Timbaland’s sweat pants wedding – Marry Me My Way

Timbaland got married on Tuesday chilling in sweat pants as they tied the knot on 06-10-2008).

“Why not tie the knot your way!” wedding minister Paul F. Davis of www.itietheknot.com says.

The record producer and long-term partner Monique Idlett, who works as a music publicist, opted for a low key ceremony and wore sweat pants as they secretly tied the knot in front of a family pastor in a church in Virginia.

The newlywed couple are also planning to hold a formal ceremony in front of friends and family in the Caribbean island of Aruba on June 22.

Timbaland, whose real name is Timothy Z. Mosley, and Monique welcomed their first daughter Reign in November.

The 37-year-old music mogul – who has collaborated with Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado and Madonna – proposed to Monique at Reign’s baby shower last October.

Timbaland isn’t the only celebrity to wed in secret recently says LondonNet.

Former Destiny’s Child singer Beyonce Knowles and hip-hop star Jay-Z married in the musician’s New York apartment in April, while Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon held an impromptu beachside ceremony in the Bahamas following their whirlwind romance.

Broke, But Rich in Love

Broke, but rich in love

Thank the Lord God above

For this I merrily think of

When the bills are mounting

The creditors continually collecting

The interest rates rapidly accruing

The car falling apart and rusting

My body aging and hair graying

The house needing a good painting

The air conditioner strangely squeeking

The food in the refrigerator quickly going

Our insurance premiums surprisingly growing

All of these concerns and cares do continue

Nevertheless when I happily behold you!

My stresses fade and my day is now made

All heaviness of heart is replaced with gladness

All sorrow is swallowed up with your radiance

Your smile soothes my soul and makes me whole

Your touch transcends my troubles and renews me

Your gentle words comfort and tenderly nourish me

Lifting me to a much higher place full of divine grace

Reminding me that God above will surely let me taste

The promised land as I daily embark to see His face

With steadfast patience and faith run this lifelong race

My darling with you I can endure everything and boldly chase

My noble dreams and desires with burning unquenchable fire

Delighting in you as we together walk hand in hand through

Trials and tribulations, no matter our socio-economic station

Because unconditional love sustains and brings transformation

Therefore I rejoice in my inner wealth, not outward accumulation.

Divine Comedy – Awaking Humanity

Life is a glorious divine comedy

Set forth by the all wise divinity

Continuously challenging humanity

To think again more thoroughly

To examine things more carefully

Before speaking forth prematurely

Before judging others presumptuously

Before rendering conclusions hastily

Because God above knows the heart of all

Without the Creator, no man can stand tall

For God above with love gives us breath daily

The Lord of life breathes within us spiritually

Dead our bodies are without the spirit inwardly

Igniting, inspiring, inviting, and illuminating

Cultivating, quickening, encouraging, and captivating

The Maker of heaven and earth in us gives new birth

To love, life, laughter, faith, hopes, dreams, and worth

Even self-worth as we realize in God’s image we are made

Hopefully sooner rather than later after we have fully paid

With our lives, blood, sweat, and tears spending all our years

Pursuing and chasing useless trivialties and incongruencies

As we progressively awaken to our own shallow insecurity

Without relationship with our Maker we dwell in obscurity

Therefore swallow your pride and exercise some humility

As you do and walk with God humbly, you shall live happily.

Soul Winning and Evangelism Training – Effective Outreach to Seek and Save Lost Souls, Church Growth

Soul winning and evangelism training with worldwide evangelist Paul F. Davis who has won souls across the globe touching over 50 countries and 6 continents.

http://www.PaulFDavis.com
RevivingNations@yahoo.com

Equip and empower your church to seek and save the lost. Unprecedented church growth, harvest of souls, and revival now!

Jesus said, “I will make you fishers of men” (Mark 1:17).

Fishing happens usually one of two ways: with a hook and a net.

I liken the net approach to fishing nations, going into all the world to “seek and save the lost” (see Luke 19:10). Yet the evangelist Philip was also skillful in one-on-one evangelism. Being led by the Spirit of God to leave a great revival full of multitudes of people where he was preaching in the city of Samaria, Philip was taken by God to Gaza on the backside of the desert to speak to an Ethiopian of great authority (see Acts 8).

The divine appointment orchestrated by God was beautifully arranged, because when Philip arrived and showed up the Ethiopian was reading the prophet Isaiah from the Bible (see Acts 8:26-29). Philip immediately asked him, “Do you understand what you are reading?” (v. 30)

Interestingly, Philip’s evangelistic approach began in the form of a question. Jesus was often no different in His approach. The Lord asked His disciple Peter, “Who do men say that I am? Who do you say that I am?” (see Matthew 16:13,15).

