The following letter-form was brought about as a means of teaching my children the Word of God through the mail. And of course, quite naturally so, thatís the reason I begin these letters with "Dear Children" and end them with "Love Dad". So for the rest of you who participate in these weekly messages, please keep their original intended purpose in mind.
17 March, 2002
Do you think that ó just maybe ó one of these days Iíll learn to add to all my promises "If the Lordís willing and the creek donít rise"? Because you see I had no sooner written the ending promise in our last weekís sermonet ó "And, having said all of that, I will continue speaking Godís Truth concerning Jimmy Swaggart in our upcoming sermonet of Jimmy Swaggart And The "Since" That Should Have Remained "If"!" ó than the Lord told me to change my directions. I mean as of Friday morning the Lord gave me orders to write this weekís sermonet entitled Pastor Michael Duseau: His Harley Or The Cross?... and He even said "Do it now!!!"
So, here I am! However, before I start running a few snakes out of Pastor Duseauís woodpile Iíve gotta deal with mine first. You see some of my most formable years took place during the 60ís; right about the time "rock and roll" was kicking it into high gear. And seeing how I was running "from God" and "toward the world" at the time, it was this very same "influential music" that surrounded me in my everyday life. I mean I have many old memories that are kinda like "linked to" that music, with quite a few of them having everything to do with immorality and "Teen Club" dances.
Now the "snake in my woodpile" goes back to this music from my past with all itís ungodly memories that go along with it. And even though the vivid details of these memories donít necessarily come to mind when I hear the music, the feeling of a "sense of pleasure" does. In other words it just "feels good" listening to it, and of course that particular "good feeling" is actually the result of my "sinful flesh".
In fact Thursday night it just so happened that my TV was tuned to the Public Broadcasting Station when they aired a fund-raising telethon with "music from the 60ís". And seeing how it came-on right about the time I was eating supper, I figured there was no real harm in watching it... so I did. However, it was long after supper had ended that I found myself sitting before the TV and enjoying every last minute of the show. In fact it was about half an hour before itís ending that the Father told me to turn-it-off and plug-in the Jimmy Swaggart video on Romans Chapter 6 (Verses 1-5).
You see God the Father is going to use that particular Jimmy Swaggart video in our up-coming sermonet on Jimmy Swaggart And The "Since" That Should Have Remained "If"! I had already been told what I must do but yet the PBS show kinda like got in my way. In fact seeing how "feeding my flesh with the tunes" felt so good I actually doubted it was my Heavenly Father telling me to turn it off. I mean I asked if it was Him speaking, and He replied that it was, but then I went right on by asking for a few more minutes anyway.
Well before it was all said and done, I finished watching the "rock and roll show" before watching the Jimmy Swaggart video... but before I could finish watching the Jimmy Swaggart video ó what my Father wanted me to watch ó it was kinda like time for me to hit the bed.
And then came Friday morningís shower when Father God spoke His very strong Word of correction to me. Because, in so many Words, what the Father had to say was that it was totally unacceptable that I hadnít obeyed His Word immediately and without compromise the night before. I had sinned against Him in a mighty big way, and my everlasting life depended on me not doing it again! He is trying to save my life but I must be obedient to Him in all things.
So what do you think about that? Well without a doubt I was shook... and I definitely asked forgiveness for this same sin "the second time around". Because you see Father God brought back to my memory that this was not the first time "60ís rock and roll" had stopped me from obeying His command. In fact it was only a few months back that PBS aired a similar show... and believe it or not but I did the exact same thing then. I mean Thursday night was almost like a replay of my past; I was told to turn-off the program, but I didnít, and after having been corrected by the Father I asked forgiveness. In fact the first time that it happened I actually promised that Iíd never do again.
Itís truly amazing how powerful these little "snakes in our woodpiles" can be. I mean I want nothing more than to serve God completely with my life... but yet there is a very real part of me ó sinful parts that I really do not understand ó that can very easily stop me from being totally obedient to Him.
