Silencing The Foolish

"For this is the will of GOD, that by doing good you may put to silence
the ignorance of foolish men." [1 Peter 2. 15]

Egotistical and arrogant foolishness are the humanistic, blasphemous
attacking criticisms that are against GOD'S HOLY WORD and HIS
people. "Professing to be wise, they became fools." [Romans 1. 22] "HE
WHO is enthroned in heaven laughs; the LORD mocks and ridicules them."
[Psalms 2. 4] Yes, the wicked man schemes
against righteousness but "the LORD laughs at him, for HE knows
that his day will come." [Psalms 37. 13]
Thus, the best way to silence foolish men, is by doing good.

"When you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is
commendable before GOD." [1 Peter 2. 20] "For it is better, if it is the
will of GOD, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil." [1 Peter 3.
17] "Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of GOD commit
their souls to HIM in doing good, as to a faithful CREATOR." [1 Peter 4.
19] "Shun evil and do good, and you shall abide forever." [Psalms 37. 27]

The LORD MESSIAH YESHUA is the greatest, most unsurpassed EXAMPLE of
this for "when HE was reviled, He did not revile in return; when HE
suffered, HE did not threaten, but committed HIMSELF to HIM WHO judges
righteously." [1 Peter 2. 23] "HE was oppressed and HE was afflicted,
yet HE was submissive, HE did not open HIS mouth; like a sheep being led
to slaughter, like a ewe, dumb before those who shear her, HE did not
open HIS mouth." [Isaiah 53. 7]

Of course, everyone has the right to reject every argument and even
ridicule such a life, but they must eventually come to see its sure
foundation. "When they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by
your good works which they observe, glorify GOD in the day of
visitation." [1 Peter 2. 12] "Do not forget to do good and to share,
for with such sacrifices GOD is well pleased." [Hebrews 13. 16]

The LORD YESHUA bid those who would "follow ME."
Furthermore, it is "the will of GOD" that we identify ourselves with our
wonderful LORD by "doing good" as we emulate our HEAVENLY FATHER. And
when the GOOD SHEPHERD, the OVERSEER of believers appears, those who
know HIM will be glorified. When we are sure of our FOUNDATION, we have
little to fear and tough times are nowhere near as tough as without HIM.
Such joy and hope we have!

Man is given the choice of how he will act out in this world; but the
junctions and highways have been set in place by the CREATOR. We have an
AWESOME GOD, and HE is on the throne ruling over the affairs of men. If
only we could see the path as OMNISCIENT GOD has always seen it, we
would have selected it as well. HE is worthy of all our praise and
worship, even in difficult times.

Praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes. Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal PEACE & LOVE.

Christians who brag and boast about what they have (material things) and what have done for people and what they can do for people isn’t that being prideful? AND talk about others constantly about being prideful? Are you doing what you do for GOD or for YOU? Who is the one gaining? GOD or YOU? What is your purpose?

1 Cor 1:31 Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."

Proverbs 16:18
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
Pride is the easiest sin to commit and the most difficult to overcome,
even for CHRISTIANS. It is so easy to be proud of our strength,
wealth, race, education, position, intelligence or even poverty and
ignorance. Some are even proud of their humility…proud of not being
proud. There seems to be more pride and arrogance among Christian circles then in the secular world today. Remember pride is a sin…..
Do they even READ what the Bible says about the humble being exalted, NOT the prideful?!
Psalm 31:18
Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous.

They don't even want to admit their wrong, they're so busy looking at
how the 'other person was at fault' or looking at others to find others fault’s to cover their own. Everyone has fallen short of God’s glory it’s how we choose to live from that day forward is what matters. Do we choose to obey and follow GOD’s laws and HIS word?

All Christians do not pass Judgment on others and we should just pray for those and there are many people out there who do judge, prideful, boast or saying these ungodly things about others. Every last one of us who are Christians, are striving daily to be better today than we were yesterday so hopefully on this day, you see less horrible things coming from our Christian brothers and sisters.

Psalm 10:4
In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.

