THE CUTTING EDGE IS BALANCE

The following describes an important vision Given to Dr. Taveau D’Arcy

In December 1995, while on a trip with her family to Washington, DC. God awakened Pastor Taveau D’Arcy with a graphic picture and these word,

“THE CUTTING EDGE IS BALANCE.”


The clear picture Taveau D’Arcy saw was of her standing, balanced quite precariously, on top of a giant old fashioned razor blade.

Dr. Taveau realized that if she did not remain balanced, she could slip and actually be sliced up through the middle by the giant sharp razor’s edge.

OR if she ever happened to fall over off one side, that there was a huge cliff with giant rocks onto which she could fall……..

AND if she fell off the other side, there was a picture of a huge, raging waters which could sweep her completely away.

Taveau concluded that the picture implied that as long as she took time to keep God in a First Love ongoing Relationship, pray, and allow the Holy Spirit to specifically fine tune her, that submitting, obeying and yielding to Him, and of course by remaining in His Word, that along with God’s granted great grace, that could remain in balance.

And the Dr. Taveau always takes personal responsibility to have God designated wise, leader others, with which to practice up front, both personal and senior ministry accountability.

THE CUTTING EDGE IS BALANCE vision also implied that if she ever became too busy to carefully follow the inward direction of the guiding Leader Lord, that she might fail or go off the deep end on one side of the other, or even (God forbid) perish.

Dr. Taveau also submits this as a wisdom to the leader reader.

How This Leadership Ministry Views the words Apostle, apostle, an office of an apostle

Excerpt from DR. TAVEAU D’ARCY OFFICIAL BLOG www.taveauleader.com Posting Feb 15, 2013

Dr. Taveau D’Arcy Creative Leadership, The IFFM Ministries uses the word apostle to signify ” servant pioneering senior leader,” “God’s divinely sent messenger,” “divinely commissioned Holy Spirit work birther” “Holy Spirit mandated spiritual trail blazer” “Bible believing, organic chief doctrine originator” and ”off scouring of the world.”

** Being viewed as “doing the work of an apostle” and anyone “being apostolic” is not necessarily the same as that person holding the “OFFICE OF AN APOSTLE.” Note the description above for the writer’s view of any God called person being used often or regularly in the above described clearly “apostolic” manner

**And clearly the God mandated servant leader, entrepreneur, the lay leader, the inventor, the senior pioneering office planter, may be used in an “apostolic” fashion ( “birthing, planting, overseeing” Spirit directed manner , as described above) yet still not be molded, fashioned or called to walk in the OFFICE of an APOSTLE, much less as a CHIEF APOSTLE.

**However, the OFFICE of the apostle, a chief doctrine originator, or a God ordained business empire building organic senior mature leader, senior pastor, is one that is never ACHIEVED but created FROM WITHIN only by the Lord

**The OFFICE of being an “apostle” is not achieved by any human performance, based on personal decisions, or personal merit, rather the OFFICE of the senior chief apostle is a call from God which requires much sifting, maturation, repeated breaking and God molding, fashioning and finally creating the office of the apostle after what can only be regarded as GOD’S REQUIREMENT OVER A GOD APPOINTED LENGTH OF TIME AND IN HIS ,OVER ALL DUE PROCESS.

Example: Paul himself stated in Ephesians 3:7, “Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.”

Example: Apostle Paul himself stated in Philippians 3: 12″Not that I have attained or am already perfected, but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ has laid hold of me”

(NOTE: This statement comes following Paul’s lengthy long description of all his natural, educational,worldly big qualifications, for which he now, for the knowledge and High Call of Christ regards as “dust.”

READ the whole passage in context: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+3&version=NKJV

The TAVEAU D’ARCY CREATIVE LEADERSHIP, IFFM Ministry uses the CAPITAL A Apostle when addressing the first 12 Chief Apostles, and Apostle Paul. (Even when Paul NEVER uses a capital letter when writing about ANY the 5 fold offices, OR when referring to himself.

Yet, out of honor and respect for the pioneering apostolic forefathers in the organic Christian faith,the writer does will use capital letters when mainly describing the Chief 12 and Apostle whose name was Paul.