So what am I to do? I must seek God the Father "in all things" and "at all times" and then immediately just do whatever He tells me to do. Because you see I know without a doubt that the closer I get to God and His calling for my life the easier itís going to be to kinda like "crash and burn"! And after having already committed this same sin twice ó two times straight-in-a-row ó itís time for me to get very defensive. I mean after all, itís very possible that the third one could take me straight to Hell!
You see it all goes back to the "human body and sin". Every time Old Splitfoot gets us to willfully disobey the Fatherís orders heís one step closer in reaching his goal. Because what heís actually doing is teaching our bodyís brain stem to disobey God without us even having to think about it. Itís what God calls a "stiff neck" brain stem, and it likewise causes our body to become so spiritually deaf to the Fatherís "Spirit Voice" that only a prophet from God can help us hear.
And after having said that itís time to get-it-on-down with our little message to Pastor Michael Duseau. Because unlike most Tuesday mornings, it was this weekís that I just so happened to turn on our local Christian TV station (KSCE Channel 38) at 8:30 and watch Pastor Duseauís show It Is Time. I mean for some "unknown" reason I was just drawn to watch it... but by the end of the show I knew exactly why. You see what I soon discovered was that the Pastor believes in the false doctrine that Jesus had to "fight Satan in Hell" in order to save our souls. In other words he believes that the Cross of Christ was not enough... and that takes us back to our sermonet of The Word Of Faith Error And Copeland, Meyer, Price, Crouch, And Hinn! (6/10/01).
Without a shadow of a doubt I knew the Pastor needed my help. So before the show was over I very quickly copied down his prayer line number, and, after having sought the Lord in prayer for His Divine Will, I finally called the number at 11:00. However, seeing how a real person did not answer the phone I very kindly left my name and number after the beep.
Well it was right about 2:06 in the afternoon, to be exact, that I received a call back from Pastor Duseau. I didnít waste a whole lot of time with the small talk but jumped right on into letting him know that Jesus paid the price for our sins in full at the Cross. When Jesus said "It is finished" it was Finished. I told him Jesus did not have to fight Satan in Hell in order to save our souls, and I could prove it through Godís revelation to us on the "human body and sin"!
Now, after all that I really expected the Pastor to hang-up the phone in my face... but he didnít. You see the Holy Spirit had already shown Him that I was a man of God who could be trusted. Pastor Duseau first of all sensed it when he first heard my voice, and the Holy Spirit further confirmed it through my phone number. And just what do you figure a phone numberís got to do with my walk for the Lord.
Well you see Pastor Duseau has some very special gifts from the Lord, and one of them just so happens to be what weíll call "numerology". In fact a good example of God using numbers to describe a "person" can be seen in His number for the Antichrist of "666". And getting back to my phone number of "6789", I kinda like figured the Lord was being nice by giving me an easy number to remember. But according to the Pastor that just ainít so. Because what he saw in my number was a "straight progression" which can be translated to mean "on course and progressing toward the mark". And just in case youíre having a hard time believing that God works through numbers, then take a look at my ex-wifeís (Annieís) phone number of "6987".
Do you think thatís a coincidence? Well to be honest with you I did... that is until the Pastor explained what it actually meant. Because what he saw in that number is a nothing less than one more white knuckle "roller coaster ride". Amazing! You see Annie has the same numbers as mine because she was my wife, but due to her decision not to follow the Lord her number arrangement has become significantly different than mine. In fact the roller coaster ride of her life has only just begun, because God the Father is about to Personally reward her for all the evil sheís directed at me and the family. I mean please donít get me wrong. I pray for her salvation daily, but the truth of the matter is that she has been the "Judas Iscariot" in my life. In other words she was used by Satan to nail me to my cross. God allowed her to do me wrong so that some of my flesh could be killed-off. However, even though her "bad" has worked for my "good", her wicked deeds must be "justly rewarded" by God the Father.
But anyway, after having sought the Lordís guidance in prayer, Pastor Duseau and I agreed to meet at 10:00 in the morning on Friday the 15th. It was almost too good to be true! I mean here was a Pastor who was actually willing to hear the Truth about his error. Well thatís the way it was until the very next morning when the Pastor left a message saying heíd have to reschedule our meeting.
