Acts 1:8

(Some of you will understand the following post, some of you won't. Sunny: you asked to be notified of disturbing content...well here's the following for ya!!!)

I like to think of myself as board tamago. Like something that fits under one of the pillars. Until now I was thinking "I'm surely JTB...cause I like interacting with people and especially Jetts and JRs and stuff (not that I'm come so far from that yet myself)...and I can imagine that shepherding (little people) would be something I'd really be fulfilled doing."
But I've been getting it all wrong. I've finally found my nitch. Niche? Nietzsche?
I'm a CGO TAMAGO!!!
Yessir, I have found my place, and it's a witnesser. I'd rather not go into the details of what kinds and where, when, for how long, to whom and under what temperatures--but I hope to have a vision for witnessing of all kinds...to do one and not to leave the other undone. But most of all, I want to be Activated.

(Jesus:) Heed My call to you now! Take up arms to join this battle to flood the world with My truth. Fill your arms, your bags, and your cupboards with the life-giving Words that work wonders! Feed the sheep, attract them to the truth of My Words. Use whatever means I show you in your situation--whether it's to hit the streets with Activate(d) mags, to hit the schools with children's books, or to hid the stores with CDs and CD cards. There are no limits! There are no fences! There are simply open doors everywhere, just begging to be walked through!


I've been going through the CGO handbook (huge thick volume of holiness) and the above and a whole score of other quotes were pulled from there. I've been spending every waking moment reading it. It makes me so full of new energy that I tap my fingers and I tap my feet. Man, it's life, man!

The spirit of Leghargy is manifested by...people who do witness, who do get out and distribute tools, maybe even have Bible classes, but who aren't instant witnesses--who don't make sure to carry tracts everywhere they go or make sure to give some kind of witness to every person they encounter.


(Yikesers!)

I wish for all of you, My children, to understand that your faithfulness in witnessing is a great key to My blessings in many areas. I have promised to speak Words of revelation and direction to you. I have promised to make you a financial power, I have promised to lead and guide you in the way that you should go. There are so many blessings--multitudes of blessings that I have in My hand, ready at any moment to pour forth!
So many of these blessings will be reached through tiny, obscure doors. So many of the keys to future fruitfulness, productivity and happiness begin with tiny steps that seem insignificant at the time. Much of your great influence to come, the supply of your needs, and even the finances you seek, will come through avenues that in the beginning are hidden obscure, and even ridiculous in the eyes of man.

There is so much more ahead as you catch the vision more than ever, as you give it all you've got, and as you make Activated your priority. Make it the center of your home. It can involve everyone, and it really should if it's going to have the impact on the Family and the world that it needs to have. You should be praying about how you can involve everyone--the kids, the mommies, the cooks, the teens--and what part they can play. It'll turn the Home around and give everyone the spark and enthusiasm that's needed! You'll be doing your part, so the Lord can do His and fulfill His promises. Now isn't that exciting?

Activated isn't just a magazine--it's a way of life! Activated for the Lord is what each of you need to be! No matter what else happens in the Family, or what other goals and changes and pushes and whatnot come up, being witnesses who feed the sheep will always remain your number one priority--from this time forth, even unto the end of the world!

A long-winded rant about witnessing to come...when I have time to organize my excited thoughts.
(Just in case you're wondering, the young man in the photo above is Jesse, very good friend of mine.)

Well, at least for me, it was only because of the Feast that I actually tore myself away from reading -- & now I'm back at it again!

You can't judge how large ur readership is by the comments, either. I don't comment on half the posts by my estimate, but I read'm all (& that's not an exaggeration).

I would've thought CGO for u, too, if I had to class u. The Lord's given u a gift, Flo. Glad to see u're investing in it!