However, when we refer all the apostolic males and females who have followed each of them , most all of the time, due to the fact that IFFM and Taveau D’Arcy Pioneering Ministries attempt to role model servant leadership, the writer will most all of the time use a “small letter,” as Pioneering Paul did, when describing, referring to nearly all modern pioneering senior leaders of ALL 5 fold leader office lamp stands.

DO WE MINISTER BEFORE AN AUDIENCE OF ONE?

MINISTRY BEFORE AN AUDIENCE OF ONE

IFFM APOSTOLIC THEORY: On the Final Day we’ll each stand alone before the Living Lord and be expected to give a direct account before THE AUDIENCE OF ONE about all that we did or did not do, both personally and in ministry: therefore it is urgently important that we live each and every pioneering leader day with HIM and ETERNITY in mind.

THE WRITER CONFINES THIS ARTICLE TO THE APOSTOLIC LEADERSHIP IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

1. THE GOSPELS (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John): Example LUKE 1: Neither was the birth of JOHN THE BAPTIST or JESUS CHRIST traditional, in any human way “TYPICAL” “NORMAL” but rather: GOD SENT.

2. Neither was the SENIOR OFFICE EVANGELISTIC MINISTRY of JOHN THE BAPTIST confined to anywhere inside of the Religious Form and Traditional System of that (pioneering leader, chief apostolic) DAY.**

**Surely the Temple Priest, Zacharias, the Dad of JOHN, was a lot more than a bit chagrined …for rather than growing up to follow in his temple priestly father’s footsteps, JOHN was NOT TYPICAL. Rather, Heavenly Father God intentionally sent the Priest and his dear wife, Elizabeth, a very NON TRADITIONAL ECLECTIC “apostolic minister” who preferred remaining OUT of the confining FOUR WALLS of the TEMPLE and out living in the wilderness, eating locusts and wild honey!)

3. When the Messiah, Savior, Christ was supernaturally conceived, it was surely atypical and probably created deep suspicion among the local priestly gatekeepers about His possibly being (rumored as) “CONCEIVED OUT OF WEDLOCK.”

4. WHEN the angels first announced the GOOD NEWS of JESUS BIRTH…they did not first appear to any one inside of the righteous TEMPLE SYSTEM of that day.

The heralding angels only appeared to what may be duly noted as “the humble shepherds..up on the hillside.”

5. When the mature JESUS CHRIST started His senior apostolic ministry, it was once again, nowhere inside the FOUR WALLS of what was then the LOCAL BIG LEVITICAL RELIGIOUS SYSTEM.
Rather Jesus took His own pioneering work planting, senior ministry (once again) OUTSIDE onto the (ministry free range) HILLSIDE.

6. BOOK OF ACTS 2: Rather than appear inside the FOUR WALLS, to “pour out on all assembled apostolic flesh” ( during one of the prayer meetings at the local religious temple) HOLY SPIRIT picked a ROOM set APPART from the BIG TEMPLE, to supernaturally anoint, equip and empower the 120 who were most likely perceived as temple heretics, spiritual outcasts, and “not UNDER TEMPLE AUTHORITY SUBMISSION.”

7. Any and all of the many healing, miracles, deliverances, resurrections mentioned in the GOSPELS, BOOK OF ACTS…were EACH not confined within THE FOUR WALLS of the religious temple Legalistic Chief overseeing PHARISEE Big System.

