

11 Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Be prepared to suffer in the flesh as Christ did.
Arm yourself with the same purpose.

What purpose?
Death to self.
Determined to live the balance of this life in the flesh for the will of God, not the lusts of man.

Leave behind the activities of the past life…that time was enough.

  • sensuality
  • lusts
  • drunkenness
  • carousing
  • drinking parties
  • abominable idolatries

If you leave these behind, those with whom you had formerly run will be surprised..
They will malign you.
Worry not. They will be judged by God.

We are to live in the Spirit according to the will of God.

How will this be manifest?
What are we to do?

  • Be of sound judgment
  • Be of sober spirit for the purpose of prayer
  • Above all…get that? Above all...keep fervent in love for one another. Why? Love covers a multitude of sins.
  • Be hospitable without complaint
  • Serve one another. How? Each true believer is gifted by God. Two major arenas of spiritual giftedness are revealed here - speaking and serving. They are not mutually exclusive. If one speaks, may he speak the utterances of God. Whoever serves, do so by the strength the Lord provides.
  • Be a good steward of the grace of God released in us.

This is so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever.

How different would our world be if the Body of Christ lived like this?

Let us do so.

The end of all things is near.



January 24, 2012


Blessings Folk!

Have you ever done what you felt the Lord told you to do...only to see no “results”?

You are not alone.

Read this encounter…

Matthew 17

14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
 15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
 17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
 18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
 19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
 21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

A man had a problem.
His son was vexed...don’t you love that word?...he was called a “lunatic”...literally it means he was “moon-struck”.

He came to the Lord and cried out for mercy.

Then came the statement…” I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.”

I’m certain that the disciples were thrilled with that statement.

They had apparently tried to bring relief.
They had tried to do what Jesus had told them...cast out demons.

But, they failed...and all knew.
Jesus’ response is not what would be expected.

“O faithless and perverse generation”...true enough…
“How long shall I be with you?”...time was running short, there was no time to waste…
“How long shall I suffer you”… how long shall I endure?

Jesus sinned not in these statements though they sound harsh.

Jesus then summoned the boy.
Jesus rebuked the devil.
The devil...demon...departed out of the boy.
The child was cured that very hour.

We learn some things.
A demon caused the problem.
Such is true today.
Jesus rebuked the demon, it left.
Such is true today.

Much of what we call “medical problems” are not such - they are demons having their way with humans.

The disciples waited until they were “apart with Jesus”...alone with Him...to enquire what had occurred - pride thing.

Why could they not cast out the demon?

Because of their unbelief.
Because of the littleness of their faith.
Such is true today.

Jesus then tells us the power of faith.
If we had the faith as a grain of a mustard seed...very, very small seed...then we could move mountains.
If we had that small element of faith...then nothing would be impossible unto you.

Again, nothing would be impossible.

Most believers live lives of the “impossible”.
There is little faith.

Oh, there is much work...much busy-ness...much endeavor...much of man.
But little faith.

Let us not be such.

May we be people of the “impossible”.

Oh, why did the disciples fail?

  • little faith
  • “this kind”...there is an apparent hierarchy within the demonic realm. This kind of demon does not go out but by prayer and fasting.

We must be ready in season and out of season.
Apparently, they were not.
Jesus did not say “wait...I’ll go fast and pray for three days and be back”...He was prepared.

May we be prepared by abiding in Him.


"Fear, Trouble, Intimidation"

January 16, 2012

“Fear, Trouble, Intimidation”

Blessings Folk!

Fear, trouble and intimidation permeate the Body of Christ.

We are fearful of the religious.
We continually kowtow to corrupt practices of man, all the while exalting our “obedience” and “godliness”.

In most of our communities we are in a time of training.
Training for difficult, dark days to come.

Give heed to what we are to do.

1 Peter
13 Who is there to harm you if you prove zealous for what is good?
14 But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. AND DO NOT FEAR THEIR INTIMIDATION, AND DO NOT BE TROUBLED,
15 but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;
16 and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.

No harm will come to us if we prove to be zealous for what is good.

That does not mean that suffering might not come...even death.

