Diminishing The Darkness By Lifting Up the Marvelous Light Of Jesus Christ

From The Editor -- by Marcia Greenwood   November 2009
Ah, 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 everywhere.

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

Marcia 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.

So 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 donations
" 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 Contracts"
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 the contract).

But 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 represented.

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 seventy TIMES 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 that know 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
