For those new to our ministry, I want to spend a while familiarizing you with what we're all about, what motivates us, what we're working towards, and what your prayers and financial support are working together with us towards, month after month. Our calling isn't the simplistic designs of novices in the faith, we can assure you! Yet everyday, your prayers and financial participation with us in the exceedingly great and precious promises of God is taking more Christian millennial ground than anyone else out there!
By not entering into the fuller message of God through the prophets of the Bible people have stopped short of understanding the Word of God as the Apostles of the Lamb would have understood it. By failing to understand the context of Scripture that the Apostles of the New Testament were appealing based upon, people have recreated the context of what the Apostles of Jesus Christ were saying after the image and likeness of their circumstances, shallow thinking, and the depressive anxieties of their own minds, unmet needs, and unfulfilled hearts.
We're here to lead the world to Christ, Christians to Biblical perspectives on the Creation and Biblical stewardship of the Creation, and Christian Vegans into full Biblical development in their spirits, souls, bodies, finances, and relational lives. We emphasize salvation from sin for sinners, Christians entering into further dimensions of Biblically Covenantal good works, and fullness of development of one's whole person and experience in life for Christian Vegans.
We believe sinners should be saved, Christians should focus on more than just people entering their life saving Ark, and Christian Vegans should not only have a degree of mastery in and through the Word of righteousness over themselves and their circumstances, but they should reach for the zenith of their own personal development, including in their physical bodies.
Our emphasis is fitness for heaven, fitness for earth, and fitness of a Christian Vegan's physical body as a testimony to fullness of life through Christ and as a summons to fullness of life for all of Creation. Everything we teach is for the world's conversion, Christianity's humility, and Creation's entrance into the liberties of the children of God. Our message is one that is anti-licentiousness, anti-idolatry, anti-promiscuity, anti-poverty, and anti-fear in the full spirit of all Christianity has ever taught. We promote faith, prosperity, the Lordship of Jesus over all, heterosexual marital satisfaction, contentment for all of Creation, and the Isaiah 10:17; Zechariah 3:9 removal of thorns, briers, and iniquity in our day.
We're here to refute the circumstantial evidence that after the appointment of Christ Jesus as the public notary of the Kingdom of God in His High Priestly ministry that misery must continue, expand, and abound for people and animals 'til God sees fit to put the whole Creation out of it's misery. We're here to lead people through multiple levels of Scriptural truth 'til they arrive at multiple levels of hope and strip off multiple levels of the old man while manifesting multiple levels of the new humanity that Christ was sacrificed and resurrected to lead humanity into Shepherding all of Creation back into the tangible manifestations of.
Our tools for this will include monthly writing via emails and snail mail, audio and video presentations, a growing library of pamphlets, content shared via social networking sites, newsletters and magazines, live streaming of annual meetings and special events, and by utilizing the latest tools that'll come along for sharing our message with a global audience.
22 For even as, in Adam, all are dying, thus also, in Christ, shall all be vivified. 1Corinthians 15:22
24 Who Himself carries up our sins in His body on to the pole, that, coming away from sins, we should be living for righteousness; by Whose welt you were healed. 1Peter 2:24
9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, being rich, because of you He became poor, that you, by His poverty, should be rich. 2Corinthians 8:9
18 And I contract for them a covenant in that day with the field life, and with the flyer of the heavens, and the moving animal of the ground. And bow and sword and battle will I break away from the earth, and I will cause them to lie down trustingly. Hosea 2:18
Fountain of Gardens Ministries is dedicated to promoting the Word of Faith message on a Christian Universalist, Absolute Postmillennialist, and a Covenantal Animal Rights foundation until the simultaneous truths of Isaiah 11:2-9 are fulfilled where by the breath of our lips we slay the wicked, yet at the same time they neither hurt nor destroy in God's holy mountain because the earth is filled with the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. We believe the spirit of power, love, and of a sound mind that is given to Christians is to be devoted to good works in the behalf of all of Creation, just as our God is at work in every area of life on every square millimeter of this planet.
