Monday Quotes!

A. W. Tozer

1897-1963

“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of One Accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshipers met together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be, were they to become ‘unity’ conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship.”

Suspended Children

Who are the suspended Children?

You see them every day, they are all around you.

These children are the children who do not know Jesus!

All around you in this country in your neighborhood are children 9 to 12 years of age who do not know Jesus. There may even be a suspended child in your home. These children do not know what sin is and they do not know Hell is a real place. These children are suspended above the flames of Hell waiting for you to teach them about the wages of sin. Romans 6:23; “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus.”

You and I who say that we are followers of Christ have been given a commission by Jesus: Mark 16: 15-16; “And He said (Jesus) to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to EVERY creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved: he who does not believe is condemned.”

Our world is the people living around us these are the ones we are to teach the Gospel. In my thinking our Abba Father Wants to move among the people of the world again and wants to embrace the children of the United States. In the past when there was a move of God it has been a move in the younger people in this nation. I think back to Jesus people of 1960’s it was the young people touched by Jesus and the way we did church in America has been changed forever. The movement came about by one man with a burden and a prayer to reach the hippies. Young people the hippies had emptiness in their hearts and were searching for something to fill the void.

One day my heart became so burdened for children, it may have been after one of the school shootings, hearing about children having sex at the age of ten with one another, or even after seeing the lines of children waiting to buy the new Harry Potter book. Children are exposed to so much emptiness these days my heart broke, so I prayed. For about three years I prayed for the children. God gave me Donkey Tells, simply said, Donkey Tells is the Gospel of Jesus Christ told to children for the ages of 9 to 12 year old.

With all the disasters happening in this country as of lately I found myself in the book of Joel. Joel used the disasters to call the people to repent. I am not saying that the disasters in our country are judgments of God. One verse jumped out at me Joel 1:3;

Tell your children about it

Let you children tell their

Children.

And their children another

Generation.

God created donkeys to come alongside of man to help him carry the loads in life that were too heavy to be carried by him. Suspended donkeys are books that help you and are sent out for the suspended children to introduce them to Jesus. “Donkey Tells, A Promise Kept” is the gospel of Jesus Christ in words that anyone can understand. Donkey Tells is a tool to help anyone show a child the love of Jesus. Donkey Tells is a tool to open the door to teach a child about Jesus.

Children Only Know

What YOU

Teach Them!

A suspended book is a book that is bought for a child who does not know Jesus. Maybe you buy one book for yourself and another for the little trouble maker next door.

I am also looking for away to give a book to every child who has fallen into hard times. I wish to give a Suspended Donkey to foster care children, homeless children, any child in need, and all suspended children over the flames of HELL. Donkey Tells, is a donkey that comes alongside and carries them to the loving arms of Jesus.

Jesus said, “Let the Little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” Matthew 19:14

Again a task before me has been given of which I do not know how to do. Again to our Abba I shall not be saying no. Yet to you my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus I am asking you to be of One Accord with me telling the children of the world about the Love of Jesus? I would love to hear your input on how we shall do this task. I have some ideas yet I believe many of you out there may have better ideas than I. Let us be the ones to introduce the Children to Jesus and His love for His glory forever and ever, Amen.

If you do not wish to leave your comment here or idea I can be reached at

This post shall also be posted as a new page also, Thank-you everyone and God Bless.

PRAYER REQUEST – My Dad

Anytime there is a call to prayer may the Men of One Accord bend their knees, Amen

A DEVOTED LIFE

To all my friends from A Devoted Life:

I would greatly appreciate prayers from you all.

My Dad is critically ill and in the intensive care unit (ICU) at the hospital.  He has a gangrene infection in his gall bladder.  He is too ill for them to operate and remove his gall bladder.  We were just told that he is on life support and is experiencing organ failure of the kidneys and heart.  We understand that due to low blood pressure there may be other organ damage.

My Dad has loved his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for as long as I can remember.  He is the one that showed me what it looks like to truly love God.  His destination is assured.  Yet, we selfishly desire to keep him with us and earnestly desire our Lord to heal the infection within his body and restore his health.

