A lesson through experience, God fights our Battles! The Kingdom Overrides (TKO)

A timely message with a powerful reminder

We know that the evil one is nervous, pitiful, a nasty, no good, sore loser. Yes, he already lost! His end is ironclad, there is no escape for him. To add insult to injury, he wants to destroy and corrupt as much of Gods creation as he can. Just like the rotten, evil scoundrel he is.

He is so powerless, in so many regards. Scripture itself tells us that we have the Lord’s power & authority to overcome the enemies deception and grasp. I know I am not the only one who has either faced attacks on every level, from physical, to financial, to familial.

One thing that comes to my mind is a particular day, a while back. I was on my way to take care of some business. I had about a 20 – 30-minute car ride ahead, as the area I’d be traveling through is thick within town traffic. I decided that on my way there, I would begin praising God for everything in my life. Every car, person, road sign, tree, a scene in the sky, cloud, song, every faculty I possessed, everything I could think of and spot, acknowledge and list. It went on and on and on, I laughed a few times, I even had a few overlapping thoughts as I listed thing after thing, thinking wow, God supports and supplies everything, how amazing that we just do not realize everything is a blessing. This exercise was so invigorating! Even though I spoke aloud for almost 35 minutes straight, I felt great, a little thirsty BUT I mean GREAT, GREAT- GREAT; like I had just received an oxygen boosted cocktail.

Later on, on my way to leave the area. Something bad happened. It was a setback but I can see in the spirit that what I did before I got there helped to mitigate the damage. It could have been, should have been, so much worse. You see the enemy wants us so focused on whats wrong, that we ignore our power, forget about our blessings, overlook our opportunities. We have the power to knock him out, to thwart him, to put him back in his powerless place. Do not give him a foothold.

Imagine you have a weapon, and you are going to load that weapon with ammunition. The ammo is praise and worship. Imagine a force field, it is powered and activated through gratitude and thanksgiving. Employ both fo these things and you are fully protected.

TKO stands for Total Knock Out but remember this for your day to day struggles….The Kingdom Overrides (TKO)

Matthew 4:10-11
10 Then Jesus said to him, “Begone, Satan! For it is written,
“‘You shall worship the Lord your God
and Him only shall you serve.’”
11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him.

Luke 10:16  He who hears you, hears me…

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,
but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

Romans 1:16  I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation…

James 4:7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

 PRAISE AS A SPIRITUAL WEAPON

2 Chron. 20:1
It happened after this that the people of Moab with the people of Ammon, and others with them besides the Ammonites, came to battle against Jehoshaphat.

2 Chron. 20:15 And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: ’Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

2 Chron. 20:17 You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.”

2 Chron. 20:21-25 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying:

“Praise the Lord, For His mercy endures forever.”

[22] Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. [23] For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another. [24] So when Judah came to a place overlooking the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude; and there were their dead bodies, fallen on the earth. No one had escaped. [25] When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away their spoil, they found among them an abundance of valuables on the dead bodies, and precious jewelry, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away; and they were three days gathering the spoil because there was so much.

Spiritual Implication:
Praise lifts your eyes from the battle to the victory, for Christ is already(excerpt from http://www.sermoncentral.com/sermons/how-praise-can-be-a-weapon-in-spiritual-warfare-timothy-lee-sermon-on-worship-benefits-71161.asp )

Audible and visual interference is no match for Gods anointed 3/26/18

 

Sometimes we are allowed to experience physical representations of actual spiritual lessons and training. The ultimate goal of that is to empower you and quicken you to quickly discerning Gods will, leading to immediate obedience and action.

When the storms of life come, they are sometimes swift, unrelenting, disorienting. We have to know where our true north is. If the lights are out and the ground is now moving, your physical senses will fail you. Many times, instinct activates the carnal but the battle is won with spiritual prowess.

We need not be worried or dismayed, scripture tells us that Our Lord is ever cognizant of our location and proximity we are under divine surveillance. It also reminds us that we know His voice, He is our good shepherd. Trust and an understanding of whats at your disposal is what’s needed.

Knowing how to access that and when to, is vital. God is always present where our praises are. It’s evident then, as we wield our swords and lift the shields that we do so with His Magnificent name upon our  lips, incessantly, unwavering, ever praising. Praising and thanking, thanking and praising, this turns the murky waters clear, levels the field, exposes the traps, encamps the wicked and exposes the enemy.

 

“You’re going to face a powerful, invisible enemy every day-the Devil. …Put on your body armor and be prepared to fight him and his demonic hosts. Put on every piece of your battle dress” (Ephesians 6:10-20).

