A House of True Worship & Prayer – Consecrated & Holy Environment:
This is a wonderful opportunity for you to do as Yeshua did. Come away and be alone with the Holy Father. Your time spent here is very valuable and in order for you to get the most benefit in the shortest amount of time we do have a few house guidelines that are necessary, and we believe when you keep them it will greatly bless you and your Kingdom work for the Lord. By choice we do not have television or movies in My Father’s House, although we do have wi-fi internet. Our requested guideline is that you do not bring DVD’s, other outside worship music, or Ministry teaching books into the home. You can bring a laptop if needed, but we strongly encourage to use it only as a Bible study tool, an exception is made with the laptop or phone if you do need to use it to attend lightly to business or family matters. This is so your time is protected and spent to the optimum in clearly hearing His Voice and revelations for you, no man’s doctrine or opinions, just you and the Holy Father and His Word.
New age practices of any kind, such as yoga, are strictly forbidden. New age teas such as Yogi and coffees such as Starbucks are not allowed. We cheerfully provide organic coffees and teas. No smoking. No alcoholic beverages. No pets.
We believe you will quickly enter into deeper places of His Heart as you respect Him and us as overseers of this protected Holy environment. Thank you for understanding.
Modest Apparel Required
An important requirement is that at all times modest apparel is to be worn while staying here, although we are located right along the beach we are still obeying the Word of God and setting an example of Christ like modest apparel. If shorts, skirts or pants are worn, they need to be below the knee and loose fitting. No speedos, no skin tight exercise clothing such as yoga pants, bike pants, runner and tight spandex clothing. We also request shirts and tops to be modest with sleeves covering the shoulders and loose fitting. No low cut front or back tops, “no tight or cleavage showing tops”, no cropped, tank or bare back styles. No bathing suits.
My Father’s House is a Ministry house set apart unto the LORD for Ministry purposes only. Our modesty guideline is a Biblical command that we obey. This is a consecrated house of prayer and worship with a pure atmosphere.
We believe YAHWEH has instructed us to obey His Word for modesty, not out of legalism but out of keeping a pure and holy environment for His Glory, to revere His Presence and the Holy Angels here, and to also honor and protect one another as Brother’s and Sister’s in Christ, and in honoring the marriages. This makes it easier for those here to guard their hearts and minds and enjoy a free atmosphere of true worship and prayer. Thank you for your Christlike understanding and cooperation with the Holy Spirit and obedience to His Word. This Christlike modesty in a prayer and worship environment is very needed so that we are honoring one another and not being a distraction or drawing unneeded attention to ones self. We believe this brings more Glory to the LORD and shows the Christ like honor and love to the other Brother’s and Sister’s attending. When we keep these guidelines of His Word and house rules we are assuring that we do not give an open door to the enemy or the fleshly (carnal) thinking that could cause wrong thoughts leading to sin. Thank you.
1Tim 2:9-10 9. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with modesty and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10) But which becomes women professing godliness with good works.
