Jesus, Name Above All Names

This Is My Story And I Am Not Changing It

If preachers switch out on the name of Jesus, how can they go back and make right all the false baptisms they did?

Some are saying Jesus is a false English name. And that the real Hebrew name of Jesus is Joshua. Some even say it is Lord Joshua Christ. Wow, I question this.

Will they go rebaptize all their members in Lord Joshua Christ?
Will they now teach the Hebrew name of the Father is Joshua? Because Jesus came in his Father’s name?

What about those who claim the true name of Jesus is Yahshua. Same thing: will they say now Lord Yahshua Christ? Will they now say the Hebrew name of the Father is Yahshua? Because Yahshua would have come in his Father’s name.

There is mass confusion now spreading throughout the world. I am shocked that David Bernard would say the true name of Jesus is Joshua. I am shocked that some are saying the true name of Jesus is Jehovah or Yahweh.

Ok, let’s deal with this.

Is the real name of Jesus now Lord Yahweh Christ?
Is the real name of Jesus now Lord Jehovah Christ?

We must be on guard. We cannot allow the blasphemers to just walk into our homes and churches and spread this lying nonsense. It undermines our faith, our doctrine, our practice, our conduct, and our order.

I know this subject to many is of no importance. All I can say is, if you deny and recant the name of Jesus you are going to hell. And if you lie and deceive innocent souls to trust in some name that is not Jesus, you are going to hell.

I know this is language with the bark still on it, but someone has to say it and so many are either ashamed to say it, scared to say it, or they just do not have the dedication to the name of Jesus to say it.

If I am provoking you into anger by posting this, I will not apologize. These people spreading lies against the name of Jesus offend me. They offend my water baptism. They offend the Passover Cup that I drink each year. And they offend my preaching of the Gospel.

You see, I preach one name on the Cross. And it is Jesus. Yes, Jesus in Paleo Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. Yes the letters are different. But regardless of the use of letters they are pronounce the name as Jesus.
Are you a real Jesus name believer?

Have the liars got you to switch out to Joshua or some other name?
I am praying for more and more men and women to take a stand for the name of Jesus and not back down.

This is my story and I am not changing it.

Men Of The Vineyard Of God

I was thinking on the slick strategy of Jezebel in the matter of Ahab her husband wanting the vineyard of Naboth. Naboth was a simple man. He was just a keeper of his vineyard. His work consisted of pruning his vines each winter before the spring rains. Taking small cuttings and planting them so new vines can grow to replace old or dead ones. Then tending to the vines as they bud and grow during spring. Looking after insects and birds to keep them away from the vine as it blooms and as it brings forth a new cluster of grapes. Then of course waiting for harvest time in the fall of the year. It is not an exciting life tending after vines but it is rewarding and also a very calm way to spend your days, especially if you have a large vineyard and your grapes are a special type. In Israel there were several types of grapes and different colors. The grapes of Eshcol were the very best. They were large almost as big as small apples (Numbers 13:23).

Naboth was a man of personal integrity. The vineyard had come to him from his father. He had it all of his life and cared for it. He also had removed old or dead vines and planted new cuttings. So after the death of Naboth’s father the vineyard became his inheritance. It was not just a parcel of land or just a bunch of grape vines. It was a place of family memories. He grew up running through these vines playing as a child. He assisted in the harvesting and stomping them out to make grape juice and wine. He learned from his father all about grapes and vines. When it came his time to take the pulpit of the vineyard at the wine press, he was prepared, trained, and ready. And he kept the vineyard as a good keeper would.

The problem that developed, was that Ahab built his house next to the parcel of ground of Naboth. And on a particular day as he look out from his house and saw this beautiful kept vineyard he lusted to have it. He coveted it. He saw its beauty and he saw the manner of it as a vineyard well kept. The visible appearance was the result of the hard work of Naboth, a humble Jewish man.

He decided he wanted that vineyard for which he had no inheritance, no memories, no family connection. He just wanted it because it was something he did not have. He wanted what another man had produced. He wanted something another man had spent days, months, years, cultivating and caring for with tender hands and a loving heart. What did he care about all of that legacy. What he wanted he would get. After all he was the important one and he had power.

So Ahab went to Naboth and asked him to sell him the vineyard. And Naboth refused. This was an inheritance. And he was not going to sell his hard work for money. He was not going to give up the accomplishments of his father and his grandfathers before him. This was an inheritance and he would protect it, keep it, and not sell it. So he told Ahab NO, he would not give it to him (1Kings 21:6).

Ahab was sad. His heart was broken. He did not get his way. How could Naboth deny him the vineyard. Did he not know how important he was, he was the king? As he sulked and had a sad face, Jezebel saw it and asked him why he was so broken hearted. So he told her the story of the vineyard and how Naboth would not sell it to him. Jezebel listened and instantly came up with a plan to get that vineyard.