While we promote the advancement of the Body of Christ, we view the fulfillment of the Great Commission to entail more accompanying signs than those practiced in the Gospels and Acts because of the teaching of the rest of the Bible. John 14:12 is the testimony of Lord Jesus in this matter. While we promote the prosperity of the Body of Christ, as any Christian Prosperity Ministry would, including in their health and human relationships, we don't believe that absolutely every last penny should only go to the furtherance of evangelism, discipleship, and the personal enjoyment of the lives of Christians, EXCLUSIVELY, but it should likewise be for the furtherance of what many Christians, who are untaught, would naively think are millennial or new earth causes.
The prophets of the Bible are filled with animal rights expectations, from a Covenantal context, and Lord Jesus defended His right to heal on the Sabbath more than once based upon what little Animal Rights principles of the prophets of the Bible that the Rabbis had worked into their lifestyles and bodies of teachings: Matthew 12:9-14; Mark 4:30-32; Luke 12:6-7; Luke 12:24; Luke 13:10-21; Luke 14:1-6. The case for Animal Rights in Christianity is partially obscured by Dispensational Premillennialism with attempts at putting off living more compassionate lives into the deep future, while still living vicious, preying lives upon animals in the here and now with what one is willing to put their money forth in the behalf of, in terms of one's clothing, diet, upholstery, choice of Bible covers, etc. However, our emphasis is simple with encouraging more consistent Biblical lifestyles with God's wisdom, with God's consciousness of every life form, and with God's consciousness of alternative materials that humans have made tremendous progress in developing that make the usage of animal remains, to adorn our lives with, self-serving vanities that betray a lack of conformity to the image of God's Son that's given to us by the prophets of the Bible as they view Him from a perspective that transcends Middle Eastern cultural norms of two thousand years ago that were pragmatic parts of the Word of God, [because of what was available back then,] rather than proceeding from the divine nature that regards [with compassion and attention to detail] the actual lives of each of His beasts.
To instruct and advance these particulars we have an active online, a/v, and printing ministry, a staff of intercessors, and a staff of teachers who are as active in winning souls to Christ as in developing intercessory, Vegan spiritual shepherds of all of Creation on the Biblical foundations of the prophets of the Bible for the advancement of this whole earth as the Kingdom of Christ Jesus 'til all enmity is abolished and curses and fears are no longer known across the entirety of Abraham's earth. We are here to build common ground between Animal Rights activists and Christians over the Hosea 2:18; Jeremiah 31:27-28 Covenant, to win Vegetarians, Vegans, Raw food Vegans, and Animal Rights activists to salvation through Christ Jesus and to discipleship to His Gospel, and to mobilize Christians to throw the full weight of their support in the behalf of the Hosea 2:18; Romans 8:21 Covenant recognizing, embracing, celebrating, promoting, and living consistently with both sides of Isaiah 63:14 in their Hebrews 12:18-24 PRESENT DAY New Jerusalem existence and expressions. We want to see the needs of both people and animals met EQUALLY without conflict with each other, as they've been expressed in the past, by both Christians and Animal Rights activists.
Fountain of Gardens Ministries emphasizes the call to freedom from fear and the call to freedom from idolatry. Fear has chastening, according to 1John 4:18 & Jesus from Nazareth, as God anointed Him with holy spirit and power passed through as a benefactor and healer of all those who were tyrannized over by the Adversary for God was with Him. I'm not speaking KJV spiel, but in better translations of the Bible, chastening isn't a good thing at all because it's root is fear and we're told all over the Bible to fear not. Fear plays into every marriage problem, every wrong interaction with animals, every wrong interaction with God, into every idolatrous situation, and into why people don't give as much as they should or receive as much as they should through
the supplies in the Kingdom of God that are their's through Christ Jesus. You can't come against people's bondage to sickness, weakness, poverty, lack of knowledge of God's Word, lack of conformity to the image of Christ Jesus, and lack of expression of all the Word of Christ dwelling in them richly in all wisdom and lack of expression of the intimacy of His Spirit dwelling in them richly in all sanctification through their lifestyles without overthrowing the fear the Adversary has instilled into them which gives him the might of death that makes them liable to slavery.
