Inspired by the Holy Spirit

"And Joses, who was also named Barnabas by the apostles (which is translated Son of Encouragement), a Levite of the country of Cyprus.."
~ Acts 4:36 ~

I am in awe of Poppa C.O.'s life. He is an encourager, a man of compassion, and a man who loves Truth.

I am reminded of Barnabas, which is translated Son of Encouragement. I love the impartation of the gift of God that was on Barnabas that is on Poppa C.O. Farmer. The great encourager. It goes beyond just personality of being an encourager, this reveals the heart of God that Poppa C.O. is in pursuit of. Poppa is so after the heart of God and it is revealed in his life.

I truly want to make sure that it is understood that this compassion of God can not be mistaken for 'tolerance'. Compassion of God never compromises with evil. Compassion never compromises period. Tolerance of evil, guised as 'compassion' will overtake us all. I am truly blessed by Poppa C.O.'s life as almost daily he has encouraged us with the Word of God...absolute Truth!

Because he comes in the name of the Lord, I want to make sure he is honored today as God is glorified because of his obedience.

As he is in the hopsital recovering from a serious injury; a broken back, there is a website you can go to:

Please whether you know him or not, please go to the 'Guestbook' and send him an encouraging word. As he has lifted many of our hearts with the truth, may we do the same for him. As we do this, I know it will honor our Almighty God!

I hold onto the promise of Isaiah 58:8 over his life in the Name of Jesus, which says, "Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard."

I pray this also encourages anyone else who is believing in God for healing over your bodies, minds and if you have not been privileged to be in a relationship with Jesus who longs for you, He longs to heal your spirit, that it may become reborn by the Holy Spirit who reveals Jesus.

God is so awesome and may we be in awe of His excellent name! The most famous One!
