Taking Canaan

excerpt from full post:

Thanksgiving pic

“There is no condemnation for those who live in the attitude of God’s mind” (a paraphrase born out through this week’s message).

Some say, “Attitude determines altitude!”  The truth is, yielding to God’s attitude lifts you, helping you to overcome “negative inner vows.”  God has more forgiveness for you to take! 

I think the following quotes from Oswald Chambers echoes the messages we’ve relayed in recent weeks and also nicely introduces the Word of God this week:

“…Compared with the miracle of the forgiveness of sin, the experience of sanctification is small. Sanctification is simply the wonderful expression or evidence of the forgiveness of sins in a human life.

We are designed with a great capacity for God, but sin, our own individuality, and wrong thinking keep us from getting to Him. God delivers us from sin— we have to deliver ourselves from our individuality.

We must see to it that we aid and assist God, and not stand against Him by saying, ‘I can’t do that.’ We must discipline ourselves. God will not bring our ‘arguments…and every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ’ (2 Corinthians 10:5)— we have to do it. Don’t say, ‘Oh, Lord, I suffer from wandering thoughts.’ Don’t suffer from wandering thoughts.

It is what Paul meant in Galatians 2:20 when he said, ‘I have been crucified with Christ…’ His individuality had been broken and his spirit had been united with his Lord; not just merged into Him, but made one with Him. ‘…you shall be free indeed’— free to the very core of your being; free from the inside to the outside…”

 

This Thanksgiving you will be in our hearts and your name will be crossing our lips as we gratefully point out to God all the wonderful blessings He has provided us in our Promised Land.  We always praise God for you and hereby thank you for being part of God’s manifest attitude of favor towad us!  May you enjoy a fulfilling, healthy, peaceful and prosperous holiday season, ever mindful of the grace of God in Christ.

Through Jesus’ Giving Name,
Robert & Susan Totman

Glorify God!

 

excerpts from full post:

Sunflowers

Many ‘say’ they want to glorify God…but a look at their lives over time says otherwise.

Believer, you have power to glorify God today…even now!

Our hearts are to see Jesus glorified through you inhabiting your Canaan, your Promised Land.  This message can help you get there without delay.

Glorify God, excerpts (14 minutes)
Glorify God, full message (47 minutes)

God’s Word says that there is a battle within each believer which seeks to keep them out of their Promised Land (Judges 3:1-2, James 4:1-10, 1 Peter 2:11).  This message helps the listener to understand red flags of defeat and how to wave your Banner of Victory, producing the Promise through intimacy with God.

Thank you, again and again and again, for helping us!  We don’t take your support for granted but understand that it is the gift of God so that together we are heavenly lights which shine in a dark and depraved generation (Phi. 2:12-16, NIV), each doing its own part to bring Redemption, Christ, to those who will receive His help.

Through Jesus’ Name,
Robert & Susan Totman

your Canaan

excerpts from full post:

Robert S. Totman, keynote

Oh yes, this too is the Day of our Lord!  We trust you are partnering with God to bring all things into submission to His Christ, our Messiah.

God is not greedy or stingy, looking to withhold what is good from you!  However, in holy jealousy He requires your devotion to the uttermost; this is what’s best for you and is an open chute from heaven over your life in Jesus (God’s grace), creating your Canaan on earth as it is in heaven.  Most of us understand Canaan to represent your “Promised Land” and we pray this message will help get you there…today.

God’s Word says that there is a battle within each believer which seeks to keep them out of their Promised Land (Judges 3:1-2, James 4:1-10, 1 Peter 2:11).  This message helps the listener to understand red flags of defeat and how to wave your Banner of Victory, producing the Promise through intimacy with God.

A Double Portion

The last publication I sent you was on October 9th, right after the honor of serving as keynote speaker at the Teen Challenge Gala in Duluth, Minnesota.  As previously disclosed, the event was heavenly…on earth!  Praise Jesus.  However, Susan and I – both – experienced an excruciating sense of something very heavy “of God” left undone upon our return to North Dakota.  Turns out that we were sharing in Jesus’ suffering; what we humans call…patience.

After a few days of languishing, circumstances “called” us back to Duluth.  Having followed Love, a curious series of events then provided a phone call from the Senior Pastor of Great Lakes Church, Pastor John Halvorsen.  He invited me to preach for his Sunday service!  Here is a link to photos of our second visit (after clicking on any individual picture through this link, you can click on the little “i” for commentary that explains the aforementioned circumstances).  We are very glad to deliver to you what was first given to us, a double portion!

First Message:
Embrace the Flames (streaming audio), October 15th

at Great Lakes Church
(Pastor John speaks for the first and last
4 minutes of the 67-minute audio file.)

The Presence of the LORD is very pronounced within Great Lakes Church!

The Apostle Paul said to the Church, “…you welcomed me as if I were an angel of God…” (Gal. 4:14); likewise, this assembly received us as heaven-sent, honoring our King.  Pastor John even voiced interest in recommending us to other assemblies.  This harmonizes with what we believe God spoke to us before the October 5th Gala.  Could it be the “heavy of God” thing we sensed that needed to be accomplished?