She took a simple nobody of a man, a man no one payed much attention to, and she began to praise him. A man the queen praised was soon a man everyone knew about. He was no longer a quiet hidden man. He was now a public celebrity. He had been made famous by Jezebel and her secret plot. You see, she planned to have him killed. And she needed a way to get all the people to approve his death. She wanted the people to consent to his death when it happened. In this way, they would never suspect that his death was just so Ahab could have his ministry. I mean his ministry of caring for his vineyard. Ahab wanted that vineyard, the vines, the fruit, and this ministry. And so Jezebel would get it for him after Naboth was dead. All she had to do was get Naboth killed and shift the attention away from Ahab to Naboth.

So on a certain day after Naboth had become famous by the wiles of Jezebel and she had made him famous with a feast (1Kings 21:12); then came in two sons of Belial. Now Belial are people of lies and deception, perverters, distorters, and false accusers. But they are exceptionally good at it. Here they came. Proud, arrogant, and slicked tongue. The sons of Belial spoke: “we heard him blaspheme God and the king” (1Kings 21:13). Of course Jezebel had staged and orchestrated this whole scheme. She knew the people would now consent to the death of Naboth. Their zeal would be used to sanction his bloody death. And so it was, the vineyard ministry of Naboth was taken from him and fell into the hands of a devil.

They took Naboth out and the people stoned him to death. And off in the distance stood Ahab and Jezebel grinning as they watched the people kill him.

Now we know this spirit. I am sure they told everyone how they loved Naboth. How he was a good man. How he was a good father. But he had blasphemed against God and that was enough for him to lay over there all bloody on the ground in his vineyard. And he deserved his vineyard ministry to be lost. And someone better than Naboth should have that vineyard. Someone who wanted it and never worked for it. And that someone was none other than Ahab. So he took the vineyard ministry that day not knowing that God was a witness of the scheme. Not knowing that God would avenge this murder and stealing of the vineyard ministry. And some day Ahab and Jezebel would pay for this with their own lives.

The strategy of Jezebel continues today. Speak good of a man while you plan his death so you can have his vineyard ministry. He will not give it to you. He will not allow you to take part. He will not allow you to participate in the inheritance. He will not sell what God had given him. So, praise him with the mouth while behind the scenes look for sons of Belial to raise accusations of blasphemy. Yes, the scheme worked with Jezebel. But what a price she paid. Naboth lay dead. And the vineyard ministry deteriorated into a parcel of dead vines and weeds. You see, after the death of Naboth there is no record Ahab took care of it. And when Ahab was dead, the vineyard was no more. An inheritance was lost. A vineyard ministry was destroyed because of greed, lust, covetousness, and at last hate.

I look at this story and then my mind goes to the parable of Jesus in Luke 20:10-15.

Now I know some of you will not get it. Some of you are just modern Ahabs and Jezebels. You will justify your sins and claim you love the Lord. You will not see that when an inheritance is destroyed someone must pay.
People who are saved and a part of the vineyard of Jesus Christ are precious special people. They do not deserve to be looked upon as objects of covetousness by unproductive men who lust and are full of greed for another man’s work. If you like what another man has produced, ask him how he did it and go do what he did. Spend the days, the months, the years: and learn how to care for your own inheritance.

This is just for those who have a spiritual mind and who love simple men who have spent their lives cultivating the vineyard of God as they stand in the pulpit.

If all of this went over your head, just remember one thing: do not follow the accusations of the sons of Belial when they accuse “blasphemy.”

Do not pick up a stone and cast it. Keep your hands from blood. Or pay the price of Ahab and Jezebel.

Reckart Family

Some of the Reckart family in the Jesus House temple in 2009.

Today the Jesus House temple will hold its last service. We will be moving to another location.

We began dedicating this temple to the name of Jesus, name above all names. My family was there to assist in the dedication. Today, after 7+ years the Reckart family remains dedicated to the name of Jesus Christ, name above all names. I have behind me my family. No one knows my life better than they.

When you build your family on the Truth and get them founded on the solid Rock of Jesus name, you will not regret it.

Today, another chapter opens up for Jesus House. We are proud to be a part of the great family of Jesus.

We did not surrender or give up in the past 7+ years.

The Reckart family enjoys a special blessing from God for the inheritance they have received.

First and foremost in the heart of Pastor Reckart is to save his household. After this, the people of the nations of the world.

The Reckart family is a beautiful one with both biological and adopted children.

Our love reaches out for those unloved and unwanted and we bring them into our arms to show them the love they deserve.

Now the nations.

Every place Pastor Reckart goes no one can escape the realization that he is there because of love.

