  1. David the LORD is giving you LIGHT and you know how to share it. The videos I watch,mainly those focusing on relationship with CHRIST, how to take HIM as my bread, the differences between law and grace, etc are strengthening my relationship with JESUS and with others because what’s coming from my mouth to others is authentic, organic and full of life, where before it was religious, rigid,strict,my daughter Emily is growing in CHRIST, u should know that I am just giving her the BREAD you’ve given to me. I will jump on this. You know by the testimonials of many people that GOD has a vast supply and his children will not run short. I’ve heard you say that GOD is giving you so much to say that it’s difficult to know where to start Sometimes. I hope I’m saying that right. I see and I know JESUS LOVE for me bc GOD has given you his LIGHT. It’s so refreshing, rewarding, I use to go through rituals, begging, just crying out and telling the LORD I was desperate for him, that I needed forgiveness, I would beg him to fill me with his holy SPIRIT an beg him not to take his spirit from me. I know u understand bc you’ve experienced much trauma and unnecessary struggles with faith. David I’m not on the verge of despair anymore, I know JESUS has me,I’m excited about tomorrow and not dreading it. I’m praying the doors continue too fly open, I pray this will help you. God is good.

  2. Are you saying we would be charged by each particular search generated, or just on a monthly basis, an .unlimited number of searches?

    1. no it would be a flat membership fee, but I may have to limit the number of searches that can be performed. it could be that the sareches are not generating tokens though and in which case it is hopefully a moot point. this is all new to me how to implement.

  3. After seeing it and hearing how this works, I am really looking forward to subscribing to this type of learning, especially if it will be side by side with your teaching videos. This is really mind blowing that it is so fast and that you can set the parameters of the conversation by what you ask the chat to utilize!

  4. David I would be happy to subscribe and pay a monthly subscription to support the work you do – it’s amazing

  5. Count us in!!! I’ll ask family today. I’m in FULL SUPPORT OF YOUR MINISTRY (Christs ministry ) and praying that you can take care of your family and do this full time -God called you, equipped you, gifted you, gave you utterance and answered all of your prayers agtg! You are an incredible blessing in Christ His ministry in you has changed my life and world forever and blessed my family so much. I’m honored and blessed and grateful to call you my brother in Christ and my friend and elder brother who teaches me how to study Gods word Christ Himself and I can’t wait to grow more in the KNOWLEDGE of Christ in us the hope of glory bc that is our present tense salvation and it’s ALL Christ & He does everything agtg. The greatest free gift we’ve ever received is the gospel and is Christ Himself and we stand boldly in his finished work and we are even more blessed to also freely come and drink and eat of Christ the tree of LIFE and we cast out the son of the bond woman who puts people in bondage to religion and dead works – Cain toiling and working and trying so hard to get right with God and His offer was rejected because God only accepts Christ and His blood and Able offered the blood and we know his offer was accepted by God. We are so blessed in Christ and it breaks my heart how FEW people see Christ in His word, they see themselves and a list to do, the broad road and a CHRISTLESS discipleship and are blinded the most.. the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing but to us it’s the POWER OF GOD! He did not come for the righteous (who are not righteous only Christ is righteous) but he came for sinners and He tan to us first with joy and mercy and love and compassion and put His robe on us His imputed righteousness and the more we grow and understand His vast infinite love for us that He perfects us in, the more we rest and our conscience is perfected and we naturally are always rejoicing in anything when before I thought I had to try really hard to rejoice but it wasn’t natural and it was foreign to me. God blessed me so much taking me out of the false institutional church that was abusive and CHRISTLESS and it was a tough time but I’m ecstatic now and I feel a super tiny taste of what Paul went through as Saul a Pharisee and Christ completely opened his eyes and transformed him and he knew it was ALL DUNG. If I gave EVERYTHING away to the poor and if I had a perfect church attendance and if I looked perfect on the outside, I’d be the most miserable and blind bc it’s all crap and it’s not Christ but a false Christ and self centered and self righteous. I’m so blessed to be suffering outside the camp with Christ and His real assembly. I’ve never been so blessed, I’ve never had this much joy and peace and rest knowing that Christ not only did it all but also does it all for my life when I originally understood the former I very wrongly believed in ignorance and from what galatianized pastors and churches taught, I thought the rest was up to me and I was EXHAUSTED (you know all this I’m just sharing a tiny piece of my testimony it naturally comes out sometimes agtg) and I almost died and I was already bedridden but I had so many burdens put on me intentionally and not intentionally bc they didn’t know Christ at all, we’re probably saved I hope but extremely veiled and blind-preaching the letter that kills no life no Christ -and doing major damage. There should be few teachers because few people have been equipped by Christ Himself and few have seen Christ and know the milk and the meat. I intended to just say I’m in but this is huge and I’m so excited for all He’s going to do through his body; you deserve to be in full time with Christ and His body you know the milk and the meat, you care very much about babes and confused people, you love seeing others built up in Christ and not yourself and you love teaching us everything He’s shown you and it’s far richer and deeper than Christless Christianity. I could go on and on but you deserve to do this full time, time is short and Christians need the gospel and they need Christ and to see Christ and all of their burdens lifted and in rest and rejoicing and dead to everything but Christ Galatians 2:20, know the vast difference between grace vs law and why we can’t mix even a tiny bit of leaven it’s either ALL grace/ Christ or all law/ Moses Death condemnation and nothing. The body and bride needs to know her Bridegroom intimately before she is with Him forever, He wants her confidently and joyfully knowing Him and not in fear for she got to know Baal and not Christ. I’ll stop. Of course you have my full support and I’m so excited! Much love in Christ! -Sarah