We serve the King of kings and Lord…

Quote of the month from Winnie the Pooh:

My spelling is wobbly.

It’s good spelling but it wobbles

and the letters get in

the wrong places!

Oh Pooh Bear I just know how you feel my spelling  also wobbles!

This post is just to tell everyone Men of One Accord will be shutting down for some time for I shall be moving to Knoxville Tn. It is a little over 700 mile move and I am not sure now long I shall be without internet. I will try to keep up with you all out there as I use my laptop in wi-fi hot spots to read your posts and email. May I ask of you to keep my wife and I in your prayers as we make this move as our Abba places us upon your hearts.

When Men of One Accord returns it shall be in a new city answering a new calling of God in my life. I know I shall still be in men’s prayer groups but now writing for the souls of our children. As the prophet Joel called out to his people to repent I too cry out so that our children may learn of the love of Jesus.

Joel 1:3

Tell it to your children,

and let your children tell it

to their children,

and their children to the next

generation.

May the love of Jesus fill you to overflowing, may His peace surround you, and in your weakness may you rest in His loving arms, Amen.

A Request For Prayer?

I received this request for prayer in my comments and replied that I would pass on the request through my blog. I was so deeply moved in the Spirit it took me some time before I could even  write to ask for others to pray. Yes this request is not from a country were one is free to worship Yeshua. These are the words that were in the comment:

dear men of one accord plz put us up in your prayers this day as the devil is attacking us from all sides the guarding angels are and will continue to be with us all but your prayers will also help. if two or more are gathered in his name jesus will oversee us and thru our most difficult times as the mission here grows the monetary parts are expanding too plz pray for a big blessing of monies to help in our daily operations and to give us a renewed sense of responsibility with our work in the field here. god bless u all and thank u in advances for all ur help

Thank-you all for joining with me in prayer for our brothers and sisters in Yeshua our Messiah.

BE STILL and WAIT and KNOW!

I have come back to this page again 

to see if words of light dance!

I have two other tasks that beckon

to me come and toil for them. 

Yet Men of One Accord awaits

for some new words of light.

I find no new prose

nor a vision of a poem

is in my sight.

So now is this my time to wait?

A time to contemplate?

So is this the time to be still

 and know?

Yes, Yes my mind is 

really, really blank!

But to be still and wait 

and know?

Yahweh is your God.

So be Still and Wait

and Know.

Brothers and sisters in Christ this me trying to tell you that God has added to the calling in my life. I have two new task that has been set before me to do. One I have been working on for sometime the other is a door that has opened to me. Both task are demanding more of my time and I do not fill free to elaborate on them. The first project I have worked for some time is now moving ahead and I need to spend more time with it fine tuning. The other is a new door that has just open to me a new territory where I have never been before. I will also be keeping up on men’s prayer groups as I am needed there. I follow a lot of blogs and I will still keep following them and may even add more to my list. One thing I do need to do is to slow down on my posting and I am really having a hard time writing new post.

I want to thank every one of you who follows Men of One Accord  from my heart. I love all your comments, your blessings, and encouragement you have brought into my life. Please keep me in your prayers for I will need more of our Abba’s wisdom to discern  the loving truthful words of Christ with all the new people God is bring into my life. I need your prayers for boldness to proclaimed in the gentleness caring concerns of Christ for their souls.            

May the joy of the Lord be with you and the peace that passes all understanding be your resting place. May all who see you be greeted with the love of Christ that is in you. I pray that rivers of blessings flow out of heaven and deep into your souls so that all who meet you has seen the Face of Christ the hope in you, Amen.

Quotes on Prayer! VI

Quotes of wisdom from the saints of the past I pray that their lessons learned may be applied to my heart and yours, Amen.

It is wonderful the effect of a single verse of Scripture when the Spirit of God applies it to the soul. What power would come upon the soul if we would grasp a single line of Scripture and suck the honey out of it till our soul is filled with sweetness.