Now the minute I got out of the shower and heard his message I knew in my spirit that the Lord was at work. It was Godís Divine Will that our meeting be rescheduled, and the sooner we could make it all happen the better. In fact what the Lord showed me in prayer was that the Pastorís life was at stake and it was urgent that we meet as soon as possible. So immediately I returned his call and our meeting was moved up to 12:30 that same day (Wednesday). And... as we were about to end our conversation the Pastor told me the Lord wanted me to bring my Bible.
Bring my Bible? What was he talking about? I mean the Lord knows I take my Bible everywhere I go, so why was He telling Pastor Duseau to tell me to bring my Bible? Well the answer to that very perplexing question came about pretty quickly through prayer. Because the Bible that the Lord was talking about was not my Jimmy Swaggart Study Bible but my Zodhiates Parallel Greek Word Study Bible. So what in the world was the Lord up to?
Well seeing how there was only a few hours remaining before our meeting, I immediately sought the Lord in prayer as to what I was to do... and the Lord responded in like manner by giving me His list of what I was to say.
I arrived at Carrows Restaurant (the appointed meeting place) around 12:15, and it was only shortly thereafter that the Pastor drove up in his white 1996 Cadillac. We got out of our vehicles ó me the primer-gray/blue Toyota truck, him the white Cadillac ó and gave each other a great big brotherly hug. The Pastor then let me know that the Lord had confirmed it once again in his spirit that I was a man of God. When he saw me he knew it! And now that Iím looking back at what God was doing that day I can see very clearly how He was preparing the Pastor to receive what I was about to speak. Because you see the Lord showed the Pastor in three different ways that I was to be trusted as a man of God; first through my voice, secondly through my telephone number, and thirdly through my appearance. Wow!
Well we went inside, took a seat in a booth, and immediately asked the Lord in prayer for His Will to be done through our meeting. The Lord then spoke a very "strong and long" Prophetic Word through Pastor Duseau about me. This was not what I was expecting! He went into many past, present, and future details of my life concerning the FMHCCI, which even included the reason for our up-coming ranch. I mean even though Iíve known weíre going to build a ranch for 100 kids I really didnít understand itís overall function... that is until the Lord spoke it through Pastor Duseau. Because you see what weíre to do on that ranch is train the 100 kids for their God-called mission of "prophet/seer". Weíre going to have a school for prophets! Glory!
So after the Pastor "blew my mind" with Godís Prophetic Word I proceeded to speak what the Lord had given me for him. And even though there was considerable discussion in-between the individual items, Iíll only go so far as to list them for now:
# 1) Seek God in all your decisions.
# 2) Revelation 13:1
# 3) I Kings 17:8-16
# 4) $1200
# 5) Hosea 6:1-3
# 6) Twelve (12) FMHCCI business cards.
# 7) Luke 14:15
# 8) You are taking of His Flesh and Blood but yet thereís unconfessed sin in your life.
# 9) Isaiah 11:1-5
#10) Sacrifice... die to the flesh and be born in His Spirit.
OK, now that youíve seen the entire list letís take the items one by one. Godís first command to Pastor Duseau was "Seek God in all your decisions." That oneís pretty basic in that we as Christians must give our lives totally to the Father and do only the things that He desires. Because you see the only way us Christians are going to become "more like Jesus" is by allowing God the Father to change us. And of course the way this "changing thing" works is that He tells us what to do, we obey Him, and some of our "sin-filled flesh" gets crucified and replaced by His "Spirit". We die to the flesh and become born in the Spirit through a total and complete obedience to each and every Word that the Father gives us.
Thatís Godís first command to Pastor Duseau and now for the second that comes in the form of Scripture: "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy." (Revelation 13:1)
So what do you figure it all means? Well at the time I gave it to the Pastor I had no earthly idea how it applied to his life. I mean I had a very basic description of the snakes in the Pastorís woodpile but I had no idea they were this big, bad, and ugly! However, now that several days have passed the Lordís seen fit to give me His intended meaning of this Scripture. Because you see in that one little old verse is the very big, bad and ugly description of the Antichrist himself. I mean this guy is "IT" when it comes to a man whoís totally opposed to the one and only Salvation Process ó "Jesus Christ and Him Crucified"! In fact you might even want to say that Mr. Antichrist is 100%, totally and completely "possessed" in his opposition to "Jesus Christ and Him Crucified"!
