The #1 question asked on Google is, “WHO IS GOD?” Do you have the answer to that question?

 Facing difficult trials and being purified by fire is very uneasy to our flesh.  I myself have faced many difficult trials where my life was open to the world for ridicule and judgment.  I learned that when we judge, we will be judged the same measure. 

     Luke 6:38 says "Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you."  

     As Christians we often hear this passage when the pastor is talking about the offering.  It sends us the message that when we give our tithes and offerings it will be measured back.  This is true and God has proven this truth to me many times.

     A new revelation came to me about this passage of scripture.  This also pertains to every aspect of life.  Unfortunately, as people we love to judge others and circumstances.  During the times when I have faced public judgment I had a choice.  Can I love my neighbor and the things being said, even if they are not all true?  Often when people pass judgment there is some truth because we are all sinners and never 100% free of failure.  The accuser of the brethren (Satan) often uses others to escalate the stories and consequences to a level that causes hurt and pain to the people involved. 

      In the book of Romans it also came to me that we are all the same in God’s eyes.  The word of God tells us that all have fallen short of the Glory of God.  Romans 3:10 As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one; There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one."  This is in the address to the Roman people but it also lines up with the foundational word of God as a whole.

     The key scripture that I was reading when I gained the revelation about judgment was found in:

     Romans 2:1 Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.

     When we gained this revelation we began to weep.  We asked God; “Why do we have these feelings of judgment?  I know by the word of God not to judge people”.  These scriptures and questions gave me visions. 

     The first dream was Carrie and I judging others.  I looked at who was receiving our judgment and it was US.   As people we often separate ourselves from situations and try to look at the “Truth” of a situation and eliminate the false accusations.  I found myself sitting on a bench as if my judgment of the circumstances actually mattered.  The fact was our interpretation of judgment has no more or less authority than anyone else’s.  In fact I am as guilty as the accused.  God tells us this truth in Romans 2:1

     In this dream I saw all people placed in a pool of water.  The pool was called judgment.  Everyone that God had created was placed in it.  No one was excluded.  In this pool people were throwing judgment out as fast as they could.  They were judging fast and furious.  And their judgement was coming back on them, making the water rise, causing them to drown themselves.  As the water continued to choke out the people they continued to judge and the water continued to rise.  The people were helpless in this sin.  They could not understand how the judgment they passed on others was also their own.  Romans 2:1 Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.   It’s an issue of the heart.

     Then a revelation came to me about Jesus. He came to a people that had fallen.  He came to a place where everyone was in the same pool of judgment.  I believe he looked at us in this pool and said “I am not at the same place spiritually as they are.  But I love them enough to place their judgment on me and destroy it by my death on the cross and resurrection."  The point was that people were separating themselves from others that were judging others or being judged.  Their flesh was trying to place them outside the pool and point the finger at the ones in it.  They had failed at finding enough love in their heart to refrain from judgment.  They had deceived themselves into pointing fingers believing that it will not be pointed back at them.  The word tells us that we are not worthy.

     Jesus was the only one outside of the pool.  He stood blameless from judgment and placed it all on himself anyway.  He succeeded where we couldn’t.  We are often unable to love enough to lower our selfish pride enough to stand by others side without judgment, no matter what. 

     For Jesus the “no matter what” was the ridicule, shame and death at the cross.  We often believe through the self righteousness in us that we don’t deserve to be judged the same as others.  Jesus deserved absolutely none of the judgment and he took it all.  I began to weep when I thought of Jesus being asked to speak for himself on the day of crucifixion.  He remained silent, refusing to speak his case.  I believe Jesus didn’t answer because he refused to judge.  The truth of his righteousness would have destroyed everyone.  His judgment was blameless.  The people were all in the “Pool”.  I believe he gave us the ultimate example when he chose to remain silent when he had the chance to Judge.  He is the only one that ever had the right to judge.  He didn’t.  Thank God for the obedience of Jesus! We need to walk in the understanding that HE gave us!

Christians are people who recognize they are not righteous by their own work, but only by Jesus' righteousness alone.  Christians are bought back by Grace through Faith because they recognize Jesus as their righteousness and substitue for their failure.  Thank God for His forgiveness!

God brought me a “Revelation” about the freedom we enjoy in America.  This freedom is not only a physical freedom but also more of a “Spiritual” freedom.  I simply believe that freedom comes from the heart of people.  It’s an ability to be free emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically. 

In society we most often think of FREEDOM as the physical aspect.  I believe America’s freedom was originally established through the spiritual form of freedom as well as the physical.  Christian men who served the one true God of the Bible established this spiritual freedom and it has been perverted and left out of the current “American” equation.