We believe so, but the anguish we felt before has changed to a blissful rest.  After leaving Duluth a second time we heard God saying, “Wait, Daughter of Zion, for Your Kinsman-Redeemer will not rest until this matter has been settled.”  Now the burden of our long-suffering (patience) has become easy, “Thank You, Jesus!”

Hand back to the plow in North Dakota, not looking back but up – our Help comes from the LORD!

Sunday’s message, October 22nd, relays some heavy-duty, heavenly business too.  I just can’t even begin to relay it here…except to say that without a radical revival your whole world is about to be turned upside down.  God has sent His flame; you might as well embrace the fire.

Your Double Portion, the Second Message:
Deeper Still, 48 minutes

Teen Challenge and “His Majesty’s Air Force”

Excerpts from full post:

Oh, what a great feast of ingathering that was initiated in Duluth, MN, on October 5th at their Adult & Teen Challenge!  Thank you for helping to send us, thereby participating in our divine call and storing up rewards for yourself in the Presence of God.

The following is a 67-second video, sharing the first dream I had that wasn’t a nightmare after working as an air traffic controller in New York on 9/11:

Speaking at MnTC, Robert S. Totman

The auditorium was quite full, from front to back, glorifying God.  I had prayed that He would “arrest” the audience with His Words and I believe the pictures through the following link indicate that God answered my prayers:  To see more photos and videos, click this link.  Special thanks to the profressional photographer, “Kevin,” for these wonderful memories, forever documented.

As usual, I sought the Lord for a debrief regarding this speaking opportunity.  God was faithful to share His point of view with me, although what He shared was not expected and brought an increased sense of responsibility regarding the function and coming of His glorious Kingdom.  What He revealed became the name’s sake of Sunday’s (Oct. 8th) message; we are certainly expecting great things from God as we step into our recently published “New Beginnings!”


Thank you, again and again and again, for helping us!  We don’t take your support for granted but understand that it is the gift of God so that 
together we are heavenly lights which shine in a dark and depraved generation (Phi. 2:12-16, NIV), each doing its own part to bring Redemption, Christ, to those who will receive His help.

Your New Beginning!

Excerpt from full post:

blank pages

We’ve passed through an intense season of repentance.  This hasn’t been “for nothing!”  Trusting in the atoning work of Christ, as evidenced via repentance (proving your faith geniune), opens you to receive the rewards of Jesus’ suffering.  This begins with you being declared innocent by God.  The photo above of the blank pages is a reflection of the sins recorded against those who live lives of repentance in response to the grace obtained in Jesus Christ.

With your slate wiped clean, it is fit and ready for the hand (power) of God to begin making you a love letter to the earth!

Your New Beginning, 3-minutes of excerpts
Your New Beginning, 53-minute message

(I described a woman with the back of her hand on her forehead at 49 minutes;
the image should be that of someone “lovesick” for Jesus.)

Thank you for your prayers and support, so that we can, together, take the message of New Beginnings to people who have been devestated.

October 5th in Duluth, MN, at the Adult & Teen Challenge.

They have created a 30-second TV commercial for my upcoming speaking engagement, a God-glorifying celebration of freedom from addiction:

Days of Noah, Awe & Repentance

From full post:

30 second video

(September 2017 earthquake in Mexico with both banks of
the river heaving and trees swaying at their trunks.)

We truly are in the days of Noah, awe & repentance.

I pray, however, this Word will be in stark contrast to what is traditionally taught regarding the days of Noah, “Oh, Jesus is about to appear to end it all.”

No. No. No.

Instead, join us in faith that Jesus is already here, now, to put an end to everything that is unholy in your life and ours, thereby liberating the earth from its bondage to decay.

It’s true:  Jesus is flooding the earth, now, with His Living Waters to “destroy all flesh” (old-nature hindrances to His praise).

 

Through the turmoil, we plan to keep placing
God’s business ahead of our own:

While, as missionaries, our ministry (Bethesda) has never had a concerted fundraiser, we THRILL to help other ministries in this way.  Why “THRILL”?

When sent to The Church of Jacksonville (in Florida), God used me to open up over $120,000 in less than 5 minutes for their children’s ministry.  When sent to Triumph Christian Center (in Houston, Texas), I said, “The God of glory thunders, right now!” and as the words “right now!” crossed my lips the entire building shook under the clap of Body penetrating thunder as an apparent lightning strike coincided with my words directly overhead; the Church went from deep in the red that day, financially, to having more than enough.

Yes, we THRILL to help other ministries raise money – following Jesus.  Come be a part of another move of God on October 5th in Duluth, MN, at the Adult & Teen Challenge there.

They have created a 30-second TV commercial for my upcoming speaking engagement, a heaven-sent fundraiser.  May Christ be glorified through the liberation and enrichment of His dearly loved creation!

 

The Blessed Flames of Promotion

Excerpt from full post:

Graphic, Corridors in the Sky

A 9/11 memorial offering…as America deals with many disasters today (It’s also our 8th anniversary, marking the day we began our labor in North Dakota through Jesus, which turned out to be 8 years after 9/11!).