But anyway, in addition to describing the Antichrist, the word "beast" can also be used to explain what happens to a person (man/woman - boy/girl) when they refuse to obey God. Because you see each and every time any of us donít obey the Fatherís Will thereís a little part of us that kinda like turns into this "beastly" thing. And getting back to Mr. Antichrist whoís "all beast", we can get a little more insight on this beastly subject from verse 18: "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
You see Mr. Antichrist is "all beast" in body, soul, and spirit. Heís kinda like "all sold out" to Satan! And with "all" that in mind letís go back a few pages to the subject of "Pastor Duseau and his numerology" when I mentioned the fact that Godís "number name" for the Antichrist is "666"? Well here it is from Godís Word! God says the number of the beast is the number of man which is "666". And looking up that particular word for "man" in the Greek we get the following very interesting description: "The word man (anthropos)  in the New Testament is used to make a distinction between sinful man, whoís conduct or way or nature is opposed to God, and the word man (aner)  which is a male or husband."
Now putting that "all together" we find that God has given "sinful man" the name of "beast" and the number "6", and seeing how the Antichrist is "all sinful man" ó totally opposed to God in body, soul, and spirit ó heís been given the thrice-sinful number of "666".
So how does that all apply to Pastor Duseau? Well just stick around until the end of the sermonet and youíll find out. Because where weíre headed to now is Godís chosen Scripture for the Pastor in item #3: "And the word of the LORD came unto him [Elijah the prophet], saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee. So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand. And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruise: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me therefore a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruise of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth. And she went in and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah." (I Kings 17:8-16)
Now, just in case you didnít already know it, Iím very fond of the story of Elijah. You see God gave it to me right about the time I got fired from The Toro Company ó The Big Snake Slithers Out Of The Woodpile! (3/21/99) ó and then a few months later He gave it to my son Arthur for his sermonet ó No Job, No Money, But God Will Provide! (7/25/99). In fact itís through that one little old story that the Lord just keeps right on teaching me things that Iíve got to know in order to be pleasing to Him.
I mean take for instance the widow woman. She was a Gentile "dog" who did not worship Elijahís God (the God of Israel) but yet the Lord commanded Elijah to ask her for handouts. In fact, seeing how Elijah was a Jew, he had always been taught from his religion that just the "thought" of going into a Gentile town was a sin ó much less living in one ó but yet thatís what the Lord said he must do in order to stay alive. And of course the bottom line reason for it was so that Elijah could "learn" to put his faith in God and not in any "man" made religion. Because you see when it comes to us being transformed into the image of God, itís only through our obedience to His every Word that weíre able to crucify our "beastly flesh" and become more like Him.
So that was how the Lord was working in Elijahís life, and then thereís the widow womanís side of the story... but her side of the story wasnít a whole lot different than Elijahís. Because in order for her to "save her own skin" she also had to do something quite unnatural like trust in a Word that was spoken through a prophet of God. And you see even though the Lord had already prepared her to trust Elijah, she still had to overcome her "beastly flesh" by physically forcing herself to just do it. I mean, when youíre really starving to death, it ainít all that easy to give away the only food youíve got to someone you donít even know!
And having said all that we can go to item #4 which was the $1200 that the Lord wanted the Pastor to give to me. You see God was trying to "save the Pastorís skin" by having him play the widow woman on my behalf. And even though I didnít mention how he was to get the money, the Lord had already told me just how it all had to happen. You see the Lord was going to let the Pastor keep his Cadillac, but his Harley-Davidson motorcycle had to go... and it had to go immediately ó before Friday ó for the very low price of $1200! Ouch, that hurt! Talk about The Journey Of Fear! (3/10/02).
