Family News – October, 2013

Dear Ones,

We have another month’s “mailbag” filled with the well-deserved praises of our God!  Before going much further in sharing this month’s Family News, I want to share a note that the pilot group received from John and then I need to clarify a couple of subtle but necessary changes in how I prepare our mail for publication.

A note from John:

Dear ones…what we see developing in the Follow Me Family that none of us could have imagined or planned to create and develop…is a great example of God’s sovereign, incomprehensible Wisdom and Creativity.

 Before any of us ever knew each other or were put together by the Holy Spirit…God had designed and created us for what He had in mind to do with all of us, once we came together. He saw to our growth and development as individuals. He saw to all the ingredients He wanted to be put into our unique, individual preparation for what He had in mind in our futures. And He saw to our ongoing protection over the years.

 Then…He began to join us to each other. He joined other people that were in His plans to me, and He joined me to other people…and that’s how we all became a part of Christ-Life and FMM and Adat and where each of us is today. God began to put us together…some from here, some from Africa, some from Europe, some from the Middle East, etc. etc.

 And once we all began to receive input from the ingredients that make up the FMM Family, Father began to mix together all of the ‘ingredients’ that our years of preparation had put into us…into one new ‘blend’, the Follow Me Ministry. Only He knew what the sum total of all those ingredients was to be, and what results He was going to produce. Only He knew the proper sequences of which ingredients were to be mixed, and how, and when. Only He knew the proper amounts and the necessary means by which all of those ingredients were to be properly developed, aged, mixed and blended.

 And once the ingredients began to be mixed together, they began to interact and affect each other in a totally supernatural ‘chemical chain reaction’ of cause and effect, cause and effect, cause and effect. And now, finally we are becoming aware of all that God has been doing over the years. We can see something awesome developing in our midst and all around us. And it is moving faster and faster and getting bigger and bigger.

 The awesome part of it is…none of us had a clue as to what our lives were leading up to. None of us has a clue as to what to call this or how to define it or what we can expect to see happening in the days to come.

 That’s because we’re not doing it. This is not our product. It was not in our plans. So it is not up to us to try to direct, control or manage it. It is a sovereign work of God and only He knows what it is and what He wants to do with it. Only He should receive the credit because only He has made it happen. Only He knows what He wants to do with it to prepare His people for the Last Days.

 But one thing we can and should do is this: Let’s begin to intercede for all of us, in all seriousness. Please pray continually for this awesome ever-growing Family. Pray that FMM is able to finish the course that God has set before it. Pray that it can fulfill its God-given purpose to the fullest extent…to Perfection…so that Father’s heart may be totally pleased and blessed, and so that God may have the fullest possible reward for all the suffering He had to undergo to save, redeem and restore His Creation. Intercede and praise, glorify, worship and thank Him. For He and He alone is worthy of our entire service and devotion and only He deserves the entire focus of our attention.)

 Shalom Forever!

John

And a Family News clarification from Nancy:

You will recall when we first launched the Family News section, I had committed that after I removed all identifiers for your safety’s sake, I would not edit content, but instead I would share your stories in your own words.  I wasn’t going to ‘cut and paste’ or make grammatical or spelling corrections because we wanted to honor our FMM family members whether you were fluent in English or not.  And I have to tell you, I hold you each in the highest regard when it comes to your use of our native language here in the USA.  I could not begin to try to communicate in a second language so please know that you have my utmost respect.  And you still have my commitment not to interfere in anything you share any more than I have to.  Which leads me to the “have to” part…

In the few short years that Father has been building Covenant level relationship in our midst and knitting our FMM family together heart to heart, the substance of many of our emails has become more intimate and detail filled.  And where I used to be able to include an entire message, removing only a few words, I now find myself withholding complete phrases and/or sentences because they reveal too much information that could be used against you by the enemies of our God and His life changing Gospel.  You still have my solemn promise to do whatever I can to preserve your messages exactly as you send them, and you have my solemn promise to do whatever is in my power in protecting you, your reputations, your livelihoods, and your very lives.