8. APOSTLE PAUL, who was ostracized for his first 13-14 years from being allowed to fellowship, to minister along with the first ORGANIC 11 FIRST CHURCH APOSTLES fled to ARABIA (Damascus) where, apart from any overseer “apostolic covering spiritual authority” He had so very many personal Holy Spirit encounters and God sent “abundance of the many revelations” that Paul was able to then pen two thirds of the NEW TESTAMENT. He penned (Galatians 1:1)

**“Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)”

9. TECHNICALLY,(GOSPELS) the spiritual fruit of the NEW TESTAMENT PHARISEE was, still is, the following:

1. Accuser ministry leader nature, throwing religious stones (complete opposite of Messiah Isaiah 11:2-3, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John)

2. Preserving Status Quo (usually attacking anybody whom they perceived might be threatening to their own mammon usually centric, Big Religious Perks, Self Respect System)

3.ACCUSER OVERSEERS: Keeping overseer, always watching, tabs on all (outside the Big System) others

>4.MINISTRY ACHIEVEMENT PRIORITIZED OVER BUILDING, INTERRELATING WITH, PRESERVING,ANTI ACCUSER GUARDING, JESUS WHOLE COMMUNITY:

**BASED ON INTERMINGLING AMONG THE WELL MEANING SPIRITUAL FRUIT Sitting out among the seats, the ministry subgroup is NOT “into” genuine, authentic, respecting relationship.

**MINISTRY DEVALUING, DEHUMANIZING “ ALL REAL LIFE GOD MADE HUMANS” Ministry quick “fixing” people, rather than interrelating(common ex:“mourning with those who mourn”). Big Time achievement Busy RACIAL, GENDER, AGE, OTHER big STEREOTYPES

**APPARENT FEAR OF LEADER INTERACTION USING RELATIONSHIPS: BEING seen as BUSY VS pausing for RELATIONSHIPS spiritual fruit not ministry perceiving, top valuing the ENTIRE COMMUNITY as a fully accepting, spiritual connected HUMAN FAMILY;

**SPIRITUAL RELIGIOUS DOCTRINES OVER ALL TEN RELATIONSHIPS (see TEN RELATIONSHIPS on HOMEPAGE of this site) Example: Doctrines, top elder approving yielding to all House Good Rules, spiritual people pleasing/giving honor, doing good works, building, ministry achieving,spiritual people pleasing (prime example) religious pride in being regarded as “under” their own in House version of “ Legalistic Spiritual Authority”

5.AVOIDANCE OF, and NOT SUBMITTING FULLY TO OBEY GOD’S ENTIRE HOLY BIBLE SCRIPTURE Avoided up front (respectful) Matthew 18:15-17; Yielding only to preferred, hand selected, mostly BLESS ME faith filled Bible promises

6. SOME POP IDOL WORSHIP: Risking reproducing MEN PLEASERS rather than ONLY GOD PLEASERS DOCTRINE: Bowing down to the traditions of man, resisting any thing apart from what they perceive that they already know ,have witnessed and spiritually discern/understand. MINISTRY INCLUDES: OVER HONORING of 5 fold offices, enthroned hierarchy, ministry celebrity.

7. SELF SATISFIEDD “Comparing themselves among themselves, they are not (overseer) wise”

8. IN TV MEDIA WORSHIP CULTURE MAJORLY AFFECTED APOSTOLIC MINISTRY: Minus the PROVERBS 1:7 “Holy adding fear of the Lord “which is the beginning of mature WISDOM.”

9. APPARENTLY ACCUSER, BETWITCHED LEADERSHIP
**2 TIMOTHY 3:1-5 /I TIMOTHY 6:5 “From Such Turn Away” Apostolic Ministries

** BEGUILED APOSTLES: “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?” GALATIANS 3:1 (for choosing to teach God’s people to go BACK UNDER the accusative, legalistic Old Testament Levitical Law)

Psalm 56 3

DISCERNMENT IN PIONEERING MINISTRY

DISCERNMENT IN PIONEERING MINISTRY

(C)2015 Taveau D’Arcy all copyrights reserved

 

ONE of the MAIN PARTS in preparing to work plant any Holy Spirit, God authentic new (pioneering, spiritual trailblazing) chief WORK is to accurately PERCEIVE and DISCERN when you are being led by “The Voice of The Good Shepherd..who gives LIFE to His sheep” and then it is the “voice of the (deceptive) stranger” (John 5)

Dr. Taveau D’Arcy Creative Leadership has spent 40 plus years, learning, by apostolic Bible Study and simply experimenting “(meaning being “led by God’s inward Holy Spirit witness, balanced ongoing what is in the BIBLE) ongoing repeated /continuing STUDY.