Itís what you call one more mighty big sacrifice for the Glory of God. I mean a lot of folks would give their lives for a Harley-Davidson but yet the Lord was asking the Pastor to give-up his in order to save his life! Because you see if the Pastor could only force himself to obey Godís Word he would crucify a bunch of his "beastly sinful flesh" in the process. Itís what we at FMHCCI like to call How Do You Want Your Fire... Now Or Later?
So is this really wild or what? Well just wait until you hear the rest of the story! Because item #5 on Godís list for the Pastor was the Scripture from Hosea 6:1-3... and it goes like this: "Come and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth."
Now that Scripture really blows me away! I mean the situation in the Pastorís life was extremely critical that Wednesday, and the Almighty was urgently telling him to "return unto the Lord" by selling-off his motorcycle and giving me the $1200. Because if he would have been obedient to Godís Word, his "beastly flesh" would have died-off during the two days it would have taken him to sell his motorcycle and get me the money. It was Godís Will that the Pastor do some dying, but on the third day he would have been resurrected and born-again into a new life.
You see this is what "Jesus Christ and Him Crucified" is all about. Jesus perfected The Crucifixion Process so that we can have the Holy Spirit to strengthen us and guide us through ours. We must continually die to our flesh and be born in the Spirit in order to be saved!
And that takes us on into item #6 with my twelve (12) FMHCCI business cards. The Lord told me to give Pastor Duseau exactly that number of business cards along with the message that "theyíre seeds for him to plant... and donít waste a single one!"
So why do you figure the number twelve (12)? Well Iíll give you more on that one later because itís now time for item #7: "And when one of them that sat at meat with him [Jesus] heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God." (Luke 14:15)
Now in order to understand that one little old verse youíve gotta connect it to the fourteen (14) in front of it. And iffin you do that youíll find that the "one of them who sat at meat with" Jesus was none other than one of those self-righteous Pharisees. In other words this "one" who spoke actually thought his reservations for Heaven were already in place... when exactly the opposite was true. Because you see it was this same religious group of people that Jesus spoke about in Luke 12:1 and Matthew 23:13-15 ó "Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy." - "But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in... Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves."
Was that straightforward enough for you? I mean when it came to getting out the Truth about the Pharisees, Jesus the Christ did not pull any punches. In fact getting back to this thing about "eating bread in the kingdom of God", the Pharisees were eating bread but it wasnít the "Bread of Life". Godís Bread is only produced in Godís kingdom. In fact when it comes to the "bread" our human bodies feed on at the "cellular level", weíre either eating the "Bread of Life" or the "bread of death" (see Benny Hinn And The Catholic Church! (4/30/00)). Because you see the first type of bread is produced by obeying the Word of God and the second type by disobeying it. And without getting all bogged-down in "cell metabolism", it was the life lived by the Pharisees who claimed to know God but yet rejected Godís Word that caused their bodies to produce the main ingredient for the "bread of death" which is "leaven".
You see this "leaven" stuff is actually produced inside our bodies when we claim the Saving Power of Jesus but yet refuse to walk in obedience to His Word. This "deadly" stuff is what our bodies actually feed on when we claim the Name of Jesus (Christ) but yet live in rebellion to Him (anti-Christ). And of course seeing how this entire discussion is directed at Pastor Duseau, why donít we just head on into item #8 and shed a little more Light on this subject of Bread: "You are taking of His Flesh and Blood but yet thereís unconfessed sin in your life."
So what do you figure that oneís all about? Well to make it a little easier to understand what do you say we check out the following Scripture first: "Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he [Jesus] also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage." (Hebrews 2:14-15)
OK, so weíve already determined that the human body needs to be "eating bread in Godís kingdom", but yet thatís impossible to do without the help of the Holy Spirit... and of course thatís what the Scripture from Hebrews is all about. Jesus became a Man so that He could take on the sins of the world in His human Body, and, through the Power of the Holy Spirit and His obedience to the Fatherís Word, destroy them (all sins) through His suffering on the Cross. In fact thatís exactly what this "flesh and blood" stuff is all about. Sin "lives" in the flesh and blood of the human body and of course thatís where it must be destroyed. So Jesus became "Flesh and Blood" in order for the sin of the world to be destroyed in His "Flesh and Blood Body"! And now that itís been done, anyone and everyone believing in it can receive the Power of the Holy Spirit to "sorta like" do the same.