“Stand…having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God; praying always. . . .” (verses 14-18)
John 10:27-28 
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Genesis 28:15 – “I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”Psalm 32:8 – I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.

Proverbs 15:3 – The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.

Deuteronomy 32:10 – In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye.

Psalm 32:8 – I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.

Proverbs 15:3 – The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.

Deuteronomy 32:10 – In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye.

Steps, moves and maneuvers 3/5/18

 

Have you ever been so caught up in a whirlwind that you later realized, wow…I was protected over here in this direction, not even knowing what potential was brewing because you were distracted looking over there?!. That just has to show you how faithful and awesome God really is!

This is a definitive time frame of upheaval for so many. The enemy surely wants us to feel off balance, uneasy, unsure. More than ever we have to stand firm. With our feet planted and our faces like a flint. Standing fast against the enemy, unmoved.

Doors are opening that no man can shut and God is surely placing blockades of prevention, as only He can,  against the plans of the enemy. When God shuts a door, its not a door anymore. He is thorough, staunch and impenetrable when its necessary.

I’ve seen significance in humility, honor & integrity. In the absence of those characteristics one finds dismissive haughtiness, power struggles and calculated interactions. Surely, the sign posts of hazardous conditions ahead and treacherous storms to line the path. Even so, our God sees afar off, even when our radar is off. How comforting to realize, He stands behind us, goes before us and walks alongside.

I fear not because I know that, I obey, surrender and trust. I enter into His rest, my strong-tower is ever before me, to encompass me, to embrace me, under His cloak I may find solace.  On the chess board of life, it might seem for a moment that we are exposed or vulnerable but our Heavenly Father is several moves ahead lining up the perfect check mate.  He is the King and always will defend  His Queen, His precious beloved.

 

 

Matthew 6:8

Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

 

Proverbs 18:10

The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.

 

Psalm 61:3

For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

 

Psalm 75

75 Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.

When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.

The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.

I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:

Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.

For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.

But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.

But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

10 All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

Revelation 3:7-13

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

The Fathers Love 2/5/18

Life has a funny way of throwing you a curve ball. I spent the last two months in a state of psuedo -numbness. My brothers passing really affected me so greatly. Part of me felt like he was the only one person left to  have been witness to all that I have been through, all that our family has been through. Someone who has known me since before I could speak. He too had been through so much, how could I deny that his going home to be with God is such a blessing for him. My connections to this world feel like they are dwindling and is that a bad thing? In my heart deep down, I just want Heaven. I want Jesus to come and for all of us to finally go home!

I had been feeling down, worn out, affected and broken. I was just longing for another encounter with the Lord. Needing His touch, His voice, His comfort. As I lay there, watching a prophet of God talk about how God sings over us. He starting singing this song, it really touched me, it was as if God himself was singing it to me, tears started to flow. Near the end of his sermon, he stated that he felt that even as he had just sang, that he believed God was going to be singing over us tonight and that some of us would even have encounters, where we could hear it. Just as he was saying this,  my ALEXA device , which I keep on my nightstand, initialized and begin to play “top christian music” . I was beyond blown away, knowing instantly this was God, getting my attention. I lowered the volume on the TV and wept as I listened. I soaked, I marvelled, I melted in the realization

This was the first three songs as they played….

1. Its not over Yet by King & Country

 

2. Your Love is Loyal – Lauren Daigle

3. Whm Shall I fear – Chris Tomlin

 

 

 

These songs just so ministered to my spirit, it was so amazing. There was another song that I have never heard before and I cant really remember it but at this point I was drifting off to sleep. I was so enveloped in His love, it was magnificent.

He desperately wants each of us to know how deeply in love with each of us that He is. Sometimes, the world we live in and the things we are exposed to dull His voice and His singing over us. The noise of this world can sometimes override His soft gentle voice but He never stops, never tires and never forfeits His position as our Father. He truly is Loyal!

I still want Heaven and I would say to this world my bags are packed! When that time comes I am so ready! I know though, as God spoke to my spirit that it is not over yet. There is more to be done, more experiences to be had, a deeper awakening for this world, greater impartations, gifts and anointings. I have been put in place for such a time as this for His glory and His harvest.