God once said to us, “Don’t blame the flame!”  

After a month of publishing, “Everyone will be salted with fire,” I pray that Jesus’ Words (Mark 9:49) are coming more and more into focus so that He may be honored far and wide.  Mark 16:20, “And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by accompanying signs.”

Please consider our 9/11 memorial offering to God; may it help empower you to walk as a bullet-proof child of the Most High (like the song)!

.

 

Walk AND chew gum

Job 12:2,  “No doubt you are the people, and wisdom will die with you.”

The wisdom from above is impartial, the fruit of being right before God begins with confident quietness and real love doesn’t have to have its own way.

The verse from Job above are his words of frustration with the know-it-alls that God later reprimanded.

With so many destructive intensities unfolding, now is the time for the Body of Christ to rise up and shine, united and moving forward against evil in love.  Can’t the Body walk and chew gum at the same time?!  From a very brief skimming-over of social media, apparently not.  “I’m right! You are wrong!”

The right foot moves forward while the left foot rests – same Body working together as each member does its part.  It’s called…get this…“walking.” Otherwise, we have what is being displayed to the lost world today:  The Body of Christ is a hopping bunny rabbit?  No wonder it fits into the world’s sight of Easter so well.

Both feet want to move forward together, arms & elbows flailing, without any regard or cooperation with the other members of the Body whatsoever.

The right knee curses the left knee, “under its Anointing.”  They holler at one another, “God judges the unrepentant!  He scourges all those He loves – you’re an idiot and all people should avoid you!”  Meanwhile, not listening because the other knee is quite convinced that it too is a mouth, “The Cross has satisfied God’s wrath for all time!  It’s His loving kindness that brings sinners to salvation – you’re an idiot that all people should avoid!”  The world’s response?  “Those people are all lunatics.”

Geez, if we could get those two “legs” working together, discharging their respective God-given energies without back-biting, we’d have true revival “on our hands.”

The wisdom that has its foundation in fearing God delights to admit that it doesn’t know its left from its right, no matter how many times it’s been through any given drill, “I could speak up or I can be quiet.  I could exert energies to move forward or I could wait right here and enjoy You instead.  Be my Lord, while I delight to follow You in this moment (movement).”

The King of Right set such a fine example of being quiet through injustice, entrusting Himself to Him who judges justly, that all believers everywhere are instructed to follow His example.  It doesn’t say in that Biblical passage, “Unless you really think you are right, then, by all means, give’em a ration of what you think is right!”  No, that’s the chaos-bringing spirit of strife and there you will find every kind of evil.  Look around, America.

Love doesn’t insist on its own way…get this, Christian, even to its own death.  In fact, when Christians demonstrate this self-sacrificing love of God the world will see less of wild and erratic spams and more of the Spirit of Jesus alive and well in the earth – doing His wonders.

Is it too hard to believe that God still winnows (a violent process) so that people can better appreciate the things that really matter?  Can’t one follower of Christ minister “This is God’s wrath which comes to the children of disobedience” while another follower of Christ shares, “The Lamb of God has taken away the sins of the world; we can forever escape the wrath of God through Jesus!”  Apparently, God is being unreasonable to ask His Body to walk and chew gum at the same time.  The right foot thinks it can kick the left foot into submission [to the point of view God gave it] without any regard for the left foot’s “command from God.”

Galatians 5:15,  “…if you keep attacking each other like wild animals, you had better watch out or you will destroy yourselves.”

It would be nice to see people subduing themselves, before God, ahead of presuming to make spirits, storms and nations submit to the Spirit about which they boast.  God’s got work to do and it starts, every day, in the mirror that is before your face and mine – this restores the salt to its saltiness, each grain making a difference in God’s heart. Job was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil. He lost nearly all that he had. But he never lost the approval of his God…and that proved to be more than enough.

Review the last month’s titles

A review of a month’s titles from “the Word of the LORD,” as we “pray and watch” in this move of God:

Our intercession:
* “Cheerfully endure,” August 6, 2017
* “EVERYONE will be salted with fire: The earth has nothing I desire besides You, Lord,” August 13, 2017
* “Everyone will be salted with fire: Don’t resist Jesus!” August 20, 2017
* “Everyone will be salted with fire: Your heart or your life; God’s setting somethin’ ablaze!” August 27, 2017
* “Everyone will be salted with fire: You are bringing disaster on yourself!” September 3, 2017

Our watching:
– August 8th, N. Korea threatens Guam. (it’s valid this time!)
– August 17th, Harvey named; landfall on August 25th.
– Turn of the month, fires spread across American west.
– September 5th, Irma strikes Caribbean.
– 9/11 memorial, opportunity to turn nuclear missiles away via repentance looking more attractive.

“The earth has nothing I desire besides You [Lord]” (Psalm 73:25b) is a reflection of the First Commandment: “You shall put no other god before Me.” Imagine refusing to do that and then calling on “god” to protect your agenda/affection. This too mocks God.
