Laying Down the Law – Part 3

Laying Down the Law – Part 3

The Father’s Plan What is the Father’s ultimate thought in regard to mankind? We must answer this question if we are to perceive the Law’s role in the greater scheme of things. We can find the Father’s mind concerning man in the first chapter of the Bible. Genesis 1:26-28Then God said, "Let Us...

Laying Down the Law – Part 2

Laying Down the Law – Part 2

A Wider View This is the second book in which I have included a chapter titled “A Wider View.” I have found that certain kingdom truths are difficult to comprehend unless we first envision the grand panoramic scope of Yahweh’s works and plans. When we focus narrowly on a subject, apart from...

Laying Down the Law – Part 1

Laying Down the Law – Part 1

Foreword A word of explanation is necessary at the start of this book. In this work you will find this writer using names in reference to God the Father and God the Son that are more faithful to their Hebrew original than the names and titles generally in use by the church today. The name Yah, or...

Freemasonry Unveiled

I am posting 9 separate videos on Freemasonry. They are all by the same individual, and are parts of 1 large video that I watched a little over a month ago. The single, large video is no longer available.  I do highly recommend that all readers of this blog watch these videos. As you do, you will...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 35 – A People for His Praise

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 35 – A People for His Praise

When we moved to our new home in Byron our family had been battling sickness for a few weeks. Some condition similar to bronchitis had been passed around from one member to another, and I had come down with it about a week before our move. Tony also was afflicted with it at this time. I did not...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 34 – Understanding Comes

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 34 – Understanding Comes

When I discerned that God would once more have us to move I began meeting regularly with my family to pray for God’s direction and provision to be made known. We were specific in those things we asked for. In particular, we desired a house with at least three bedrooms so Kristin and Josiah might...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 33 – A Season of Grace

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 33 – A Season of Grace

We had been in Montezuma, Georgia for four months. Our time had started off with great promise, but had ended with tremendous disappointment. I had felt certain that the Lord would use this people as a core group to begin to raise up a people to His praise. I had prayed for such a people for ten...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 32 – My Son, My Son!

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 32 – My Son, My Son!

I mentioned that we were to know one more final, agonizing test before we left our home on Levie Road. It began the day the Sheriff arrived to tell us we would have to be out in three days, and this test would be brief, but intense. As soon as the Sheriff left I told my family that we would indeed...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 31 – The Threat of Eviction

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 31 – The Threat of Eviction

After being in this home on Levie Road for a month it came time to pay for another month’s rent. Once more God’s provision did not include money to pay the rent on time. I was really grieved by this, and I argued with God some concerning this matter. I reminded Him that we had asked that if it was...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 30 – Eights and Sevens

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 30 – Eights and Sevens

God delights to speak to me through numbers, and He gave us some significant ones at this time. After receiving the money from the brother in Canada, I paid our telephone bill, electric bill and all other bills up to date, as well as buying some groceries. When I balanced our checkbook to see how...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 28 – The Storm Comes

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 28 – The Storm Comes

Just before moving to our home in Montezuma a thought came to me one day, that I rejected as being from the Father. The thought was that God would not release His provision for us in our new home until I had shared the gospel of Christ with my neighbor who lived across the street. My neighbor was...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 27 – Storm Warning

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 27 – Storm Warning

I felt we had done well in this episode as we had placed ourselves unreservedly into the Father’s hands, knowing that if He did not come through for us, we would be in a real mess. We had stood faithful against that tyrant called time, and had continued to look to the Father to deliver us. Yet at...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 26 – Pouring Water on the Altar

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 26 – Pouring Water on the Altar

When the Lord instructed us to place both feet in the water, and then He confirmed His instruction with the story of Rees Howells standing in the queue to purchase tickets, I felt like the Lord would probably take us down to the wire before manifesting His provision for us. Rees Howells had two...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 25 – A Growing Hope