Heavenly Father, I pray and plead the blood of the lamb protection over me and mine, over everone who reads this. Lord, I ask that You give all Your children a similar encounter, a moment of extreme intimacy where there is no doubt in reason, in the natural or in the supernatural that it was You, the Almighty, so wonderful and might,y so all knowing and all encompassing. No denying, no explanations, just total perfection of timing and content that it is beyond, evident that it is YOU in that moment. I thank you Lord that you love me that much that you would bend down into my experience in such a way. It was exactly what I needed in that moment and I am forever grateful!AMEN

Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.

Psalm 86:15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

Psalm 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 

John 15:9-17 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.Abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another.

Romans 5:8 God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:2-5 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Romans 8:37-39  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.

Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved.

1 John 3:1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

1 John 4:7-8  Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.  Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

1 John 4:9-11 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

What could be blocking your blessings? 1/29/18

I had been watching a program recently, the topic was about coveting and wanting to take what is not yours. Obviously, this is forbidden. There is a commandment against this. I had spent an hour prior to this, speaking in tongues as I had been studying how doing this would allow me to pray perfectly, to step into greater impartation from God, deeper revelation and discernment. All of a sudden, the Holy Spirit revealed to me, that Yes, just as we are not to take what does not belong to us, we are to take what does! God’s word says we suffer from lack of knowledge. (Hosea 4:6) & (James 4:2-3) We have not because we ask no

Whta you are about to be exposed to is an investment in time, but so very worth it. The material below will reveal to you just how the enemy has been able to keep you from what is rightfully yours.

So what is it that is ours? Well, the list is innumerable, where to begin?! Let’s start with every blessing that was meant for you, that raise that was denied you, that item that was stolen from you, those years that the cankerworm destroyed. Everything that is done in darkness against you to keep you from God’s prosperity. Then we have the fruits of the spirit and the rightful inheritance of being in the grafted in bloodline, our pedigree blessing: Watch this video

 

 

So right there we need to have knowledge of what is OURS

 

Then, we have the blessings that are prevented from coming our way, sometimes by pure ignorance. We are so immersed in the patterns of this wicked world, when those hindrances are removed, we stand in direct line to receive everything that God has for us.

 

 

 

Lastly, I was instructed on the importance of “naming my seed” as I am faithful in the giving but had been lax in the keeping track of what was sewn and what harvest to expect.

 

 

Read this excerpt from: http://www.cfaith.com/index.php/blog/28-articles/prosperity/16740-name-your-seed-sow-itdont-throw-it  :

Let Me tell you something, Jesse. For years you never named your seed.

He was right. I didn’t know how many times I had given gifts – sometimes quite large gifts for me – in obedience to the Lord. Then months later, I would be walking past great fields of harvest that I didn’t know were mine. I would see harvests everywhere and think: God, this is what I need for my ministry.

Because I didn’t know what kind of seed I had sown, I didn’t know what kind of harvest to expect. I didn’t know I was walking past my harvests. As a result, the devil was able to control what belonged to me. He was standing by those harvests with his guards saying, “That’s not yours. This is the wealth of the wicked. You are the just.”

Satan was able to do it because I never named my seed. I didn’t know what I put in the ground, so how was I to know when it came back 30, 60, or 100-fold?

Sown or Thrown?
I was not operating according to a basic principle – sowing and reaping. Galatians 6:7 says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

“Whatsoever” you put in the ground is going to come up. “Whatsoever” encompasses all human activity. All our acts are forces. Every time we think, every time we feel, every time we exercise our will, we are sowing. So we have to consider our ways and give thought to what we are sowing. If you consider what you are sowing, then you will recognize your harvest.

What you sow is what you reap is the law of Genesis 1:12, that every seed reproduces after its kind: “And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”

All of life, everything you do, is a process of sowing. You sow clothes, you get clothes. You sow healing, you get healing. I told a lady one time, “I want to pray for you so I can feel better.”

“No, you mean so I can feel better.”

“No, so I can feel better,” I said. After I prayed for her, I said, “Oh, I feel better.”

“So do I,” she said.

“Go sow. Go sow,” I said. “More health will come to you.”

Understand what tithing does. It meets the general operating expense of the church, such as salaries, light bills and upkeep. When you brought meat to God’s house, that meat met the necessities of God’s house. Because you met the necessities of God’s house, you harvested provision to meet the necessities of your house.

But when you gave an offering above the tithe without naming it, you were throwing it instead of sowing it, and you lost it before you got out the door. You would see a need and throw money at it, not even thinking about naming the type of seed you were sowing or naming your harvest. That seed would land on top of the ground and before you got out the church door, the devil would steal it.

So, you were eating and paying the light bill, but you continued to face the loan payments. That’s not what God wants. He wants His people to be blessed. He wants His Church to be out of debt. The Church will be out of debt when the people are out of debt. Deception has kept God’s people without their full entitlement.