Here are some good soul winning and evangelism questions to use to open hearts in route to salvation when you converse with people on a daily basis.

– Have you discovered the grace of God?

– Have you ever felt burdened and weighed down by sin?

– Have you ever felt guilt and shame, but didn’t know what to do about it?

– Do you know how to be reconciled to your heavenly Father and experience the blessings of heaven?

– Have you experienced the embrace of our loving God?

– Do you know the fullness of life available to you in Jesus Christ?

– Have you experienced the joy of newness of life?

– Do you know the Prince of peace who quiets all stress and stress in your life? 

– Do you have any questions about God or things I can pray for you concerning?

– What is the best thing and the worst thing you have ever heard about God?

– Have you ever known religion and religious people to misrepresent the heart of God?

– How do you and your family feel about God?

Invite Paul to speak and minister in your city; conduct a soul winning training conference; lead an outreach to impact your community; and equip your church members to live victoriously.

A Beautiful Cardinal Flew Toward Me

As I walked into my bedroom what did I see?

I looked through the window in the distance

And to my great joy saw God answer for me

A personal prayer I had uttered weeks earlier

A simple and heartfelt request for a cardinal

A beautiful bird I had not seen in some time

Why I desired to see this beautiful red bird

I know not particularly, but it appealed to me

Perhaps cardinals in Florida are a bit of a rarity

Beyond the black birds and bluejays secondarily

From my days as a boy with a birdhouse out back

Sometimes the squirrels the bluejays would attack

Yet today this gorgeous cardinal with an orange beek

Was strangely still as he was listening for me to speak

Fully red from pointed fluffy head to luscious tail

Upon seeing this bird it made me feel quite well

Although in the distance sitting upon my fence

I somehow knew this lovely bird was God sent

For that Sunday in my office I had been writing

But not only writing, also whistling a worship song

A powerful church song in my spirit all the day long

Feeling a sense of sweet serendipity, I watched intently

When suddenly increasing my joy the bird flew to me

Drawing near to hear equally with intense curiosity

Surprisingly straight to me, directly toward the window

Stopping to rest just feet from me upon the clothes line

My spirit rejoiced within, my mind content and sublime

For not only was I aroused by nature but my loving Creator

Who truly answers my heartfelt prayer, proving He does care

Therefore I shall not be trapped by unbelief’s foul snare

Because I know my God knows atop my head every hair

My heavenly Father’s ears are open, His eyes looking down

Undoubtedly upon me His marvelous grace does abound.

Church Growth Consultant For Pastors and Congregations – 15 Reasons Why People Leave Your Church

It often baffles Pastors and church staff why people leave “their” church. Some folks visit and never return. Others who were a vital part of the church community suddenly disappear through the proverbial backdoor.

How can Pastors and church staff grow themselves to prevent loss of life in the church?
This is not only a compelling question, but also the very hinge that holds every congregation together. Life begins within. If the foundation is not strong and properly laid, it cannot sustain outward and ongoing growth.

Jesus said we spiritually know people like trees by their fruit or the lack thereof (see Matthew 7:16-20).

Here are some reasons people leave a church:

1. Lack of warmth, hospitality, and affirmation.

When you first walk into a church, what do you feel? What do you see? What do you hear? If there are no smiling greeters with a sweet spirit to welcome you, it is easy to wonder if you are even welcomed. People like to go where they are celebrated not merely tolerated.

Does your church make people feel like they are burdening or blessing you when they arrive? Do people feel safe or judged in your presence? Do you love people unconditionally, or do you have some ulterior motive driving you?

Die to your agenda and embrace the great commandment to love people.

People are wounded, hurt, and disillusioned. They need to be comforted and consoled. People need a loving touch, kind word, and a hug. A good word makes the heart glad (Proverbs 12:25 b).

Love, embrace, and affirm people in your midst. Many people attend church because they are hurting, feel lonely, and need to be encouraged. Don’t miss the divine appointment and send people away feeling worse than when they came to you.

2. Lack of joy and spiritual atmosphere.

The best way to create a healthy spiritual atmosphere is through praise and worship. Worship is a time when God becomes the focus and we die to ourselves. Only as people focus on the Lord do they quiet their souls and concerns. We all have innumerable cares and challenges, but as we uplift our Creator in worship the Presence of the Holy Spirit can attend to matters of the heart and sweep away all despair within.