C. H. Spurgeon

But what does asking for the Kingdom mean? A Kingdom is the domain of a King. Praying for God’s Kingdom to come is, more than anything else, asking for His rule or governance to be released into a situation. Whether it be for a nation, a city, an organization, a home, or an individual, when we ask for the Kingdom we are saying, “God, would You come and rule in this affair?” And when God’s rule is manifested, all is well.

Dutch Sheets

If a church prays in unity and are of one accord that church will never become a drifting ghost ship manned with dead man’s bones.

 Thomas

O Almighty God, who hast built thy Church upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the head corner-stone; Grant us so to be joined together in unity of spirit by their doctrine, that we may be made a Holy Temple acceptable unto Thee. Amen

Book of Common Prayer

When Jesus uttered the simple request to His Father, “ Thy Kingdom come,” He was not only thinking of the Messianic Kingdom, but also implied that He was inviting Him to establish His Kingdom in the hearts and lives of men.

W. Phillip Keller

God never ceases to speak to us, but the noise of the world without and the tumult of  our passions within bewilder us and prevent us from listening to Him.

Francois Fenelon 

The sooner I forget myself in the desire that He may be glorified, the richer will the blessing be that prayer will bring to myself. 

Andrew Murray

As you read through the Bible, write down in your journal every time God asks a question. As you go through your day, try to answer that question, with words and actions.

Mark Buchanan 

Lord, there are times when I am so busy sending panic memos off to You that I fail to discern Your voice assuring me that Your Grace is sufficient. 

A. W. Tozer

They who have steeped their souls in prayer 

Can every anguish calmly bear.

Richard Monckton Milnes Houghton

Jack’s Love List III

I could not help myself I found some of these things I have written down and just had to post them! Remember these are just the random thoughts that flow in and out of my mind in no relative order.

1.) Please do not ask our Abba Father: How to clean out your Barn if you really do not want to know?

2.)The price of sin of my sin is to great, I should think before I act.

3.) While the harvest of my sin has been greater than I could have ever imagined: Abba’s Love is even greater.

4.) A man once said to me, “The Church has been raped of its men.” So I asked him to spend time in prayer with me for the church and its men, and yet he has no time to pray?

5.) Does our Abba father rate our relationship with Him? Does He rate us based on our experience or upon our love and faithfulness? How does Abba rate us?

6.) When talking with the un-churched, not saved, lost men they are confused and ask: Why are there so many denominations? Why are you always fighting with one another? Why are you always competing against each other?  I have to say I am confuse too!

7.) There is nothing wrong with the CHURCH having distinct denominations just as there was nothing wrong with Israel having twelve sons or tribes. Is it wrong when the sons become so enamored in their own denomination, that the sons fail to acknowledge they have brothers in other tribes?

8.) Are we not ONE Israel, ONE Church, ONE Body and soon there will be only ONE Bride!?

9.) Do we build denominational walls because we are afraid someone will jump the wall and go to another tribe? That just might help with some of that denominational inbreeding. One of Webster’s New World Dictionary defines inbreeding #2: to become too refined to be effective.

10.) Just maybe Godly leaders could band together under a Biblical based statement that any Christian can agree to like: The deity of Jesus. His virgin birth, His sinless life, His atoning death on the cross, His resurrection; There is only One Eternal God, revealed in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; the Bible is the infallible inspired Word of God; We believe and receive by faith Jesus as our Savior; We have the Hope of eternal life with Yeshua in Heaven.

11.) I am not saying, to believe in an anything goes, is grounds, for unity. What If?

12.) What happens if we pray for the Body of Christ to come together?

Teach Us to Pray

Abba,  Please teach us to pray, we must learn Your ways that lead us to seeing Your Face. Some of us are not skilled in the art of words, for our tongue mixes our thoughts into a maze of words entangled in our mouths. Yet some have grown complacent and a selfish flesh an embezzler of our time spent with You. Still some have grown lazy and apathy has set in as our  bones return to dust. We are men who know not how to express the deepest emotions that are hidden deep inside our soul. We are men who know not how to express the fears that tear our heart apart and cause our faith to grow colder than ice.