Thank you Lord. I pray and plead the blood of the Lamb protection over me and mine, over all of us , Your children. Lord help us to discern this wisdom, to protect our blessings and to claim what is rightfully ours. Lord, remind us to name our seed and to expect a bountiful harvest. Encourage us to give as we are called to, cheerfully. Lord, help us to be a blessing to as many as possible and Lord, help us to sever any unhealthy ties that might exist in our lives with the principalities of Baal. Cleanse us and restore us, lead s into our divine inheritance. In the Mighty name of Yehushua Hamashiach, Jesus Christ our Lord! AMEN

In the storm not the rainbow!

We are instructed to praise Him in the Storm! In the very midst of heartache, troubles and calamity. This is where our alms derive equity and power.

Its very easy to give thanks after something has favorably been turned in your direction. God wants to see our faith and our commitment to Him no matter how the circumstances may appear. He can turn any bad event right around and can just as easily pull forward a blessing from the worst of situations.

I like to call it, ‘saying the truth in advance’. Example. “Thank you Father that you go before me in all matters, including this one, and that this is all part of the plan to bring to me what is needed. Nothing escapes Your eye, and no good thing shall be withheld. I praise You Lord that I am not forgotten, I am not ashamed and I am not alone. You are my rock, my fortress, my deliver, my strong tower and my provider.”

It is possible, and most often very much the case, that our situation is a perfect set up, a scenario and a backdrop for those who grab front row seats to watch us squirm. Well, God has the final say so, and the Holy Spirit uses some situations to deliver powerful testimonies of unbelievable proportions to the reprobate. Those individuals who have been turned over to themselves, with their sins and their rebellion. There is no guarantee that your miraculous event will convert them, but that’s not your issue to worry over. You are either a witness against or a witness to. How awesome though to be used for His glory and quite possibly someone’s salvation.

It is my opinion that anyone who is seeking to gain access to the front row of my demise out to put in for a refund asap, and that means you, lucifer!

The bigger the problem the grander the miracle. God does not orchestrate the foibles but He does promise to use them, someway, somehow to our advantage. We must just know and trust that as fact. The devils only power to hurt God is to somehow hurt us. We see in scripture though, that even when that happens, God remands the devil to pay seven times greater for our losses.

God, You are so good to us, its astounding. Such provision, such sacrifice and all for our benefit. As unworthy as we are, You are so merciful. Oh how you must Love us!

 

Heavenly Father, I pray and plead the blood of the lamb protection over me and mine, over you and yours and over everyone connected to this and through this. Thank you Lord that You send Your servant forward, in a multitude of ways. That You also draw those to Your will and way daily. Thank you Lord that the Holy Spirit is speaking to someone right now, assuring them that this is not over and that even though it seems grim, it is not the final curtain call. This is simply the stage set for a Grand Miracle of epic design. Praise it forward and Lord, take all the credit, while winning souls for the Kingdom! AMEN

 

Proverbs 6:31

But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

 

Psalm 34King James Version (KJV)

34 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.

11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?

13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

16 The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.

Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. …

Authority and validation (revisited from 12/19/11)

Goooood Morninnnnnnnnnnng!

 

 

Does the Sun need to be validated in order to shine brightly, isnt its presence enough? ..

I recall an occassion some years back; I was conversing with a group of friends and acquaintances, each was sharing valuable insights, stories &; assorted tidbits of information. A particular subject arose that I had measurable insight on, as I proceeded to speak, sharing what I knew; I was essentially called onto the carpet by someone to validate my words. Essentially what was said was that I speak with such Authority on things that a person might be inclined to just take what I say as fact regardless of whether or not it was valid. Yes, it was sort of insulting but I chose to address the real issue. I asked a few pointed questions, starting with; (1.) Have you ever known me to intentionally mislead anyone?…The answer, “No, you tend to take people under your wing, wanting to protect them”…I shook my head in agreement. Next, I asked, “Other than when I have something really amazing to share do you find me wrestling to dominate a conversation?”, The answer again was…”NO, not at all, you are a great listener”…By now my leading questions agitated this person enough that they rebutted with, “Well, if what you say is true, who and what entity is the source, from where did you learn it?”  I said; “Sometimes in life, the edification of actionable truth is more valuable than the pursuit of a validating the confined origin. Take what I say away with you and kick the tires a bit, you’ll come to find the soundness and solidity of it” For whatever reason God spoke through me in that and the issue was dropped.