Blessed we are when we suffer for the sake of righteousness.

Do not fear their intimidation.
Do not be troubled.

These are commands.
There may be temptation to fear and be troubled.
Do not do so.


Sanctify Christ as Lord in your heart.

Sanctify means to separate from profane things, to purify, to cleanse.

Our hearts must be purified and cleanse by and before the Lord.

This will enable us to be able to give a defense for that which we believe...in season/out of season. Anytime. Anywhere.

Not a rote regurgitation of the latest tool of evangelism (as useful as they might be), but a Spirit empowered accounting of the Hope that is in us!

We are to do so with gentleness and reverence.
Reverence unto the Lord? Yes.
Reverence - honor, humility, patience - to the one before us? Yes!

Keep a good conscience.

Those who revile the good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.

These are issues of the heart.

Where is your heart?
What does your heart desire?
What does your heart dwell upon?

"To Sum Up…"

January 12, 2012

“To Sum Up…”

Blessings Folk!

In 1 Peter 2 and 3 the Lord gives us insight into how to live in varied relationships…
  • governmental
  • servant/master
  • wives/husbands

Then this is stated…

1 Peter 3
 8 To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit;
9 not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing.
10 For,

So, all of us - true believers - are to be…

  • harmonious
  • sympathetic
  • brotherly
  • kindhearted
  • humble in spirit

These qualities are lacking in many portions of the professing church.


  1. Folk do not know the truth of the requirement of such.
  2. Many who claim to “be saved” are not.

We are…
  • not to return evil for evil
  • not to return insult for insult
  • to give blessing rather than evil and insults

In living this way, in giving blessing we will inherit a blessing.

Do you desire Life, to love, to see good days?
Then keep your tongue from evil.
Keep your tongue from deceit.

Turn away from evil.
Do good.
Seek peace.
Pursue peace.

Do not forget.
We are not alone.

The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous.
The ears of the Lord attend to our prayers.


The face of the Lord is against those who do evil.

It is far better to seek the face of the Lord…

"Aliens and Strangers of Purpose"

January 11, 2012

“Aliens and Strangers of Purpose”

Blessings Folk!

I continue to be amazed at how folk will strive and struggle to do things “for God”, yet they will not simply do what God commands.

So many go the way of Cain.
They seek to approach God in “their way” and by the fruit of “their labor” rather than in the way the Lord instructs.
They seek to be “relevant”.
They seek to be “seeker-sensitive”.
They seek to be a part of something “emergent”.

The cute strategies and buzz-phrases of men continue to increase as does the darkness of the world.

Yet, most are powerless.

They forget/reject the Truth of the Lord.

They refuse to walk in Who we are…

We saw previously that we are Living Stones, a Peculiar People, a Chosen Race, A Royal Priesthood, A Holy Nation.

We are also Aliens and Strangers to this world.

Yet, so many who would profess to be such, seek lives that pursue the world.

Give heed…

1 Peter 2
11 Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul.
12 Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation.

We must abstain from fleshly lusts...in all its flavors.
It wages war against our very soul.

Our behavior before “those outside” testifies to them.
They are watching.
What are they seeing?

We have a calling.
We have a purpose.

1 Peter 2
21 For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps,
23 and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously;
24 and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.
25 For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.

The purpose?
Follow in His steps.
Revile not in return.
Entrust ourselves to Him.
Die to sin.
Live to righteousness.

Christ set the example…
Suffered, without uttering threats
Committed no sin
No deceit in His mouth
Reviled, yet did not return such
Bore our sins in His Body
Healed us.

Live in and by Him.



January 9, 2012


Blessings Folk!

The Lord in His Word describes Jesus in several ways...Shepherd, Door, Light, Gate, etc.

One of my favorite comes from the following passage.

Give close heed to...
  • the use of metaphor…
  • how Jesus is described…
  • how we are described…
  • what we learn about those who Believe
  • what we learn about those who do not believe
  • the passages in ALL CAPS are quotes from the Old Testament - things prophesied.