Apart from the divine Presence of God’s Holy Spirit, church is nothing more than a religious social club void of God altogether. The Holy Spirit inhabits the praises of God’s people (Psalm 22:3). Therefore enter God’s glorious Presence with singing and gladness of heart (Psalm 100:2).

Fullness of joy is found in the Presence of the Lord (Psalm 16:11) as we open our hearts to the Lord and express our love for God. Joy is captivating and contagious! Truly the joy of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10), without which congregations die and diminish in number.

Remember God seeks those who worship Him (John 4:23). God prospers those who serve Him (Psalm 35:27). Grudgingly serving God however is burdensome. Only as we receive God’s love and embrace His heart for us, can we be inspired to worship the Lord our Maker. As God’s love and life is adequately expressed and exalted during worship, we are touched and transformed in the Presence of the Lord (see 1 Samuel 10:9; Ezekiel 36:26-27).

3. Lack of an enriching word from God to build their lives.

The Word of God’s grace builds people up, carrying them into the arms of a loving heavenly Father and empowering them to enter their personal promised land (see Acts 20:32). Churches that become overly encumbered with announcements, exhortations to give, and shouting from the pulpit often lack the nourishing Word of God.

Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). Feed the sheep Jesus has entrusted to you with the milk and meat of the Word of God (see John 21:17; 1 Peter 2:2).

4. Lack of a family environment and sense of community.

Families with children want to feel secure and know that their children will be cared for. An excellent and clean nursery with professional staff is vital to instill confidence within people that you genuinely care for their family. Ministries for youth of all ages and adults with various interests all create affinity and a sense of community.

As fellow citizens in the kingdom of God we must endeavor to rejoice in the commonwealth and embrace the household of faith (see Ephesians 3:15). As we do we shall unite and rejoice together as a precious family in God that is one in Spirit.

5. Lack of meaningful ministry opportunities.

As people grow and mature spiritually they want to be able to use their gifts, talents, and abilities to serve. Amazingly, people grow more in six months when doing ministry than in six years of receiving ministry. Otherwise boredom sets in and quarreling will begin among the ranks. The church of the living God is both a family and an army. When the army serves purposefully, they are too focused and tired to fight one another. When the army sits and does nothing, they get frustrated and angrily speak against its leaders without a clearly communicated vision.

Jesus came not to receive ministry, but to minister to others (Matthew 20:28). It is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35).

6. Lack of vision, focus, and purpose for the congregation and its members.

Church leaders must grow in God’s grace and ability to communicate “heavenly vision” and divine direction (see Acts 26:19). We must “purpose in the spirit” as God directs us through prayer (see Acts 19:21).

Jesus came to “seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10). Jesus told His disciples to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:20). We therefore must touch people locally, while also reaching to impact nations globally (see Acts 1:8). As we do so our communities will be impacted and our church members will grow as we “go into all the world to preach the good news” of Jesus (Mark 16:15).

7. Excessive competition, pride, and backbiting among church members.

When a worldwide vision is not imparted to God’s people, they become focused on and bicker about trivial things of no eternal consequence. Murmuring and complaining cut off the life flow of God’s Spirit and quench the warmth within a congregation. Pastors and leaders should be peacemakers and make haste to put out small fires before they spread and do great damage (Matthew 5:9; Hebrews 12:15; Ecclesiastes 9:18).

People have enough drama in their professional and family life. They go to church to get away from drama, not encounter and be overwhelmed with more of it.

Jesus is the Prince of Peace and God’s kids are peacemakers (see Isaiah 9:6-7; Matthew 5:9). God is love (1 John 4:16), which is first shown through patience (1Corinthians 13). If we say we are born of God, than let us be patient with others as they mature and grow in divine grace.

8. Lack of fathering and mentoring from the Pastor and church staff.

Churches across the country are full of teachers, orators, and preachers. Few however make themselves accessible to the people to touch them at a deep level. The apostle Paul acknowledged this tendency among ministers himself (see 1 Corinthians 4:15). Jesus showed His disciples the Father heart of God (see John 14:8-9). If we want to truly nourish and see people grow, we must give of ourselves to people (see 1 Thessalonians 2:8). Otherwise we are nothing more than a hired hand that cannot be trusted (see John 10:13)

9. Unorganized church life

People need clarity and things to be done orderly so they can follow along as participants (see 1Corinthians 14:40). The best airports are those that are well organized and clearly laid out. Otherwise being unable to discern directions, facilities, and resources one can become frustrated and discouraged. This is how many church members feel.