So you see when we believe in what Jesus did at the Cross we can receive His "sin-killing Flesh and Blood" in the form of His Holy Spirit. And of course as we receive His Holy Spirit Power to overcome our sins ó "taking of the Flesh and Blood of Jesus" ó weíre actually taking of His sin-killing Power through His Holy Spirit.
And having said all that we can go back to Godís item #8 for Pastor Duseau: "You are taking of His Flesh and Blood but yet thereís unconfessed sin in your life." Because you see when a person receives the Holy Spirit but yet refuses to obey whatever the Holy Spirit tells them to do they are actually committing one more gross sin against God the Father. And of course as that sinful Christian continues right on receiving Power through the Holy Spirit they are in affect "taking of Jesusí Flesh and Blood with the unconfessed sin of disobedience still in them". Understand?
Well now that we understand all that we can progress on into Godís item #9 for the Pastor: "And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins." (Isaiah 11:1-5)
The Scripture weíve just read explains ó through the example of Jesus Christ ó how the Holy Spirit works in us and through us to kill-off our sinful flesh and rebirth us in His Holy Spirit. Itís a seven step process thatís defined by the "Seven Spirits of Christ" with the end results being the Christian having a "mind" for God. The sinful flesh gets crucified and replaced by His Spirit, but it only comes about through a walk of total obedience to the Father.
And having said all that we can go to Item #10: "Sacrifice...die to the flesh and be born in His Spirit."
So are you starting to see where the Lord was headed-to with His ten (10) item list? The Pastor needs to get rid of some of his "beastly flesh" and it just so happens that Father God has made a way through the sacrifice of his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Wow and double wow!
I mean can you believe it? Well I can! Because you see what happened after I presented Godís "ten item list" to the Pastor, the Pastor had a few for me. In fact the Lord had instructed the Pastor to give me three items from his ministry, with the following being an excerpt from item #1; the God Is Able pamphlet:
God Is Able
God called me to bring people into contact with the anointing of their covenant right to financial increase. This end time revelation is needed now to supply money and material for the greatest harvest of souls in human history.
Donít you just love the way God works? I mean have you ever heard the expression "Practice what you preach"? Well thatís what the Almighty is saying to the Pastor. Because if he would only "hock his Harley" and give us the cash heíd not only save his own hide but also help this poor old minister (Dad) continue harvesting souls for the glory of God.
And now for item #2 which was one (3 x 4) handy dandy index card with the following "healing" message printed on it:
How I Stay in Perfect Health
(Front of card)
1. I am a child of God. (I John 1:12)
2. I am the body of Christ. (I Corinthians 12:27)
3. Iím redeemed from the curse. (Galatians 3:13)
4. I forbide any sickness or disease to operate in my body. (Matthew 18:18)
5. Every organ and tissue of my body works in the perfection to which God created it. (Genesis 1:26)
6. I walk in perfect health all the days of my life, because greater is He (Jesus) that is in me, than he (Satan) that is in the world. (I John 4:4)
(Back of card)
I walk in perfect health all the days of my life because I am redeemed from the curse of the law: sin, sickness and poverty. Greater is He that is in me than He who is in the World. Therefore every sickness, disease, unhealthy germ, or virus that touches my body dies immediately on contact with the name of Jesus. I forbid any sickness and disease to operate in my body.
Furthermore, I command every organ, tissue and cell to function perfectly in order to which God created it. I am part of the Body of Jesus Christ. There is no sickness in His body. Therefore, there is no sickness in my body. So I walk in perfect health all the days of my life.
Thank You, Father, for Your plan of redemption. Thank You, Jesus, for paying the price and buying me back. Thank You, Holy Spirit, for teaching me to use my authority and power, in the spirit world and in the natural world. Amen
Now along with the Pastorís Word of Faith error concerning "Jesus died spiritually" is the preceding Word of Faith error concerning "name-it and claim-it". I mean the information printed on that one little old index card is ó putting it mildly ó straight from the pit of Hell! The human body will not react to our commands "In The Name Of Jesus" but it will react to the Power of the Holy Spirit working through us as we walk in obedience to His Divine Leading.