First of all, to have freedom means that you are not in bondage.  The law of the Old Testament along with the rules and other rituals of religions such as Islam are established through bondage of being able to “perform” well enough to be spiritually “FREE” in this life here on earth.  This is simply and impossible position for people to obtain.

The word of God tells us that our Freedom comes from being released from the “Bondage” of Sin and death.  Romans 8:2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.


The question is this.  “If Christ is the way to be set “FREE” from the bondage of flesh then how can America compromise the basic foundation of FREEDOM that is established through Jesus?”  The answer is; it can’t.  There is no spiritual freedom in mankind without the foundation of Jesus Christ as Lord.  Never has been and never will be. 

The word “Free” appears 73 times in the word of God.  In most every context, it establishes the way to be free as to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  This is a spiritual freedom. 

Very seldom does the bible ever talk about being set free from “PHYSICAL” bondage.  In fact almost all of God’s messengers were placed in physical prison for their spiritual position in God including Peter and Paul.  They stood for spiritual freedom and found themselves in physical bondage.  One might conclude that to be spiritually free takes courage and willingness to sacrifice our flesh.  Jesus did!

Some of the most significant scriptures of freedom given to us through his word include:

Romans 8:1-2 Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 


This scripture is talking about “Spiritual Freedom” that comes from the very soul of people, and has a much higher relevance than physical freedom because of its eternal nature.

Physical freedom is important because we are free to be able to read and establish the word of God in our hearts, but its temporary nature keeps us as people yearning for the eternal freedom that comes from serving the one true living God that has promised us FREEDOM from spiritual bondage now and forever!!

When God gave me this revelation of Spiritual Freedom He sends it to His people as an awakening of His truth.  Wake up America and understand what “Freedom” really is and WHOM it comes from.  This freedom of life is God’s and He alone provides it.  We cannot share freedom with false spiritual teachings or rituals that are established through judgment of “WORKS” or look at it as a “Physical Concept”

I believe our forefathers never intended for the word “Freedom” to be a license to do whatever you want.  This seems to be our social and government perspective that America has turned it into. 

The Christian men that founded this nation did so with the desire to be physically free so they could worship God in a way to become spiritually free.  They were versed in the Word of God and fought for a freedom that they believed in.  This freedom is found in scripture, not from some new pragmatic definition of the word that has been watered down into an unrecognizable term.  The Freedom that these men fought and died for came from the one true God that bought our freedom by sending His son to the cross to remove us from bondage.  It came through our Savior Jesus Christ.    

God is love and we also cannot be threatened into “Spiritual Freedom” by other religions physical violence or punishment.  It’s silly to even think that someone can be scared into accepting a so-called God.

The enemy has confused our American Society about the definition of freedom and where it comes from.  We have got to get back to the “TRUTH” and knowledge of God’s word and re-establish this county the way God originally designed it through His people.

John 8:31-32 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."


Romans 6:22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.


The word Freedom has been socially perverted and most of all destructively accepted governmentally into an unrecognizable definition.  People simply use it as an excuse to do whatever they want.  It’s become a license to operate in sin causing an ever-increasing moral decay in society. 

No matter how bad liberalism allows people to do whatever they want, it will always leave mankind seeking for moral value, spiritual significants and acceptance for their eternal soul.  This destructive mindset that is taking place in America will simply keep people bound and controlled to the point of ineffectiveness and emptiness no matter how “PHYSICALLY” free they are. 

The spiritual freedom of God is what’s under attack.  We have to know the truth to be able to combat this enemy.  That truth is found in the word of God and brings forth true spiritual freedom.

 Tim Tebow is a player I didn't like.  I am an OU graduate and a die-hard OU football fan.  Therefore you can imagine how I feel about OU losing to Florida in the National Title game a couple years back.  This being said, I have made some conclusions after analyzing Tebow the past few weeks.  Let me rephrase.  I have learned to base what I see on the Word of God!  The Truth has revealed an awesome story!