Building on it's Isaiah 11:2-9/Zechariah 8:2-6 anointings, this ministry has taken on the task of digging deeper to the roots of every fear that's kept people in bondage from loving their children, neighbors, spouses, enemies, animals, the Body of Christ in the earth, and loving [and living FULLY within] the New Jerusalem existence that belongs to every Christian now in this lifetime, according to Hebrews 12:22. Christian Ministry to the world is a holy crusade against fear everywhere it's ancient and modern tentacles are embedded, fully shattering it from the life of everyone in the world through the love of Christ Jesus. In saying this, again, we're not addressing matters of reverential awe, obedience, and submission to the Lord that's the beginning of wisdom. We're saying this with regards to what Christ Jesus, Himself, came to destroy, according to Hebrews 2:14-15 and Acts 10:38, in the faulty wording of the mainstream translations. Boldness about the future that Christ Jesus has for every man, woman, child, and creature comes about by knowing and believing the love God has for us. Without knowing and believing the love, there can't be freedom from fear, and without freedom from fear the world being recreated for us through the High Priestly ministry of Jesus and the application of His Blood [through the preaching of the Gospel and letting it dwell in our hearts and lifestyles in all wisdom] can never fully become our individual experience and an experience that we pass down to all succeeding generations!
In combating fear, teaching The Universal Restoration of "each and every" person through Jesus Christ and His Body on the basis of the Holy Bible SOLELY is nonnegotiable. Absolutely no one will be eternally dead, eternally destroyed, eternally punished, or eternally separated from God because of the faithfulness of Christ Jesus, the predetermined counsel of God in the Holy Bible, the Biblical Great Commission being 100% victorious in human history, and because of the ANSWERED prayers and patience of the saints on Scriptural grounds. Yet this message isn't complete in the slightest without teaching the Hosea 2:18 Covenant, as both the Biblical basis for Animal Rights and the Biblical clarion call to pray for, protect, and restore the earth as well as the environment (For extreme brevity on this point, though elaborated on extensively on this site: Compare Isaiah 49:8-9 with Jeremiah 31:27-28 with Ezekiel 38:19-20 with Zechariah 2:4-5, Isaiah 54:9-10, Romans 8:19-22, and Hebrews 12:22, noting Jeremiah 31:27-28 as the Old Testament version of Romans 11 that includes the Creation, and Isaiah 54:9-10 as His amending His Genesis 9 Covenants in complete agreement with Jeremiah 31:27-28) Animals enjoy the benefits of an improved environment and society, provision, freedom from fear, threats to their security, murder, and gratuitous exploitation, and mankind being easier to live with overall through more enlightened Christians that acknowledge that animals live for Christ's glory rather than for the covetousness, appetites, and various associated lusts of Christians.
We emphasize God's firm commitment in the Scriptures to tear down every idol, every false god, every false religion, every false mindset, every false sacrificial system, and every false world-view (This area is more of a firm bedrock foundation of everything we teach around here, besides the love of God that's expressed through what we promote. We are clear to EMPHASIZE that Lord Jesus is THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Light and that absolutely no one comes to the Father except through Him. He is a Caregiver, [Presented to us with the Biblical imagery of a Shepherd,] rather than a destroyer of His Children and His own Creation. The love of God and the hatred of every false way are both equally presented to us in the Bible, [side-by-side,] as central to God, His Kingdom, and what constitutes right-standing with Him through Christ Jesus. Anxiety, covetousness, death, end of the world scenarios, fear, filth, grief, idolatry, loneliness, oppression, poverty, sickness, violence, and war CANNOT BE SAVED, but all will be torn down through Jesus Christ and His Gospel going into all of the earth.).