And now for the third and final item that the Lord had Pastor Duseau give to me. Are you ready for this one? Would you believe a total of twelve (12) flyers announcing the Pastorís It Is Time show on KSCE Channel 38? In fact along with the programís information was a picture of the Pastor and the Word of Faith error proclaiming "Claim your inheritance: Power, Prosperity & Pride in Jesus."
So what do you think about that? Well the really amazing thing about this last item was the total number of them. Because you see just as the Lord had instructed me to give the Pastor twelve (12) of my FMHCCI business cards He also instructed the Pastor to give me twelve of his flyers... however, there was a "difference" in the numbers. You see his twelve was divided into two (2) separate groups of six (6) ó six flyers (5 x 8) and six flyers (8.5 x 11).
Now to take that subtle little difference just a little bit closer to Godís intended Truth, when the Pastor handed over the flyers to me he made the God-directed comment that my twelve (12) represented the "twelve disciples" whereas his six (6) represented "man".
Are you starting to see what God was trying to tell the Pastor? The number of cards I gave him ó twelve (12) ó is the number of Godís True Church ó the twelve disciples... whereas the number of flyers the Pastor gave me ó two pairs of six (6) or twelve (12) divided by two (2) ó is the number of fallen man or the broken church. Itís called Christians "taking of the Flesh and Blood of Jesus" (Godís Holy Spirit) while still maintain their "beastly" bodies and souls. The number of the apostate church is "66" and this is the number of Pastor Duseau!!!
And to further emphasize the importance of completing the Holy Spiritís seven (7) step Salvation Program (Isaiah 11:2), the following Scripture is kinda like His guaranteed Promise of the Believerís True Inheritance. Because as you should remember, it was the seventh function of the Holy Spirit working His change in the believing Christian that produced the final product of "fear of the LORD": "For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts." (Malachi 4:1-3)
What a powerful message from the Lord... and one that should not be ignored by Pastor Duseau! Will it change his mind? Will he sacrifice his Harley and take up his cross and follow Jesus?
Well before we shut this one down thereís just one more very convincing piece of evidence. I mean God Almighty was going the extra mile in His effort to get Pastor Duseau back on the right track. Because you see as we were ending our conversation, and I was likewise putting up the Bible I was told to bring, I made the very simple comment that I didnít understand why in the world my Heavenly Father had instructed me to bring it. I mean up until that time it served no useful purpose in our meeting... that is until the Pastor confessed to the fact that he had one just like it and the Lord had told him to start using it.
And with that in mind, the following e-mail is what the Lord had me send the Pastor the following day:
To: Michael Duseau

Subject: Parallel Greek Bible
Dear Brother Michael,
What a day yesterday was in the Lord! I was completely drained in my spirit by the time I got back to my apartment. So many great and mighty Truths were spoken through you yesterday, and one of them concerns the Zodhiates Parallel Greek Word Study Bible.
You see it was this morning that the Lord took me to James 5:14-15 in that same Study Bible in order to show me just one reason why He wants you to get into it for His Word. Because reading from the note on page 762 we find the following: "...the Lord gives His children the freedom to pray for all that they would wish the Heavenly Father to grant them. However, He knows and gives the best according to His will. God's best may be sickness and privation, instead of health and wealth, but it is designed to bring the believer into a closer walk with Him (Rom. 8:28)."
It's what you call "How Do You Want Your Fire... Now Or Later?" and of course it's my God-called involvement with you to help you walk right on into that fire... now, instead of later. If you have the Faith to obey God's Word concerning the $1200 then you will be on your way. For your sake I hope you make it ó "Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left [us] of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard [it]." (Hebrews 4:1-2)
In the Lord Jesus Christ,
Donít get messed up with the things of this world... which even include apostate religions. Seek the Spirit of God, walk in the Spirit of God, and Keep On Keeping The Faith In Jesus!!!
