Philippians 2: 6. Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7. But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8. And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. KJV


I have read this scripture several times. Today when my social media guru gave me the scripture of the week. It hit me! Hard. Jesus, made of himself “NO REPUTATION”. When I looked up the word, the definition was “emptied himself”. Jesus was not looking for a position or title. As a matter of fact, HE had the highest title to be held....HE WAS GOD. HE IS GOD and will always be GOD. Yet, thought is was robbery to be equal with HIS Father he “emptied Himself. Selah.


All of HIS divine Glory, HIS Majestic Holiness, all HIS titles...gone. Why? To take the “form of a servant”. Selah


Too many people come into the church, the house of GOD (HIS house) looking for a position. They want a title. They want to be held in high reverence. This person, positions themselves in the authority of the pastor. (church splits). They did not come to serve GOD, they intended to be served.


But Jesus took the heart of a servant, HE came to serve with humility. HE took the form of “man”. HE experienced the emotions, pain, hurt, rejection, humiliation, betrayal, and denial that man experiences. HE did not retaliate. HE humbled HIMSELF.

Jesus had one focus, obedience unto HIS FATHER.


“But made himself of no reputation... he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”


Jesus came to serve. It cost HIM!

If being a child of GOD is not costing you something, ask yourself, am I serving me or GOD?

If your interest is gaining a title or position, you are not emptied yet. Therefore, you are not walking in obedience.


“But made himself of no reputation.”

The celebration of the cross is meaningless if you are not empty.

In HIS LOVE

On Sunday night I tested positive for COVID. It has left me fatigued, body aches and my throat feels raw making it difficult to speak. Early last month I posted a blog on the backward spelling of COVID is actually a demon spirit. Three times through bronchitis and now this the devil has tried to silence my voice. He can’t. Because BTW is your voice too! Continue to pray, war, read the word, share it and make your stand for HOLINESS. We will prevail!!


I am not canceling another service. Saturday some of the BTW will meet at 3260 The Alameda Santa Clara at 2:30 for service. Join if you can. Let Satan know. He does not stop ANYTHING!!! BTW is made up of warriors!


I am here warring. I will not allow shame, pain or anything else to stand in my way.

How many times is “I” reflected in your life?

Ecclesiastes 2: 3. I sought in mine heart to give myself unto wine, yet acquainting mine heart with wisdom; and to lay hold on folly, till I might see what was that good for the sons of men, which they should do under the heaven all the days of their life.

4. I made me great works; I builded me houses; I planted me vineyards:

5. I made me gardens and orchards, and I planted trees in them of all kind of fruits: 6. I made me pools of water, to water therewith the wood that bringeth forth trees:

7. I got me servants and maidens, and had servants born in my house; also I had great possessions of great and small cattle above all that were in Jerusalem before me:

8. I gathered me also silver and gold, and the peculiar treasure of kings and of the provinces: I gat me men singers and women singers, and the delights of the sons of men, as musical instruments, and that of all sorts.

9. So I was great, and increased more than all that were before me in Jerusalem: also my wisdom remained with me.

10. And whatsoever mine eyes desired I kept not from them, I withheld not my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced in all my labour: and this was my portion of all my labour.

11. Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.


NOTE: Solomon profoundly proclaimed the accomplishments of man. Yes, he was able to accomplish much. Yet, in the end “I” was ALL in vain. His spirit was vexed and there was no profit at all.

Everything he accomplished was without GOD. Unless GOD, is FIRST in your life and all you do is unto HIM, there is no gain. IN THE END…Your spirit is vexed while you sit surrounded by all your accomplishments. You loose!

What does it profit a man to gain the WHOLE WORLD and loose his own soul?

Father, In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, remove all the idols in my life. Remove all of my “I” selfish ambitions. May everything I accomplish be unto you! May you be GLORIFIED in me and through me. I surrender my I’s to you. In the name of JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH. My LORD My GOD!