AND she concludes that it is definitely not a “achieved exact science” but rather a “ministry deeply subjective life one by one “GROWING and LEARNING and repeatedly FUMBLING Life Long GROWTH Process. And Apostle Paul, who penned 2/3 of the New Testament wrote” I have not attained” AND ALSO “Noble Berean Bible study HIS LEADER DOCTRINES” and frankly urged the leader , lay saints to “follow me ONLY  as I follow Christ”
HENCE, IFFM TEAMMATE UNIVERSITY servant apostolic leader pioneering founder, also urges each and every Christ Follower, Minister, to abide by doing the exact same as we each will need to appear all alone, on the Final Day, before the LORD to give Him a personal account of WHAT we allowed to (spiritually, doctrinally) GOVERN US, both personally and in 5 fold office ministry.

THE FOLLOWING is a REPRINT OF A OVERVIEW  DISCERNING THE MANY VOICES

(C) 2009 Dr. Taveau D’Arcy All copyrights reserved

“There are many voices in the world, and each one has significance.”

 I Corinthians 14: 10

This may be viewed as as kernel Bible overview which may provoke new thinking which  may be used with children, teenagers through adult

Discernment Training 101

But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Hebrews 5: 14

The Bible teachers that “there  are many voices in the world, and each on has significance.”(I Corinthians 14: 10). 

This means that ever single word or suggestion we hear or feel, actually means something.  

Now don’t start feeling all spooked out or weird. That is not from God (scroll down to  see James 3: 17)

Yet, Hebrews 5: 14 says that  it takes practice to learn how to discern what is evil from what is good.

 If the Bible tell us that we need to grow in discernment by practicing using our God given Holy Spirit gift of discernment of spirits (I Corinthians 12: 10)  then this means that God never demands that we are 100 per cent perfect in discernment.

However, the Bible does say that it needs to be used, which means practiced and even trained.  Although one can mature and grow in this Holy Spirit gift, ultimately we are not able to “achieve” being an accurate discerner. God, training, prayer and trial and mistakes DEVELOP the gift of discernment.

 Learning to accurately discern which is the  True Voice coming from the Living Shepherd, is a life long process. And it is like riding a horse: if you fall of, then just repent, but get back up on it again.

There Are Many Voices in the World

Here is an incomplete sampling of  many of the voices we hear in modern life:

1. Our own voice

2. Father God’s Voice: the inward witness of God’s Holy Spirit

3. Our thoughts, ideas

4.Voices of family and friends, peers, fellow workers, authorities

5.Voices on cell phones, computers, CD’s, Ipods, radio, DVDs, movies

6. Nightly News

7. Dreams, visions, intuition

 8. Feelings

9. Words of advice

10. Written words: blogs, books, websites, letters

11. Words from a prophet , senior pastor, Christian leader, TV minister, (or secular messages by secular media persons)

12. The voices of  government, civil authorities

So, HOW can we decide which voice is one that represents something Godly in our lives?

If we are listening to a word of prophecy or advice or even a message from a Christian leader, on TV or in church. HOW do we really tell if that word is TRULY SENT from the Living God?


First, it really pays to know Scriptures which tell us that God wants us to discern when He is guiding us. As we said, this takes many years of practice, but you first begin by meditating on the Scriptures and claiming them in faith for you God given ability to hear accurately from God.

Bible Scriptures to Start to Believe, Claim and Confess:

Ask God to sharpen your ability to  discern right from wrong, and ask Him for the gift of discernment of spirits listed in  I Corinthians 12: 1-10 (discernment is listed in v. 10)

“ But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, [and] easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.’ James 3: 17

“God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.” I Timothy 1:7

“… the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. I Kings 19:12

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: “ John 10:27

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.’ Psalm 37: 23

“Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: Hebrews 3:7-8 *

*(I put this verse since it lets us know that when we choose to ignore the voice of the Holy Spirit, our hearts will grow hard until it makes discerning what HE is trying to tell us impossible to hear.)

 Yielded in Selah respectful usual form.