We were made by God for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to praise and worship him and SERVE him and if you are spending your time on this earth doing anything other than that, then you are NOT in alignment with God and what he expects from you.....So, do not be deceived into believing that you do not have any works to do for God and expect to go right through those pearly gates without doing as God has instructed you to do...YOUR WORKS that you do on earth for God should be satisfactory enough to stand on it's own merits when you are called and judged by God....So ask yourself....What have I done for God to edify his people and to feed his ministries with my time and talents that will be pleasing to God?......Is it your own selfish PRIDE that is keeping you from doing what you must do for God to aid in the building of his Kingdom? Are you using your God given gifts and talents just within your own realm? Or are you using them to spread to the world and reach teach and touch others to build GOD’s Kingdom and not your own? We must see the imperfection in ourselves that needs correcting before we can point fingers at another....I wish that all of us will see that there is way too much work to do for us to look down our noses on one another and start serving GOD as he has instructed us to do so.

2 Corinthians 10:15
Neither do we go beyond our limits by boasting of work done by others. Our hope is that, as your faith continues to grow, our sphere of activity among you will greatly expand,

We should "humble yourselves in the sight of the LORD, and HE
will lift you up." <James 4. 10> And if there is any praise and
boasting – it should only be in the LORD ETERNAL, "! Blessing and
glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honour and power and might, be to
our GOD forever and ever. Amen" <Revelation 7. 12>
There is no boasting among those that know that their faith is a GIFT from God.

1 Cor 1:27-31
27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things-and the things that are not-to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."
Therefore Brothers & Sisters! Keep it Holy! Keep it Jesus! Be humble and graceful and love one another as CHRIST LOVES US! Our Father in Heaven loves us so much he wants us to be one BIG HAPPY FAMILY…..IS THAT POSSIBLE?


IT’S ABOUT OUR LORD & SAVIOUR! Nothing is better than that!
Pastor Anna Neal
Good morning, Beloved!

The Church of the Scattered Flock has been called upon to facilitate the planting of 3 christian churches in India. Apparently, the daily word blog has been impactful around the world. Praise God!

I have been praying about this and believe it is a manifestation of the Great Commission upon our ministry. Therefore, I have been instructed to begin forming a team of Training Delegates to assist. As this team is formed and becomes trained in Indian law, and protocol, I will begin sowing the basics into the churches from here.

I have been instructed to assemble the following personnel:

2 Discipleship Trainers
1 Deacon/Missionary Trainer
1 Youth Leader Trainer
2 Administration Trainers
1 Photo/Video Journalist, and

Fund raising committee, and support network to remain in the states.

If you are moved by the Spirit of God to make your talents and gifts available for this ministry, please inbox me. Pray and seek the face of GOD, then get PERMISSION from your Pastor.

The bible says, " But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

It's under the power and authority of the Holy Spirit that you will have supernatural strength. We have to remember that we cannot do anything without HIM. We cannot do anything that is not in HIS will. When we start believing on this divine truth - then and only then will we taste VICTORY.

We get caught up in thinking that it was us that brought about the great result. We have to KNOW BETTER than that - without him we can do nothing. Wait on the Lord!

JIN - Flavor Fest 2012: International Artist & Conference Speaker


Flavor Fest 2012 - Tampa, FL October 4th-7th, 2012 @ Crossover Church
Flavor Fest 12 is our 12th annual conference. Many conferences and "ministry trends" never last that long. We're still here. The Fest is so much more than just another conference or a passing trend. For more than a decade many young, innovative leaders have been growing and maturing. Many have been saying "We Got Next..." We've been praying and planning about how the church could look and how it biblically should look. Many of us have now stepped into lead positions in our churches and ministries and it's a new day for the urban, multi-ethnic church as "Next is Now". But, how will we steward we have been given? What will change? What needs to stay the same? These are the things we'll discuss, dialog and wrestle with at Flavor Fest 12 as we ask God to equip us to LEAD by his spirit. We can't wait to see what he's going to do October 4th - 7th. We pray you can come and grow with us... and LEAD at FF 12 as "Next is Now!