Inseparable to teaching this, [since New Testament ministry isn't Scripturally formulated around a lot of don'ts,] we teach the Word of Faith Scriptural "Melchizedek" Message of the Abrahamic Covenant. 90% of the time in the Scriptures, the "Second Coming" is one of two things: our New Testament Melchizedek coming to receive our tithes to worship God with them in our behalf and to release greater grace upon and through our lives; secondly, the daily unveiling of fully maturing Sons and Daughters of God through Christ and His Gospel in our day. The Bible says when He's revealed through the preaching of the Gospel, His disciples likewise appear with Him in glory. Scripture says we're heirs of this deliverance, Edenic-living, healing, prosperity, protection from God, restoration, and wholeness that takes us to our zenith of God's intent for our lives through Christ Jesus whether we're Jews, Gentiles, or Animals. You can't end the fear, idolatry, and iniquity of the land in one day without emphasizing the ongoing ministry of Christ Jesus in seeking and saving the lost, whether they're people or animals and without emphasizing Gospel Sonship and future world history being reconstituted into His testimonies that will be to the praise of His glorious grace.
We teach a Post-Apocalyptic Jeremiah 31:27-28 "Word of Faith" message, believing in the final/ultimate/inevitable holiness and obedience of every creature to Christ Jesus. Firmly expecting the 1Corinthians 15:25-26 total abolishment of death as all are being gathered into God's love, per Ephesians 1:8-10, at any moment of the Biblical Great Commission's 100% total victory in human history, we celebrate the Biblical feast for the nations about the reversal of the decree of death known as Purim.
For those wanting a creed of [more] basic Bible beliefs we hold dear:
1.We believe in the Matthew 1:23 virgin birth;
2.We believe in the Hebrews 4:15 sinlessness of Lord Jesus;
3.We believe in the Acts 10:38 anointing of Jesus;
4.We believe in the Luke 24:26 suffering of Christ and that He entered into His glory;
5.We believe in the Romans 1:4 physical, bodily resurrection of Christ Jesus;
6.We believe in the John 3:36 wrath that abides on unbelievers;
7.We believe in redemption through the Blood of Jesus, according to Ephesians 1:7;
8.We believe in the 1Thessalonians 4:1-8 commandment to abstain from sexual immorality;
9.We believe in the Luke 24:47 Great Commission;
10.We believe in the Colossians 3:16-17 & 1John 2:5-6 commandment to operate as Christ Jesus on a solid New Testament foundation!
As more of a preference, rather than anything creedal, we endorse usage of a good center column reference New King James Bible, advising monthly partners of this ministry to also consult the Concordant Literal Translation, Young's Literal Translation, and Rotherham's Emphasized Bible for help with the full meaning of the text in their meditation and study time!
Our emphasis is upon rightstanding with God through Christ's redemptive sacrifice and mediating reign that reclaims the future, the Creation as our Eden, and ULTIMATELY/EVENTUALLY every man, woman, and child who has ever existed or will ever exist as our Biblical Blood-brothers and Blood-sisters through the Blood of God's New Testament. We have peace with God through Christ Jesus, salvation from everything we've ever needed saving from, a Creation around us [and a future before us] that is destined to only get better and better through our growing union [TOGETHER] with God in applying every redemptive principle of the Scriptures.
We believe in the absolute authority of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible as the final authority in all matters of faith, practice, science, history, religion, life on earth, entrance into the Kingdom of God, acceptance by God through Christ Jesus, how a man may please and serve God, and how to build godly homes that'll withstand any storm of life. We believe in the fallibility of every human authority, the infallibility of Scripture, and that 3 things are declared in Scripture to be given to man to make a man perfect, thoroughly equipped for every good work: the grace of God in 2Corinthians 9, the Scriptures in 2Timothy 3, and the Blood of Jesus in Hebrews 13.
