The Vast Expanse Of Real Love
The first thing you and I can agree upon is that we each have a deep desire to be loved. Of all the things men seek in this world, there is nothing deeper than the hope for someone who would personally know and love you.
Like the waters of a broken dam, a torrent of uncontrollable circumstances knocks everyone into a life driven by pretense to cover the reality of hidden pain. Relationships and jobs grow sour and what once provided a spark of hope becomes a memory of depression. So much useless religion everywhere does nothing to provide an ounce of practical help; just empty words about lofty ideals. They claim the answer is to repeat a prayer, or just go along with their system. Go to a building every Sunday to get their sermon and give your money. Then act like they act. So if “what you see is what you get” then you must ask yourself ; “Is that really how I want to be?”
So what’s different here? Well it does not come down to what we’re saying but what we’re LIVING! Actually, WHO you can see living through us. He is found, not in today’s “churches” or groups, but, solely through direct approach to Him, the living Person of Jesus.
The human is not made of steel but profoundly fragile emotion and thoughts. We think of tragedy as another man’s plight, then, out of nowhere, a “hurricane” of anger or lust can arise from inside or some unseen issue from outside can wipe out everything we thought was our security. How then does the love of an invisible God practically descend into the resolution of all these issues? The message, and revelation we share here is solely derived from an uncommon love that is not concerned with being accepted by others. We offer you REAL answers that we are living, that we have received directly from the living Jesus! God wants to bring you into His complete redemption and a new life as His son or daughter.

Why The “Churches” Are A Joke.
Sometimes people ask why we say the “Churches” are a joke. Notice our emphasis on the [tooltip tip=”Scare quotes are quotation marks placed around a word or phrase to imply that it may not signify its apparent meaning or that it is not necessarily the way the quoting person would express its concept. Thus, the quotes are used to establish a use–mention distinction, in a similar way as verbally prefixing a phrase with ‘so-called’. When referred to as ‘scare quotes’, the quotation marks are suggested to imply skepticism or disagreement with the quoted terminology.”]quotation marks[/tooltip] indicating a double-meaning. So let us explain. What we see today refereed to as “church” is NOT at all what Paul had in mind when he said “Do not forsake …gathering together…”(Heb. 10:29). It is not AT ALL what one sees in the Book of Acts. The church, “ones called out of the world” (eclesia in Grk.), are not those who have an affiliation with any one of the established denominations. The true church is not a pre-fixed order of rituals and traditions. Jesus warns that those who claim to be “Christians” may not be Christian whatsoever ([tooltip tip=”15 ‘Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits. ‘Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’”]Mt.7:15-24[/tooltip] [tooltip tip=”41 ‘Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.'”]25:41[/tooltip])!! Fat cat ‘Pastor Bob’, with Alice on the organ, delivering a program and demanding “tithes” is not exactly “fellowship” with “the Bride of Christ”. Agreed? It’s a joke!
In these last days personal discernment is crucial (Mt.7:1). We live in days where there are over 300,000 so-called “churches”. These are an outrage to the majesty of the true church. What the majority have come to accept as normal is absurd in light of God’s revelation. Tens of thousands of so-called-pastors fill the airwaves tickling men’s ears with Christian rhetoric everyone wants to hear. They say “Jesus this… “ and “Jesus that..” and everyone thinks they know what they are talking about. This has nothing to do with the TRUTH. This is not the Church of the living Christ as revealed in the New Testament (Matt.7:15, [tooltip tip=”6 And He said to them, “Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far away from Me. 7 ‘But in vain do they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.’ 8 Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men.” 9 He was also saying to them, “You are experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition. “]Mk.7:6-9[/tooltip], Lk.6:26, Jn.4:24, Acts 7:48, 17:24, 2Cor.6:14ff, 2Tim.3:5).
GOD’S LOVE WITHOUT TRUTH IS NOT LOVE AND GOD’S TRUTH WITHOUT LOVE IS NOT TRUTH.
Jesus lived as love incarnate. Yet the truth He spoke drove men to rage and to accuse Him of being possessed by a demon (Jn.8:48). Satan is both brilliant and subtle. He knows he can not keep men from hearing the gospel so he crafted an end-time counterfeit (2 Cor. 11:4,14/Mt.24:11, Mk.13:22, 2 Cor.11:13-14, Rev.12:9). Today Jesus is equated with “church”.
We are preach “Jesus” and people react “Church, church, church”. Jesus says whatever fills a man’s heart is what comes out of his mouth. A defensive and reactionary “Church, church, church…” attitude exposes that IT, not Jesus, is their focus. So you see, we are not “anti-church” but for the truth of Jesus. Some say “Well certain churches may be flawed but you can’t judge them all”. The true Church is flawless (Eph.5:27).