This is the pattern of Jesus.

He came to earth because he loved.

Isn’t that the way its supposed to be.

Jesus bless your temple this morning.

Beware The Present Luciferians

I considered the sins of lucifer. I did this because I believe lucifer makes devils out of otherwise good people to their ignorance. So here goes:

The first sin in the mind and heart of lucifer was pride. He though of himself more important than he was.
The second sin in the mind and heart of lucifer was disrespect for God.
The third sin in the mind and heart of lucifer was rebellion.
The fourth sin in the mind and heart of lucifer was murder (he wanted God dead).
The fifth sin in the mind and heart of lucifer was to deceive angels he was the good guy and God was the evil one.
This led lucifer to accuse God of inconsistency, of being wrong, of being a tyrant, and of imposing laws on his angels that were unfair, harsh, and had penalties which he did not like.
Lucifer is the first being in creation to establish the democratic system of voting and choosing, opposing the theocratic sovereign sole Kingship rule of God.

What did lucifer use to deceive other angels to follow him?
That he would make them free. That if they joined him, they would escape the rule of God and no longer need to respect him or give him honor.

When a person rises against a righteous man or woman they will follow one or more of these practices. As with lucifer, they will claim they are doing all this to question the person’s faithfulness: just as lucifer challenged and attacked the faithfulness of God.

In these days, there are many traitors. A traitor is exactly what lucifer became. He turned on God with viciousness. He became an accuser of God. He is still an accuser of God. He has not stopped.

One thing lucifer does upon the earth is he changes the Word of God into a lie. He opposes the Truth and creates falsehoods. He attempts to replace God by substitution of himself as the wise one, the intelligent one, the one with the answers.

This is the exact procedure with which he approached Eve.

Today, we will see a rise of the sins of lucifer.

Many will become heady, highminded, disrespectful to God’s dignities, and fall into the reproach of the devil.

I would urge everyone to check their spirit. And if you see lucifer trying to make a devil out of you, resist him and he will flee from you.

Do not become a devil through pride, disrespect, and rebellion. The fool you may think to attack may be a righteous person and you will become the fool instead just like lucifer.

Learn the character of Jesus and thereby escape becoming a lucifer. Give honor to whom honor is due. For there will be many luciferians in the last days and they will not be among the Rothchilds or the Builderburgers or the Bohemian Club. They will be on facebook and other places to lead astray those who do not want to be under the holy and righteous rule and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you understand this not, I would advise you to seek God.

Marriages Are Missionary Work Also

I do not know how many marriages I have assisted with doing missionary work. My wife and I have given money for marriage licenses, for bridal needs, for wedding suppers, for honey moons, and even to help set up house keeping. I am not sure how much tithing money went into these marriages of faith and love, but it is more than most have ever given.

I am proud of what I do with these marriages. And when children are born, I am now a spiritual grandpa. This is why many call me dad or daddy. Many call me lolo. And as they grow, worship Jesus, and learn how to sing, play the drums, or guitars: I am so proud of what I have done as a missionary.

You see, being a missionary is much more than preaching, baptizing, teaching, leaving behind the printed Word: it is a love of and for people that gets you right into the middle of their lives.

I give tithe money also for education, books, school clothing, shoes, and other needs. I am so happy to see these students graduate. I am happy when they get a job. I am happy when I see them as part of the work of God. And I want them to know I love them.

I could go on and on about missionary work of building churches, which I have built many. Jesus is the one to receive all the praise and the glory. He is the one who prepared me, ordained me, sent me, and continues to bless me in all that I do.

To Jesus Christ my Lord, I am deeply thankful. I will do what he leads me to do. I am a servant who likes servant work.

Standing, Still Standing……

I know there are many who believe I am finished. Some think I have nothing else to offer the world about the name of Jesus. And there are some who think I should just die and before I depart to my reward, that I should pass to them all of my knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.

But to many they will be disappointed. I am not finished. Great things are about to begin. And I will continue to offer to the world more knowledge about the name of Jesus than any other man currently living.

To obtain my inheritance in the Truth, you will have be with me. A part of what I am doing. Or you will get no inheritance at all.

I believe in leaving an inheritance to the spiritual children Jesus has given me.

In June, Lord Jesus Christ willing, I will begin to build two more churches in the Philippines. I will deposit there part of my inheritance. I will be so happy that the church members in these two areas will at last have a place to call upon the name above all names. When I visit these two churches, I will be so blessed to just observe the worship and the praise to the most high God. Yes, my delight is in seeing people blessed to be worshipers of the name above all names.

I am preparing for my next mission near Australia. As Jesus opens the doors I will walk through them.

Jesus House Global continues to be blessed.

Thank You Jesus,

Your son, whom you created….