One other thought regarding any Hebrew content within the Family News… Because Adat and FMM writings and teachings refer to and often include Hebrew words, concepts or understandings, we are beginning to see some Hebrew come back in our family mail.  For example, some have sent greetings to John as “Achi” (brother) or “Av” (father) or closed their emails with the traditional “Shalom!” (peace).  For the sake of continuity and not giving the serpent any opportunity to sow seeds of doubt about perceived favoritism or national preferences among us, we will treat these the same way we do any other languages – they’ll either be translated into English or left out if the wording exceeds my limited Hebraic vocabulary.

I would also like to invite you to consider an option when you write in.  I want you to feel free to add a quick note to the bottom of any email that you would prefer we not include in the Family News.  We had one this month that I was asked not to publish.  But it contained one sentence that was a great exhortation and encouragement and so I emailed back to request permission to share just that part and I was graciously given that permission.

So that takes care of the ‘housekeeping’ details.  Now on to the incredible stories of Father’s everlasting love and faithfulness being outpoured in our midst.  May you enjoy, and be encouraged and strengthened for whatever lies ahead because we know, whether it’s easy or hard, we’re in it together, and He has it covered Perfectly!  What a mighty God we serve!

In His mighty and matchless Name,

Your sister Nancy

FROM “HOME BASE” – A NOTE FROM JOHN:

Dear Ones, I included one of John’s exhortations at the beginning and I want to close this month’s mail with another one.  He so clearly unpacks the magnitude of what God has invited us all to be a part of, and I want our world wide family to catch that incomprehensible vision as well.  As our brother Paul said, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him, but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10)  With love, Nancy

A note from John:

Dear ones…it continues to boggle my mind, to see the marvelous ways in which Father continues to weave all of us together…into one beautiful human ‘tapestry’. In our lifetimes, He began to weave each one of us into the tapestry that He began to create when He first sent His Word to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and summoned them and their households to, ‘follow Him’.

 Then, at various stages of our lives, He began to weave us together with each other, to add to what went before, and to lay more of the groundwork that must be put in place for the completion of the purposes He still has in mind for the future. And that will lead us, and those that may come after us, up to, and successfully across…the ‘Finish Line’ that will introduce us all into His Eternal Kingdom…as ‘One New Man in Messiah’.

 And as this tapestry develops into its ‘Last Days’ stages, it utterly stuns me to see how He is so deftly and rapidly weaving our lives that are already woven together with each other…and weaving us into the lives of other people on the other side of the world that none of us has ever seen or met in the flesh!

 We may or may not have the opportunity to lay eyes on each other and embrace one another physically…but nevertheless, this awesome tapestry is, at this point, revealing to us how God is able to weave portions into His tapestry, whose various sections can also be included with ‘links’ that are purely spiritual in nature. Those portions of the tapestry transcend anything that is physical. So we can see that the Kingdom of Heaven is being already being introduced and established…in this physical, temporal, time and space dimension that our mortal bodies must currently occupy. Heaven is invading Earth; Eternity is invading Time; Light is invading Darkness. Righteousness is invading Sin and its corruption. And God’s children are already being united in the pure Righteousness and Holiness of His Living Word and Holy Spirit:

 “And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, ‘Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.’ This expression, ‘Yet once more,’ denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we receive a Kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming Fire!” (Hebrews 12:26-29)

Truly, Father has given us much over which to be truly, eternally grateful. And now that He has woven us all together in his household, Father is continuing to weave us, in this non-physical way, to more and more distant saints that we will probably never see in the flesh, or be able to meet or embrace in this world.

 Nevertheless, we have already been made into one…in our beloved Lord. And we can praise and thank God for all of eternity. But we can begin to thank Him even now, for enabling us to be part of the fulfillment of what Paul was seeing when He was inspired to pen these words:

 “Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died; and your life is hidden with Christ, in God. When Christ, who is our Life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in Glory!” (Colossians 3:1-4)

 I thank each one of you for being such great Covenant friends…my personal, beloved, eternal Covenant friends!

 In Him,

John