The tragic outcome of the false gospel (i.e. just “accept Christ” prayer formula) is that a person thinks he is a Christian without meeting Jesus. His life is based on sermons and rhetoric with no personal revelation of God’s Word. So the response is; “I already got IT. Been there done that. Don’t tell me, I go to (went to) ‘church’.” Think about it, would this be the response of someone who is in love with the living God?
That they may be one Father as you and I are one.
We are eight people who face the same things you do every day but are enabled to react from a totally different perspective built into us by a supernatural work of the living God. We are simply a family. We have invested our lives into caring about others. All our money comes from jobs that we work. We greatly appreciate any support. We have traveled to more than 40 countries and hundreds of cities. We have labored for the souls of the homeless, and for the rich, for prisoners, and politicians. God’s love is not empty doctrine or poetic sentiment. When you act He acts! We have countless personal stories of His undeniable intervention into our most intimate struggles. He cares about YOU! There is nothing greater than the profound joy of serving Jesus. It is not a quest for a place in this world but for a city soon to descend out of the sky; New Jerusalem! We have no hidden agenda or knowledge other than what God’s Word offers to all men. Yes, many of the things we share may initially seem “judgmental” or insensitive. Life is not a feel-good movie. It’s an all out warfare. Love does not allow us to “be nice”. The consequences are tragic. Our message is not intended to make you feel good but to save your soul from hell. We offer you the REALITY OF JESUS through all the music, videos, photos and everything here that we have [tooltip tip=”We have taken all the photos here during our travels. All the graphics we have personally made. The music is our music, same with the videos. Each one of us looks to personally express our love for Him and His love for us in any way that we can. “]personally created[/tooltip] as the frequencies of His Mystery.
Redemption may seem like an irrelevant religious word but it simply means turning something bad into something profound. It is the “antidote” that every human needs for the “virus” of regret. This is what God wants to do with you. He offers not only absolute forgiveness but redemption for all things in your life if you surrender to Him. You don’t need to confess your sins to another sinner or say a “sinners prayer”. Jesus took on all sin, past, present and future and on the cross said “It is finished” (Jn.19:30,[tooltip tip=”He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; ‘by his wounds you have been healed’.”]1Pet.2:24[/tooltip]). You may “know” this, but can you honestly say that know this? Forgiveness is only realized by faith IN HIM (read: [tooltip tip=”In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. “]Eph.1:7[/tooltip], [tooltip tip=”Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due.But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness…”]Rom.4:4[/tooltip]).
Your life is ‘on the clock’. Forget what others say. Think for yourself. Get alone. God has given you a brain that He wants to “anoint” to supply you with a vision that will make you stand up and marvel. There really is a DIVINE CONNECTION waiting for you. It’s not about trying to emulate a morality or become a do gooder. It’s about you getting down to the nitty gritty of humility and transparency. Ask Jesus to be born again. God is not going to rip you off and let you rot. Rather He promises “living water” running within your inner most being! Better than any drug, joint or a beer. Every time you let God’s appeal slip away you lose the time you could be walking and learning in a Father’s love. How many days or years will you throw away or gain?
God says “Your greatest dream is my promise”[tooltip tip=”Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.”](2Cor.2:9)[/tooltip].
So what do you think: would God, Who created a spectacular universe and ocean then create man to work a job 8-5?
Not quite. You are far too important to Him to waste your life on a world whose only guaranteed reward is your name written on a grave stone. The Creator has invested Himself in the creation of your eyes, ears, voice, mind and complex physiology. There are dreams waiting for you to have and live. There are people who will never be the same because they have received your touch. Children who have no parents yearn to hear one of your jokes or held next to your face.
A complex world finds answers from simple love. This is the one thing you already have and require no degree or sophisticated training. Now, all you need is a heart for God to get you where you need to be. The reality is that everything we have been taught since childhood is wrong. Your identity is not to be found in living for yourself but living for others. To know who you are requires that you surrender your life for His life (Rm.6:6/Jn.12:24-25). To become a father you must first become a son (Gal.4:6).
You must rise above the thinking of the commoner in order to gain the heights of a new perspective.
There are influences from your parents, friends, leaders and heros of the world. . Yet Jesus boldly declares that “I will send the Comforter and He will lead you into all truth……” (Jn. 14:26). What, or Who, in the world is the Holy Spirit? Is “it”a feeling, Pentecostal hoot and holler revival unction, or some mystical floating dove? Could there actually be Someone Who wants to help you in the most powerful and edifying manner you could never imagine? How will you ever know if you do not ever probe this revelation from Jesus? As you read the cited Scritpures what do you have to lose by asking specifically for His response? As if Jesus did not already do enough by going to the cross, He also sent the “Counselor” to personally instruct and lead His followers (Jn.14:27, 1Jn.2:27). The Spirit is not a feeling or inclination. He is an actual Person Who, although completely invisible, will come upon you. He does so through the “sixth sense” of FAITH (i.e. beyond your five natural senses). This “sense”is developed and trained after one is “born from above” (Jn.3:3ff,4:24/1 Cor.2:11).