10. Insufficient fun activities to be social and make friends.

People like to have fun and be entertained. Jesus came to give us abundant life not merely church (see John 10:10). God is a Creator. Be creative and make things fun for people. Otherwise they will go somewhere else. Remember God is both happy and holy. Embrace and exemplify both in your life.

11. No sense of adventure and personal challenge to grow.

Jesus had His disciples leave the comfort zone and “launch out’ into the unknown (see Luke 5:4). Only as we are stretched do we grow. Physical strength comes through resistance training at the gym. Life and ministerial challenges should be encouraged, as they will bring about unprecedented growth in people.

Be like Jesus. Refuse to let your church members stagnate and stink. Keep them moving and give them opportunity to use their giftings.

12. Overwhelming amount of pressure to give resources, time, and talents.

The media and corporate world have made merchandise of people. Consumerism and comparison saturates nearly every level of society, as we are made to compare ourselves with others. Feeling and flipping between being haves and have-nots dwarfs our true identity, while thwarting and hindering our divine purpose.

The Church of Jesus Christ is the one place where humanity ought to be able to sit down and rest without feeling as if they are being made merchandise of (see Psalm 23:1-2; Ezekiel 34:1-4). To fleece and rape God’s sheep for personal financial gain, ministerial fame, and simply to fulfill your dream is insensitive and a misuse of the divine vocation to which we have been called.

Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit when taking offerings, presenting needs, and recruiting volunteers. Don’t twist arms and apply undo pressure by making people feel guilty. Let the Lord speak to His people, which if He does not perhaps you either need to work a bit harder to fill in the gaps or maybe lay down a personal agenda God may not be blessing.

13. Lack of genuine interest from the Pastor and staff in the personal life of its members.

Jesus took a genuine interest in people. He spoke in parables to properly relate and enter their world. Too often we are irrelevant and clueless pertaining to the lives of our people. Jesus asked questions to gauge where people were in their lives.

Jesus asked, “What do you want me to do for you?” (Matthew 20:32)

14. Ego and individualistic mentality among the Pastor and church ministers hinders the life flow.

This mentality breeds spiritual poverty and animosity within church members. As pride, comparison, competition, and ego become king sincerity and transparency leave. Thereafter walls are erected relationally throughout the congregation as people endeavor to protect and project their image, after which genuine life flow ceases to exist.

15. Lack of humility and service in the hearts of Pastors and leadership.

Jesus said the chief leader should become the servant of all (see Matthew 20:25-26). Lack of heartfelt service flowing from leadership breeds distrust and causes a disconnection among the people. Arrogance always eventually alienates people.

“By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, honor, and life” (Proverbs 22:4).

Manifest these in your life and church leadership and all will be well within your congregation. People emulate what they see in their leaders. There shall be like people, like priest (see Hosea 4:9).

Islam and Muslim Protests in London, UK, and Europe – Impotence, Intolerance, and Violence

I received an email this morning picturing Muslims protesting on the streets of London, England with anger in their hearts, hatred in their mouths, and slogans of violence on signs in their hands. Is this the heart of God? I think not.
Among the disheartening images I saw, the unforgettable words on the signs read:
“Europe you will pay. Demolition is on its way.”
“Europe you will pay. Your extermination is on its way.”
“Butch those who mock Islam.”
“Europe is the cancer. Islam is the answer.”
“Islam will dominate the world.”
“Europe take some lessons from 9/11.”
“Europe you will pay. Your 9/11 is on its way.”
“Be prepared for the real holocaust.”
“Massacre those who insult Islam.”
“Exterminate those who insult Islam.”
“Behead those who insult Islam.”
“Slay those who insult Islam.”
They who seek to defend their religion with violence prove to the world that God is not in it. Cannot God defend Himself without human help? I think so. Yet when God is not in a man-made religion, religious followers must arise to kill, compel, and constrain people to obey its rigid and frigid tenets.  
God is love and will defend the glory of His Name! 
 
Have you forgotten “Thou shalt not take the Lord’s name in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless” (Exodus 20:7).  Muslims, Americans, Christians, and anyone who advocates killing in God’s name does not know the Lord (John 16:1-3). God Himself will uphold the honor of His name and judge those who advocate killing in His holy Name. God is a life giver, not a killer.
Jesus did not come to destroy lives, but to save lives (John 3:17).
They who kill innocent blood, there blood will be shed (Genesis 9:6).
 
