Diminishing The Darkness By Lifting Up the Marvelous
Light Of Jesus Christ
-- by Marcia Greenwood
h, my favorite time of the entire
year – autumn, which some call fall.
There just seems to be an
excitement in the air and a spring in my step as I walk and observe the color
of the leaves – changing from various greens to gold’s and russets. During this time of year I just feel like
taking my time, feeling the cool breezes on my face and not having to hurry
In November we, in the United
States, celebrate an official day of Thanksgiving. As Christians, we should remember to make special time to gather
around our Father in heaven and give Him thanks for all He has done for us.
God should be, as always, first
on our list on this Thanksgiving Day.
He IS the giver of all good gifts.
Make it a point not to allow the business of the day get in the way of
spending time with Him.
We need to celebrate the Father,
Son and Holy Spirit. Yes, for all they
have done for us. The Father loves us
with an unconditional love. Jesus died
for us WHILE we were yet sinners.
The Holy Spirit draws us into all
truth. He is our comforter, guide and
teacher. This is only the beginning of
the wonderful things we can say about our great God!
Read the gospel of John Chapters
14-17 and taste, really taste of God’s love and goodness. How awesome it is that God loves you and me
AS MUCH AS He loves Jesus!
As you go about your daily activities, sing love songs
to Him. As you read your Bible, repeat
to Him what He has written to you, in thanksgiving and praise. There is truly much to be thankful for this
Thanksgiving season. TGM
and I want, again this month, to take a moment to tell you how much we appreciate our TGM
Partners. We really do pray for our partners every single
morning, covering them, and everything they own and are responsible
for, with the blood of Jesus. You may ask, "What good is that to
me?" I'm glad you ask. Even with all of this economic
turmoil around the world, NOT ONE of our TGM Partners have lost their
homes and NOT ONE is out of work. NOT ONE! We believe that
PARTNERSHIP is a two-way street. Our partners financially support
that God-given vision and mandate that the Lord gave me to accomplish
before His return. And in return, we act as a covering for our
partners. I believe that we have the greatest Partners on the planet.
The ONLY problem is, that there are not, as yet, enough Monthly TGM
Financial Partners to fully fund all that He has ask us to do.
So I am personally ASKING you and INVITING you to become a Monthly
TGM Financial Partner because some people want to be asked or
invited. I AM NOT "begging" you for anything. I am OFFERING
YOU a partnership in ministry.
No amount is "too small". We've had people tell us, "I wanted to
sow into your ministry, but all I could give was $5 a month and was
embarrassed to give that little." Listen, we figured up, that if
everyone that came to our website just gave $1.00 a year it would
actually support the current configuration of our ministry. But
then, our current configuration is not getting the whole job done, but
you get the picture.
if you would like partner with Tim Greenwood Ministries, and you are
ready to sow your monthly amount, I encourage you to use the PayPal form below to "Set-up monthly
or "Make a one time donation". I have found it to be fast, free
and secure. However, if you prefer, you can call us with your
credit card information at 626-574-5016, mail us a check, using the
address below, or use the TGM Contribution Form, which is also safe and secure.
Thank you and God bless you!

How to Deal With A
Breach of Trust
Another excerpt from the book, "Good Faith & Biblical
by Tim Greenwood
Matthew 18:15-22 (TGV) (This is
Jesus speaking.) Now if your Christian brother shall breach a good faith
contract, agreement, promise or trust between you or between he and God, then:
STEP 1. Go privately and confront him concerning his breach, just
you and him alone: and if you and he can come to an understanding, you have
regained the friendly contractual relationship (and no one else need know
about it). But if he refuses to
listen to you, then (and only then):
STEP 2. Go to him again, this time taking with you one or two
others to reason with him (perhaps a mutual friend to act as an unofficial
arbitrator) and legally witness whatever is said or done. And if he shall also refuse to listen to
them, then (and only then):
STEP 3. Officially bring the issue before the assembly (through
the proper governing body, be it the Pastor, Board, etc., i.e. not through the
“gossip mill”): And if he refuses to listen to the assembly, then (and only then):
STEP 4. Officially dissolve the relationship and disassociate
yourself with him, and let him be. Just
consider him now as being a person of questionable reputation.
Understand this, as long as you
follow the above procedure, whatever earthly contractual relationships you are
able to restore like this will be legally restored in heaven (giving you
both the gain): and whatever contractual relationships you must dissolve
shall be legally dissolved in heaven (freeing you from your obligations of
I want to reiterate, that every time any two or more of you Christians
shall come into contractual agreement on earth concerning any offer,
promise or statement of fact, that contract is legally required by My Father in
Heaven to be fulfilled because anywhere two or three "CHRIST-ians"
are gathered together, MY name and reputation is (supposedly) being
After hearing this, Peter came to him, and said, Lord, how many
times must I attempt to set aside a brother’s breach of my trust?
Seven times? Jesus said to him, “Not just seven times Peter, but
seven.” (End of passage.)
God is in the business of reconciliation
and restoration of good faith relationships, particularly between Christian
brothers. Because “Christ” is who
His son Jesus is, and whatever we say or do as “Christ-ians” (or followers of
Jesus Christ), reflects on Jesus and Jesus’ reputation, just as if our words
and actions were being done in His name.
In other words, it makes Jesus look bad. How are all of the unbelievers ever supposed to come to Christ
Jesus, if we keep making Him look bad?
Jesus is saying here, that no matter
what the breach, no matter what the sin, be against God or man, Father God wants
us to utilize the above steps to reconcile and restore every broken
relationship back to wholeness and move forward to it’s complete fulfillment.
If we fail to go through this process to
repair the breach, then it needs to be understood that even though the other
party committed the breach, you are STILL obligated to fulfill your part. The above process is the only method to
legally free you from your obligations of the contract in the eyes of God.
And it doesn’t say to kill him, beat him
up or to take your Christian brother to court if he won’t mend the breach. What it does say is “Let him be” or leave
him alone to live with his bad reputation.
According to Ezekiel 22:30 God seeks those that will stand in
the gap and repair the breach between God and man as well as between men.
These are men and women
that continue to move forward no matter what. These are men and women
how to rescue opportunities out of adversities. These are men and
women that are committed to making each other whole. These are
men and women that are like God. TGM