I am watching Tebow's amazing run and have discerned that he is not only a Christian, but he applies the word of God to his life, so actually he is taking on a different image.  This image is that of Jesus!  It also is the image that the world has referred to as WWJD, or "what would Jesus do?”  Romans 8:29 says; For whom He foreknew, He also predestined [to be] conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Tebow has answered every media question with Grace and humility.  It has become clear that the Word of God abounds in his heart.  When this takes place it is very "Strange" to the world.  In other words, the "world" wouldn't recognize the “Spirit” of God if it were right in front of it.  And it (the world) is putting up a fight.  I'll give you some examples: 

1) Tebow answers every "pride" question by directing the Glory of his response to his teammates and coaches as the reason for his success.  "Hey Tim Great Job!"  Answer "My teammates make me look better than I really am and I trust their ability to make plays.  They deserve the credit, not me." 1 Peter 5:6-7 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

2) He refuses to call out an opponent or challenge their ability.  He simply tells the world that his opponents are great players, and continues to lift them up, even if he falls victim to defeat at the same opponents hands. Matthew 5:43-44 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

3) He trusts the outcomes as God's will even if it doesn't feel good or embarrasses him.  It is clear that Tebow had 3 weeks of ridicule after his awesome start to his career.  When ridicule comes to him the media received the same answers as before from Tebow.  The word of God tells us in Malachi 3:6  "For I [am] the LORD, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.

4) When asked about being an NFL quarterback and how great it is to be idolized, Tim answers that He loves football but his highest priority is the platform it has created to do God’s work!  Wow, imagine that day that a person was basking in his own glory of a professional sport and showing his true priority alignment being in God’s hands.  Matthew 6:33 "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 

A pastor told me about a week ago that people use their faith to either “GET SOMETHING” or to “REVEAL SOMEONE”.  It has become clear that Tebow is here to follow God’s word and to reveal JESUS to people. 

Romans 8:28 tell us “All things work together for good, for those who love the Lord and who are called according to HIS purpose.  The key to this scripture is “FOR GOOD”, not Tebow’s good.  It just so happens that we have the benefits of being Blessed by following God’s Word!  That is Tebow’s position as a person.

I began to wonder how the season was going to play out for Tebow as he boldly stands in the media spotlight revealing our Lord and Savior.  Then I received a revelation of something.  It’s already determined! Jesus said in John 19:30 “IT IS FINISHED!” 

The destiny that Tebow is walking out parables Jesus march to the cross in the Bible. Jesus is in the garden of Gethsemane and said in Luke 22:42 "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done."

The REVELATION that we all should get is the one that Tebow has.  He cannot be defeated with Jesus as His Lord and Savior in winning or losing the game.  JESUS will still be revealed.  Why would Tebow fear the “Giant” in New England?  I am certain that, that giant is no bigger than the one David faced in the Bible and especially not bigger than the enemy Jesus faced at the Cross.  In fact Jesus snatched complete “Victory” at the cross when He perished in His flesh.  The Victory came when He rose from the dead on the 3rd day. 

I believe God was setting Tebow up for His recent “Victory” against the Steelers.  After 3 miserable trying weeks God rose Tebow to victory over the Steelers.  It was a miracle in the World’s eyes.  It was in fact nearly impossible!

The real fact remains that Tebow simply Trusts God at His word!  Therefore in winning or losing Tebow will react the same.  The media and the world is confused by this reaction and has no real way to describe His character.  If “Truth be known”, His coaches don’t even know how to set up a game plan for Him.  That is because he is doing the will of the Father.

The World and the Media are going to attempt to prove that Tebow failed and even start to get him to change who he is.  The enemy believed Jesus was defeated at the cross as well.  God revealed to the world HIS greatest victory upon Jesus death by the resurrection.  I believe that Tebow is in position to reveal Jesus more when they lose then when they win.  Watch and See! 

I believe Christians have the choice to parallel the same trials and victories that are in the Bible.  It is proven by believers everyday.  The world needs to get the revelation of  “COMPLETE VICTORY IN JESUS!  Winning or Losing in the World’s perspective has NO relevancy compared to the TRUTH of God’s Word!

So you ask me if Tebow and the Broncos can beat the Patriots?  My answer is yes, but knowing the word of God, “HE” might have another plan in mind.  I simply believe that JESUS will be REVEALED more when Tebow loses than when he wins on the field!  The World needs a change and Jesus is the answer.  If everyone could get the same revelation as Tebow the world would be an incredible place to live.  That’s how God intended it. 

So take a good long look at it world and media.  Your not really seeing Tim Tebow in his character, and this story has basically nothing to do with him.  Its spiritual!  I am certain that Tebow would agree if he read it!  You don’t even recognize what to call it.  They didn’t know what to call Jesus the Son of God when he came either.  In fact the world crucified HIM for doing good.  1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. The wolves of the world today are set up and ready to strike out against Tebow, lurking to destroy him or get him to make a mistake. 

Another fact remains about this football season.  Even if the Patriots win the Super Bowl and the Broncos and Tebow perish as a team this week. One “GREAT” thing will remain from this season.  God did something special with Tebow and the Broncos. JESUS has been revealed.  In fact the super bowl winner will finish a distant second this year to what God has done! The champion will lay its crown at the feet of JESUS!