What we tolerate will dominate. If the British permit this type of behavior on their streets, it will persist until they become fed up and swiftly deal with these evildoers.  Until the British awake to the backsliddeness of their hearts and destitute spiritual condition, Islamic fundamentalism and protests such as this on their streets must continue to intensify to get their attention. Spiritual battles require spiritual wisdom, power, love, and discipline to win (see 2 Corinthians 10:3-6).
 
The British must awake, arise, and boldly confront evil lest they be overtaken by it!
As for your remarks about political candidates, the hope of America and the world is not in elections but in Jesus Christ and His church.  Political candidates only serve to reveal the spiritual state of the people who elect them.

Do we need to insult Islam? It seems they who claim to be Muslims are already doing a pretty good job.

Wonderful Holy Spirit, blessed Holy Spirit of the living God

Breathe afresh upon me, make my life what it ought to be

Burn away the sin, flesh, rebellion, and stubbornness in me

Take my life to the heights of heaven so I can dwell with Thee

Give me a delightful and sustaining taste of inescapable eternity

Lift my head high above the pain of the past so I might fully be

All that you created me to fulfill throughout my life and destiny

As you come gracious Holy Spirit and patiently work mightily in me

Take this little boy, make him an honorable man, rewrite his life story.

Extreme Prophetic – Your Paradigm Shift

The prophetic is always most wonderful
As the people on earth become spiritual
Move beyond the flesh and past the soul
Awaken within to their divine identity
Get clear on things and are made whole
The prophetic is more fun than the Super Bowl
Reclaim from them what fear and demons
Have over time cleverly and subtly stole
The prophetic uplifts you from depression’s hole
Perhaps inquisitively and rightly you say, “How so?”
Well, the prophetic reconnects you to the Creator
Quieting you within to hear your Maker’s voice
The voice of the Lord is power setting you free
Making you rejoice and dance within happily
As the breakthrough by the Holy Spirit comes
Into your glorious God given purpose you run
Becoming acquainted with your divine identity
You simultaneously awaken to your destiny
Both the eternal and earthly equally abundantly
As God gives you eyes to supernaturally see
Ears to intuitively inwardly connect and hear
Causing the priceless voice of God to be near
Near and dear, the Holy Spirit removes fear
Bringing forth supernatural operations and weapons
Empowering you mightily within to arise and win
Every battle you face, as you see the Lord’s face
Run the race, that He’s mapped out before you
Taking you from glory to glory, faith to faith
Strength to strength, and loving grace to grace
Enabling you to transcend every earthly limitation
As you feast on divine knowledge and revelation
Move in the miraculous bringing forth manifestations
To awaken skeptics, silence critics, and live in the fullness
Of Christ the King of glory, the captain of the hosts
Christ our portion, in whom our soul makes its boast.

O Ambassadors – Free The Children

I just watched Monday’s inspiring episode of Oprah partnering with Free The Children in Kenya forming O Ambassadors to build schools across the impoverished parts of the world. What’s special about this is the ambassadors are kids still in school here in America themselves desirious of changing their world.

As someone who has been to Africa 5 times, working in war-torn east Africa, I know firsthand the needs there. Kenya is just the beginning and actually one of the more prosperous countries in the region. Beyond Kenya, I also visited war-torn nations such as Rwanda, Burundi, Congo, Uganda, and Mozambique. I remember seeing on TV years ago how one woman gave birth in a tree in Mozambique during a flood. Between Rwanda and Burundi during the genocide that plagued the small countries in 1994, 1.2 million people were slaughtered between tribal factions. I visited the site of the massacre and was heart broken to see the animosity that still exists.

My other African stops over 5 different trips also took me to Malawi, where a dictatorial President in power for 25 years forbid women to wear pants. Then in Tanzania just above Kenya I saw new development as they sought to catch up with developing Kenya.  As for Congo it has been ravished for years due to its rich mineral resources, blood diamonds, and mercenaries fighting for personal gain.

O Ambassadors is a bold move I commend, which shall change the world and the youth launching out into the deep to do so. Not only are youth going abroad and awaking to the blessings of America we so often take for granted, but they are being changed in the process as they enrich the lives of others.

The American church has lost the concept and importance of overseas missions as we build fancier buildings for ourselves to dwell in, but the true heart of God is about “seeking and saving the lost” (Luke 19:10) in the “uttermost parts of the earth” (Acts 1:8). Nothing is more important for children then to grow up with access to proper education and clean water.