In these moments we have no colorful stylistically expressions of words we could speak. Nor do we wish to recite those churchly phrases we so often throw around as if to impress one another. Nor do we have a finely tuned delicately molded prayer to lavish at Yeshua’s feet. Abba let us not offend You when we confine ourselves to repeating petitions as our prayers unwind like an old cuckoo-clock. Please forgive us, for far to long our prayers have been a children’s wish list at Christmas of  I wants. Abba, we have been held captive to long help us be free of these rusty chains!  Abba, could it be we are praying more when we say the least?

Abba, should Your men not have a desirous pleading for Your Will to be done here now on earth as it is in Heaven? Abba, help us to be content with our daily bread, as You keep us from evil. For You are the all-powerful, all-knowing, always loving, always present God that we surrender to. Take our will and remake it into Your will do with us as You desire. Please give the men of God the courage to take captive the next stronghold of hell, give us boldness and vision to expand our boundaries, increase our Faith to seek adventure in finding new horizons. Most of all help us to love You more every day and love Your Will for our lives.  

Abba, turn Your face upon us and reach out with Your Holy Spirit as we try to draw near to you. Abba Father, we have been that clanging cymbal and sounding brass far to long. By Your Holy Spirit  we shall once more love Your Laws and love and desire Your will for our lives. We will repent and love one another, we will again love our enemies, we shall seek first Your Kingdom. We shall repent and will once more become Men of One Accord for this is Your Will. Then the Holy Spirit shall sound from Heaven and once more rush in as a mighty wind to the men who are of one accord. The Fire of heaven shall sit upon your men of the Church as many signs and wonders appear. Blind shall see, the lame shall dance, and as the dead rise to life to worship the King. All Glory and Honor Belongs to Yeshua the King of Kings! Father Abba we seek Your Face!

Amen!

More Of Jack’s Love List

Many people have asked, some people have asked, well at least one person has asked for more of my scribbles out of Jack’s love list.

 

1.) How many times have you ever been told by someone all you need is more faith? Does not everyone need more faith? In good times we need more faith in hard times we need more faith, then what is one really asking for? What one is asking for is for someone to come alongside and pray with them not at them. For in the prayer of One Accord our faith becomes greater than a mustard seed. What then happens when FAITH is GREATER than a mustard seed?

 

2.) The importance of praying in unity cannot be overstated as a Big Contributing Factor in seeing answer to prayers. There is power in unity because our Abba Father strengthens our Faith as He joins our hearts in One Accord. In this act of obeisance our Abba Father strengthens the individuals personal walk Christ. Acts 2:1

 

3.) When praying alone I can sometimes become discouraged and give up too soon. Praying with other men forces me to verbalize my needs and teaches us how to allow others to share our burdens. In this WE gain strength, encouragement, and faith, each time we hear others praying for us. The Prayer of One Accord opens up a wonderful flow of God’s blessings, power, love, and grace into our lives.

4.) One of the things most men of todays church do not have is a conviction about is the war going on in the Spiritual Realm. Men need to be unified in believing that the Spiritual Realm is real, and they have a place of privileged, authority, and access in it. When men recognize they can make a very real insurgence into this Spiritual Realm, they believe with greater faith.

 

5.) Worship is a form of prayer, and in prayer we worship, seeing power in our prayer begins and is in our worship.

 

6,) One of the most important things I have learned about being in a Spiritual Family is finding power in prayer through unity.

 

7.) How do I truly intercede for people and situations? Could it be the Bride of Christ praying in One Accord?

 

8.) Breaking down of the denominational barriers starts with men like you and I praying together for unity in the Body  of Christ. Men of all cultures, races, and denominations that become united in prayer to bring down the strongholds of Satan will see Thy Kingdom Come.

 

9.) For most men there is a vast ignorance about the ways of prayer. Proof! Is seen in the industrialize production of books on the subject of prayer in the modern and ancient  church. These books line the shelves of the book store and most have been written by women. Where have all the men gone?

10.) Abba Father, I , James who is a nobody and a sinner, can you use me? Will You use me as an instrument to break down all the attitudes of hatred, animosity, separation, and disrespect, toward races and other denominations. Abba help me to see each man as Your most favorite child, Amen
