To my precious Doves!
Over the last few months on 5 Doves, I have been growing increasingly frustrated with my "church" there. Tares appear to have crept in amongst the wheat. My guess is that this situation has a twofold purpose... (1) Satan loves division, especially where Christians are gathered, and (2) since Father Yahweh turns all things to the good for those who love Him, and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:1), the second purpose is to begin dividing the wheat from the tares, to see whose side we are on.
I told Father Yahweh on the way home Tuesday that I was hurt by the direction things were going on the Doves, that me and my brothers & sisters in Yahshua are being literally attacked and BULLIED by Religionists/Legalists, and it's just plain WRONG. As Paul tells us…
Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned, and turn away from them. For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting. (Romans 16:17-18)
I have total respect and love for John (Tng), and 5 Doves is HIS website. As such, he has a right to post or NOT to post whatever he wishes. That's his prerogative as the owner of 5 Doves. But I need to set up my own blog so that I can post or not post as I wish, too.
5 Doves has been like a church to me, and I love the people on there who love the Lord and His Word as much as I do. But I will not sit back and have untruths taught to new Christians, Christians who are not well-versed in the Word who could easily be led astray, or unbelievers who are seeking truth, so that they think that the unscriptural things that have been posted lately are true, because they definitely are NOT.
I then asked Him to please show me what I should do; I told Him I feel like I should drop off 5 Doves for a while, though the thought deeply saddened me. About 5 minutes later, when I was almost home, I asked Father Yahweh what HE wanted me to do... should I keep posting on the Doves, or should I drop off? It truly bothered me, because I love most of the Doves like brothers and sisters, and I would miss them greatly. You know, most people think He talks to our spirits in 3rd person--for instance, "I [meaning God] think you should do so-and-so", etc… but He actually speaks to our spirits in the 1st person--for instance, you will have an idea "pop" into your head, such as "I [meaning yourself] think I should do so-and-so?). A couple of minutes later, an idea "popped" into my head, "I think I'll start my OWN blog like 5 Doves. Then I can post what I want and refuse to post what I don't want." [Spoken to a fellow Dove] These "few" you are referring to didn't only disappoint me, they are preaching total NON-TRUTHS about God's Word, and I cannot tolerate that, brother. I will NOT compromise God's Word for ANY reason whatsoever.
I arrived home, went inside the house, and talked to Richard about it. Whenever I have had a spiritual problem that I needed answers to, or needed to know how Father Yahweh would like something done, He has always sent me to talk to Richard (the spiritual head of the household). He tells Richard what to tell me, and that’s how I know what His answer is to me. Richard told me that he couldn't tell me what to do or not to do, but that if it was him, he wouldn't put up with it. He suggested that I start my own blog, so I could post or not post, as I saw fit.
I told him I didn't know if I would have time, but that I would talk to the Lord about it. I had supper, then went to check my emails. The first one I read was from a fellow Dove whom I dearly love and whose opinion I trust. He had read the Doves that day, and was hurt and concerned for me because of the blatant attacks against me and others for not compromising the truth. There was confirmation #2. Whenever the Lord speaks to you about something, and you wonder if it's from Him, from the enemy, or just your own idea, if you ask Him to please confirm it for you if it's from Him or not, He will send people to you to confirm that it's from Him, if indeed it is. These two confirmations were received by me within 30 minutes of beginning my talk with Father. Between that time, and 8 hours later, I had received 6-8 MORE confirmations, without even speaking to anyone about the situation!
On the way to work the next morning, I thanked Him for the wonderful idea, and asked Him to please help me think of a name for His new site. I threw out 7 or 8 different names, and finally decided on Hear His Word, so that is what it will be called. It should be up and running by Monday morning. The link to it will be (and it will be linked also on my main page of His-Forever):
HEAR HIS WORD
and emails for posting can be sent to:
Cutoff time each day for receipt of emails for posting will be 4 PM for that night's or the following morning's postings. I will have to see what my schedule is like with His-Forever daily updates, work schedule, 3-hour/day commute, etc., but if I don't get posts put up at night, they will go up the next morning... the Lord will provide the schedule AND the energy. Personal emails (that are not to be posted) can still be sent to me at:
Feel free to start sending me your Monday posts this Saturday or Sunday so I can begin readying them to go up on the site Monday.
I would love to have you there, and you are most welcome, as long as you are Father Yahweh's child and Yahshua's Bride, and are content to follow the guidelines I have set up.
One brother said -
Remember the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, if they hated Jesus, you can be sure they will also hate you. If they listened to Jesus who always told the plain truth, they will also listen to you. But if they did not listen to Him, they will also not listen to you. Praise the Lord. I have never found anything wrong with you or your posts, instead I always marvell as to how you always make it and the many nice and sweet articles you always place for us to read. I wish you could go on and on Sister.
I agree with those statements completely and thank him for his encouragement, but remember that Yahshua also told us:
And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. (Matthew 10:14-16)
If they don't wish to listen to you when you present His Word to them, there's no reason to continue with them. He will handle them from there on out, once you've given His Word to them as a testimony.
These bullies have taken over the forum now, and it's miserable! It's no longer comfortable there, so I think it's time to move on.
Daily Updates will still be put on the site each morning (Monday-Friday), but now you'll also have the posts to read and respond to!
And, even better than that, Richard brought up to me last night that when we first set our site up through our service provider, as part of the package, we received a free chat room. Richard will be setting it up for me over the weekend, and I will be assigning passwords to those who are interested in chatting there. I am SO excited!!! That’s even better than talking on a cell phone, because unless the other person has AT&T as their service provider, it’s not free. Now if I think of something I want to tell one of you, I can just have you meet me in the chat room, and we can type/talk as much as we want… instantly!!! And even when I’m not able to be in the chat room, you folks can chat away at your leisure, and I can join in at lunch or whenever I have some free time! YEA!!!!!!
I hope to see you on the posting board AND in the chat room... and even more importantly, I hope to see you SOON on the Other Side...
The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." And let the one who hears say, "Come." And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost. (Revelation 22:17)
And brother John Tng, I want to thank you personally for so many years of wonderful friendships brought about by 5 Doves. May our Father greatly bless you and yours until we meet at the Wedding!