1 Peter 2
4 And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God,
5 you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
6 For this is contained in Scripture:
 7 This precious value, then, is for you who believe; but for those who disbelieve,
 8 and,
   for they stumble because they are disobedient to the word, and to this doom they were also appointed.
 9 But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE OF GOD; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY.

Jesus is…

  • Living Stone
  • rejected by men
  • Choice and Precious in the sight of God

True Believers are…
  • living stones in the Lord
  • being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood
  • to offer up spiritual sacrifices
  • will not be disappointed in Him
  • chosen race (KJV says “generation”… I like that better) Happy
  • royal priesthood
  • a holy nation
  • a people for God’s own possession (KJV - “a peculiar people&rdquoWinking

  • rejected the Lord, the Very CornerStone
  • stumble because they are disobedient to the word
  • they were/are appointed to this doom (interesting...pay attention&hellipWinking

We once were not a people of the Lord.
But, now…
We are the people of God.

We had not received mercy…
But, now…
We have received mercy.

Remember the mercy of the Lord.

Are you not a person of the Lord?
Then call out to Him.

Are you a Believer, yet you have turned away...you have sinned?
Then call out to Him.

His mercy is abundant.

Lamentations 3
 22 It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Rest in His mercy.
Rejoice in His forgiveness.
Stand upon the Living Rock of our Salvation.

Blessings Folk!

What do you desire?

A loaded question I know.

We are told in the Word what to desire.

In the following, note what we are rid from our lives and what we are to desire.

1 Peter 2
 1 So rid yourselves of all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all slander.
2 Like newborn infants, desire the pure spiritual milk, so that you may grow by it for your salvation,
3 since you have tasted that the Lord is good.

We are to ride ourselves of…

  • all malice
  • all deceit
  • all hypocrisy
  • all envy
  • all slander

Often folk believe that upon salvation we no longer will be tempted with such.

This is not the case.

We have a decision to make as to what we will walk in.

Will we walk in the Spirit and the new man created by God?

Or, will we walk in the flesh, in the old man, in the patterns and practices of the past life “in Egypt”?

We are empowered to walk in holiness.
We are holy.

Yet, we can reject/override and walk in sin.

We are to desire something else.

We are to desire pure, spiritual milk.
This will provide growth in our salvation.

Usually “spiritual milk” is stated to be the Word of God - exclusively.

The Word is milk unto us.

But, I do not believe that “spiritual milk” is limited to the Word.

We know that the Spirit teaches us.

John 14
 25 “I have spoken these things to you while I remain with you.
26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit—the Father will send Him in My name—will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.

We know that the Body has a role/function.

1 Thessalonians 5
14 And we exhort you, brothers: warn those who are irresponsible, comfort the discouraged, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
15 See to it that no one repays evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good for one another and for all.

So, the picture is that of growing in relationship in the Lord through all that He releases.

We are to crave/desire this “spiritual milk” as an infant desires its mother’s milk.

If you have seen this you understand the picture.

We are not to live exclusively from “milk”.

Hebrews 5
11 We have a great deal to say about this, and it’s difficult to explain, since you have become too lazy to understand.
12 Although by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the basic principles of God’s revelation again. You need milk, not solid food.
13 Now everyone who lives on milk is inexperienced with the message about righteousness, because he is an infant.
14 But solid food is for the mature—for those whose senses have been trained to distinguish between good and evil.

Therefore, let us be not lazy in our pressing on in the Kingdom.
Let us not exist on milk alone.
Rather, let us partake of the solid food that the Lord gives.
Let us move beyond the “basic principles of God’s revelation” into that which He has for us.
Allow the Lord to move you into maturity…trained to distinguish between good and evil.

"Sincerely Love One Another Earnestly"

January 2, 2012

“Sincerely Love One Another Earnestly”

Blessings Folk!

Let us look at the last few verses of 1 Peter 1… go to http://www.dalemoore.tv and scroll through the recent posts to be in context…

1 Peter 1
22 By obedience to the truth, having purified yourselves for sincere love of the brothers, love one another earnestly from a pure heart,
23 since you have been born again—not of perishable seed but of imperishable—through the living and enduring word of God.
24 For
   All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like a flower of the grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, 25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.
   And this is the word that was preached as the gospel to you.

