you say, does say something about you, be it good or bad. So, I ask you
– what are you saying about yourself? Do people like to be
Do you build people up or tear them down? Do people
try to hide when they see you coming or are they glad to see you?
And, very importantly, can people depend on what you say? Does
your yes, really mean yes or does it sometimes mean maybe or in the end
really mean no – depending on how you feel when the time comes to
fulfill what you said.
God’s Word, the Bible means just what it says. Jesus, when living
on earth, said what He meant and fulfilled what He said, every
time. That is why the Bible says”Let you yes, be yes and your
nay, be nay.” Nay means no in this king James language.
What I want to address in this letter is actually following through on
what you say to others. Our word is a verbal contract, whether
you think so or not. In the “old days” contracts were agreed upon
with a person’s word and a handshake.
When people get to know you, they learn quickly if you are a “person of
your word.” They know if you are truthful or just “full of hot
air”, as the saying goes.
We need to learn to always follow through on what we say – that is why
it is important to think before we speak. The big things count,
as well as the little things, such as: “I will call you next week”, or
“let’s go to lunch soon”.
Yes, things may come up, but we have: phones, texting, email and face
book to contact the person and let them know we haven’t forgotten them
and then follow through to fulfill what you said in the verbal contract.
Yes, you and I are well known for what we say. Our reputation is
on the line! And, very importantly, we, as Christians want to reflect
the light of Jesus in us TGM

and favor come from two major sources, as free will gifts or as the
result of fulfilled contractual relationships. God’s gifts are His to
give to whom He will, just as man can give or bestow a gift to whomever
he wants to.
The blessings are usually the fruit or benefit of a fulfilled
contractual relationship, and the favor is often as the result of one’s
good reputation for successfully fulfilling that contractual
relationship or previous contractual relationships.
This good reputation is what the King James Bible refers to as
righteousness. If a person successfully fulfills a good faith
contractual relationship with God then he is right, in good standing or
righteous in God’s eyes. If a person successfully fulfills a good faith
contractual relationship with another man or woman, then he is right,
in good standing or righteous in that man’s or woman’s eyes.
The opposite of that would be the failure to fulfill or the breaching
of a contractual relationship which would place one in breach, bad
standing or unrighteous in their eyes.
Every contract forms a new, stand-alone relationship. All that God has for us is good.
Therefore, He never creates bad-faith contracts or bad-faith relationships.
He designed all contracts to be good faith contracts and good faith relationships.
So then, where did bad faith come from?
There is a devil loose on this planet, named Satan with a bunch of
escaped lower-level devils, skilled in twisting everything good that
God has created 180 degrees into evil or bad. These are called
reciprocals, reverses or opposites, like the heads and tails of a coin.
A few of these reciprocals are: good and evil; fulfillment and breach;
healing and sickness; light and darkness; prosperity and lack;
wholeness and brokenness; love and hate; faith and fear; and the list
Our relationships with God and with our fellow man are actually legally
binding contracts. And if or when we break or breach that relationship,
we break or breach the contract diminishing our reputation with God and
That break or breach is what the King James Bible refers to as
sin. Therefore Adam’s sin, was in actuality, his breach or
breaches of contract with God which effectively halted the development
of the Kingdom of God here on Earth.
One of Jesus’ primary purposes for coming to Earth as a human being,
was to come as the 2nd Adam, in proxy for Adam, instituting what the
King James Bible calls grace, through the favor of Adam being a child
of God, and that favor, setting aside the breach, allowing Him, through
Jesus, to re-enter that breached contract as if it had never been
Now, man has never, on his own, seemed to be able to successfully walk
in the God kind of love nor to successfully operate in good faith based
upon that kind of love.
And this is one of the main reasons Jesus sent us God’s Holy Spirit:
So, that we, through the in-filling of His Holy Spirit could indeed
operate in good faith based upon that kind of love and thereby operate
in the Kingdom Process. TGM
