View of God

train them young, e-version

Your view of God works to help shape your entire earthly reality.  He instructs us through His Word (Exo. 20:3-4) not to make up our own idea of who He is, how He feels or what He is doing.

We hope this offering will help you to know God more clearly, seeing Him more accurately, so that your reality can be formed in Truth.  Streaming audio:

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

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.

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.

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)!

Your heart or your life (message banned from Facebook)

Excerpt from full post:


“Your heart or your life, God’s setting somethin’ ablaze!”

Burning Bush 

When Jesus said, “Everyone will be salted with fire…” (Mark 9:49), He meant those you’ve found fault with will be salted with fire, He meant YOU will be salted with fire, “the left” will be salted with fire, “the right” will be salted with fire, racists will be salted with fire, Donald Trump will be salted with fire, Antifa will be salted with fire, the greater Houston area, Texas, America, Vladimir Putin, North Korea and the Taliban will all be salted with fire.  Getting the point?  When He said everyone, He meant…EVERYONE!
 
Here’s a 4-minute excerpt as we’re walking out
the third week of what God has recently Breathed upon us.

 
God’s fire is designed to burn away the worthless things from your heart and life that you have been clinging to (unbelief, doubt, self-pity, worry, higher affections than Jesus, etc.).  He desires to bring you to a place where not only your heart but all of your circumstances have such value to God that the whole of your being is upheld by His pleasure through no effort of your own – as a star in the night sky among this dark and perverse generation (Phi. 2:12-16).  Your life can make a huge difference! Imagine, one star (the sun) warms this whole planet.
 
Don’t worry, it’s safe to give up all for/to Jesus.  If you surrender something He intends for you to have, He will receive what you have intimately offered (in worship to Him), place His glory upon it and return it to you safe and sound; again, as something that He takes pleasure in preserving and displaying, for His glory, through no effort of your own.
 
Anything that you are not willing to sacrifice for the purpose of “making Christ greater” is an idol.  Obviously, He is already infinitely greater than everything; everything else is worthless compared to Him!  Therefore, this is about keeping Him first, by far, in your heart and life.  And, “Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs” (Jonah 2:8, from “the belly of a whale”).  Jonah came to His senses amidst the most intense of suffering.  America is a type of Jonah and it’s time for her to admit (let in anew) the fiery Truth of God, Jesus Christ.
 
Don’t forsake the priceless grace that can be yours today.
 

Don’t Resist Jesus!

Excerpt from full post:

Last week’s publication promised, “EVERYONE will be salted with fire…” (Mark 9:49, caps mine for emphasis).

Since then, we have been enjoying God’s all consuming love.  And we gladly share the Promise with you here, too:  A fiery 3-minute excerpt from Sunday (via Susan Totman).

We didn’t plan it this way, but Susan served on the heels of Salted with Fire and Rising Wonder Women (the latter was published in Australia the day she ministered but she hadn’t read it).

Full message through Minister Susan,
Don’t Resist Jesus,” 71 minutes.

 

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, 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, 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.

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 sowing faith, hope and love in His Presence. May every ‘wild’ place – in your life, my life and planetwide – be cultivated by God, turned into and Eden of fellowship with Him.

Shine with us!

Excerpt from full post:

“You might not be able to change the world, but you have been given the power to change ‘their’ world!”  What a statement from God to each of His children, wherever they are set or called to serve.

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”  Jesus Christ, Matthew 5:14-16

Together, we are changing worlds unto the glory of God!

The letter-writing campaign to Jesus’ brothers (Matt. 25:40) in maximum security prison continues to produce God-glorifying wonders, the elderly home visitations continue to renew its participants, the assembly (Church-plant) in Michigan City continues to seek the Lord, sacrificially, and God continues to provide Susan and I numerous awe-inspiring opportunities each week to share Christ’s Presence, love, healing, power & authority in various energizing and unforeseen ways.

Thank you for sowing into our journey, impacting the expansion of God’s Kingdom in ways that you likely do not know!  We invite, welcome, celebrate and bless your continued devotion and/or new participation.  Give a tax-deductible gift now!

Merry Christmas!

From full post

Two Christmas testimonies, shared to glorify God through your enrichment:

1.  God put it on our hearts to send a certain family money in the mail.  We did. Days went by and we did not hear from the family.  I sent a text.  But look how this unfolded.  The family reports that they were gathered around the dinner table with their bills laid out before them, wondering what on earth they were going to do because they did not have the resources needed to get by.  An unexpected expense had presented itself, leaving them incapable of caring for themselves.  As they discussed the problem, resolving that there was no way out of the dilemma, my text chimed in, ‘Check the mail lately?  Kisses to you – Merry Christmas.’  They sent their 5-year old out to check the mail and he brought back the card we sent which included the money they needed.  They said that everyone sat dumbfounded, in awesome wonder at God, and that they continue to give Him praise for the love He showed them.  Imagine, the help was on the way to them before the unexpected expense presented itself, before they even knew they had a God-sized need.

Isaiah 65:24, ‘Before they call I will answer;
while they are yet speaking, I will hear’ …”