Through obedience to the Truth we have been saved by the blood of Jesus.

We have been purified by His blood.

Therefore, since we are purified, we are to manifest love for fellow brothers.

We are to love earnestly.
We are to love from a pure heart.

Sadly, this is rare within the professing Body of Christ.

Too often I have heard “I have to love them in the Lord, but I don’t like them”.
This is not true love.

The Lord is abundantly clear about this.
I have mentioned it repeatedly...often I think too much…but, then the Lord mentions it repeatedly.

Jesus said that the world would know that we are His disciples by our love for one another.

John 13
35 By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Not by our love of Him.
Not by our perfect theology.
Not by our “growth” in numbers.
Not by our buildings.
Not by our programs.
Not by our performances (“services&rdquoWinking in the name of the Lord.

But rather, by our love for one another.

Not even our love of those in the world.

Our love for one another.

Many within the professing Body do not do this.


Personally I believe it is due to the fact that they are not truly saved.
I think some 75% of those who are “religious”, “go to church”, etc. are not truly saved.
I base this on the parable of the sower.

If they are not saved, then they can not manifest true love for one another.

Oh, we can be nice.
We can manifest the love of man.
But, one can not truly love the brethren if they are not part of the brethren.

1 John 4
20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.

The Word of God endures forever.
The Love of God manifested through us endures forever.

The other stuff will burn…as the grass of the field.

But love endures forever.

Today, examine yourself…

2 Corinthians 13
5 Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith. Examine yourselves. Or do you yourselves not recognize that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless you fail the test.

You are born again of imperishable seed.
You are born again through the Living and Enduring Word of God.

So, love.

1 Corinthians 13
13 Now these three remain:
faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest of these is love.

"Therefore…Be Holy"

January 1, 2012

“Therefore...Be Holy!”

Blessings Folk!

Be certain to read the previous posts if you have not already…
(http://www.dalemoore.tv for Facebook folk)

This is important because of the first word in Word today - “Therefore...”

It is because of what we have seen earlier that the following is true.

In this passage we see these truths about the Believer’s life. These have special impact on the first day of a new man-made calendar year.

We are to…
  • have our minds ready for action
  • be serious
  • set our hope completely on the grace to be brought at the revelation of Jesus Christ
  • be obedient children
  • not be conformed to the desires of our former ignorance
  • be holy in all our conduct, even as the One Who has called us is Holy
  • conduct ourselves in fear during the time of our temporary residence

Remember what has happened to us…
  • redeemed from our empty way of life
  • redeemed by the blood of Jesus...not silver nor gold

Forget not the process...share it with others.
  • Jesus was chosen before the foundation of the world to be the perfect Lamb without defect nor blemish
  • Jesus was revealed at the end of the times
  • We are Believers in God through Jesus
  • God raised Jesus from the dead
  • God gave Jesus glory
  • Our faith and hope are in God

1 Peter 1
13 Therefore, with your minds ready for action, be serious and set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires of your former ignorance. 15 But as the One who called you is holy, you also are to be holy in all your conduct;
16 for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy.
 17 And if you address as Father the One who judges impartially based on each one’s work, you are to conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your temporary residence. 18 For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from the fathers, not with perishable things like silver or gold,
19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish.
20 He was chosen before the foundation of the world but was revealed at the end of the times for you
21 who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

Man craves hope...so much so that he is easily deceived by the lying mechanizations of man with “hopey/changey” words.

God is the Only Hope.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth the Life.
We are to be Holy as He is.

If it were not possible for the true Believer to be Holy, then God would not have commanded it.

We are holy because He is Holy.

Let us at the beginning of this year determine through Him to die to self and live the Holy life that indwells and awaits us.

Fear not the circumstance nor situation of the world in these last days.
Things will soon become “much worse” in the eyes of man.
We are to fear God. Not man. Not situation.


Here is a cool, freebie for the new year.
If you have an Android phone...our worship group, Victory Park, has a new android app. Download it here or search the Marketplace.

I’m interested in seeing what can be done with it. Happy Happy
Share with others.