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 25 – A Growing Hope

April 23rd came and, as it was a Wednesday, there was a meeting of the church that night which I desired to attend. We had little gas in the car and no money to purchase more. My wife was invited to attend a ladies sewing meeting that morning with members of this same fellowship, but things were...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 24 – Both Feet In

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 24 – Both Feet In

As my working hours at the college were dwindling I came to sense that a transition was coming again and that the Father would lead us out once more to trust Him entirely for our provision. I also began to once more feel a lack of desire to remain where God had temporarily placed me as a college...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 23 – A Titus 2 Woman

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 23 – A Titus 2 Woman

In the months that followed our time on Jekyll Island, where My wife and I celebrated our sixteenth wedding anniversary, the Lord continued to bring about many new beginnings in our home. We had not been in our townhouse long, and I had only been teaching college classes a short time, when God...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 22 – A Whisper on the Wind

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 22 – A Whisper on the Wind

I was eventually able to pay my landlord the rent, though I was paying it at the end of the month, rather than at the beginning. This continued for some time until in the fall of 2002 my work load was decreased again to ten hours a week. The Holy Spirit still would not allow me to find other work...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 21 – Saul’s Branch

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 21 – Saul’s Branch

Before going on to tell about my experiences after I left my college teaching job, I feel it necessary to speak about some significant things that happened while I was still employed. God did not take a break from molding and shaping this son of His during the two years He graciously allowed me to...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 20 – A Sudden Opening

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 20 – A Sudden Opening

I need not have worried where we would go after we left Jekyll Island, for while we were there our friends Randy and Barbara Barnes e-mailed us and said they would like us to come and park our motorhome at their house. It was a great relief to me to know we had somewhere to go next. I was down to...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 19 – Jekyll Island

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 19 – Jekyll Island

It was a great feeling to be heading down the road in our motorhome, towing our car behind us. I had a sense of tremendous freedom. God had taken us through our year of Jubilee, releasing us from all financial bondage, and all attachments to this world, which had tied us down to one location. I...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 18 – New Beginnings

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 18 – New Beginnings

Despite the agony we knew in Payne City, I told the Lord I was willing to stay there as long as He desired. I looked to Him to provide the money to pay the rent of $500 a month, if He desired that we should stay longer than the six weeks we were offered free. The money never came in, and, about a...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 17 – Pain City

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 17 – Pain City

It was the middle of September, 2000 when God moved us to Payne City. It had been six months since I had been cast out of my place of ministry at Living Faith, and although I had quit attending at that time, Tony continued to go week after week, taking our children with her. Tony had received much...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 16 – A Fresh Start

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 16 – A Fresh Start

We arrived back in Georgia and returned to stay with our friends, the Barnes family. I told Tony what the Lord had spoken to me about getting our finances in order, but she was terrified about the prospect of declaring bankruptcy. I told her we were shortly going to be forced into it anyways, by...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 15 – A Perfect Provision

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 15 – A Perfect Provision

When I left the Houston Healthcare Complex in October of 1999 after fourteen years of service, I was able to cash out my accrued vacation time, and the money from this carried us for a couple months. An annual gift from family, and then a tax refund, came in right on time and carried us through...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 14 – A Cutter of Grass

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 14 – A Cutter of Grass

I did not yet understand many of the ways in which God works when He leads people into their possession. A lot of the things I am sharing with you I learned in hindsight as I looked back and meditated upon what God had done. I understood the requirement for faith to be manifested before God’s...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 13 – The Struggle Continues

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 13 – The Struggle Continues

When Judith had prophesied to me, while I was standing in the midst of my fellow ministers, she had no idea that my first name was Joseph. Everyone at Living Faith knew me by my middle name, which was Bradley, and most simply called me Brad. It was to be a few months later, when God called me to...

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 12 – Follow Your Dreams

Evidence of Things Unseen, Chapter 12 – Follow Your Dreams

Once Yahweh begins to lead us into the land of our inheritance, the road leads ever onward. We must go from faith to faith, ever trusting the Lord for a further victory until all the enemies are driven out and we are dwelling securely in the land of promise. Though God may give us a time of...