Job 32:8
8But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.

Contrary to what was suggested; I am a huge proponent of validating, cross-referencing, finding a solid footing to anchor a belief. There are some things that come to your knowledge by the spirit of God in an instant, where you don’t know how you know it, how it arrived other than the instant it clicks in your spirit. It is from this place where I had been speaking. It is the counterpoint of human intellect and a personal responsibility toward what is given and try it, search it out, ask for revelation, prove it right or wrong or just sit with it a bit and let God reveal the message with further confirmations in mind/soul/spirit.

I’ve always been what I would call the Ultimate Optimist, I have a great ability to imagine, dream and desire the best possible outcome. When faced with the opposite, in fact, it just assures me that it THEREFORE MUST EXIST, simply based on the principle that if there is an obvious down, there is also an up, even if it hasn’t shown yet. This world is temporal, a place of degrees and axioms.

The message that God has spoken so deeply on a level where words never even entered but only assured knowing is this, our experiences here are coming to a place of quickening; where thoughts become manifest, desires and dreams will drive up upon you, honking the horn, Impossible for some will be possible for others (for those who never dared to un-believe in them) limitations will be self-induced prisons and the Children of God will be Casting out devils from those who have given themselves over to wrongful thoughts &; actions/ Healing the sick for those who fear disease so deeply that they manifest it &; Moving Mountains out of the way for those who have built them with negative thoughts. All of these things will hinge upon harnessing God’s power, for those in close communion, full obedience and an eye on Zion!

John 14:12
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

 

1 Peter 2:6 Therefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious: and he that believes on him shall not be confounded.

(Paraphrased excerpt from Matthew 10:1 and Luke 9:1-2)
“Behold I give you authority over all the power of the enemy–over all the
powers of the devil–over all the powers of hell–over every diabolical spirit or
demon.”

The instruction here from the Lord is to get very familiar with His word, it is the gateway to the fulfillment of every promise and every possibility. Faith is substance: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.~ Hebrews 11:1

As we believe, we shall receive, in accordance with Gods will!

Phillipians 4:8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Abba Father, we seek your Divine Guidance here on this subject; we are at a crossroads between the needs that we face and the solutions that we are willing to accept. Help us to stretch far beyond our limitations to believe upon those things which bring life, health and joy. Help us to shun the imaginings of every odd and weird thing that pertains to darkness and the what if’s of life. Help us turn our imaginations to believe upon All things possible within your Will and the Kingdom. In Jesus Mighty and precious name AMEN

Are you the one or of the 99?

 

 

It has been a long hiatus of sorts. a mental and spiritual regrouping. 2017 proved to be a very challenging year on many fronts. First, unforeseeable circumstances nearly claimed my life. This caused me to retract a bit and focus on my physical needs.  I have made a promise to myself to honor my instincts and be kind to myself in every way possible. Easier said than done, especially for a woman like myself who was taught to fight through. One of the reasons why I am still here is because of my tenacity. But then I realize, NO…thats my attitude (under my control) but my presence is fully purchased by grace. I am still here and I survived because God has ordained that. It is because my mission is not yet fulfilled. Otherwise, there are a host of reasons that could have, should have, would have wiped me out, but it was God who did not allow that, it’s just that simple.

My dear brother passed away a week before Thanksgiving. This kind and gentle man had so many struggles in his life. It’s hard not to miss him but I know in my heart of hearts that he is with Jesus, enjoying the eternal glory we are all promised when we surrender to the Lord. He loved Jesus and longed for heaven as I do. I am so glad that he has peace and happiness which he so very much deserves. His passing really rocked my world. It is just so much more different than losing a parent (which I and my siblings lost both of our parents). It caused me to really focus on the eternal. This place we know of as heaven but really do not fully comprehend.

From what I do know, so many of my most cherished loved ones are there. More importantly, Jesus; the one who makes it all possible is there. I want it more than anything else I can think of. If only I could expedite the process. In my heart of hearts I just wish and pray that every human being alive would just accept the Lord so that we could all just go home already! Oh, if it were only just that easy! Prayers they will not cease, and witnessing, that will continue for anyone willing to examine my demeanor or ask of my assistance, I readily will show Jesus to them, in my actions and in my love. Words are important, as long as they back up what we exhibit. Whatever else, whatever the Lord leads me to, in an effort to fulfill the hurrying and not the hastening of His coming. that is what I pray for.

I read somewhere that there are just 7 degrees of separation between us and every other person on this planet. If we would all just fervently pray over OUR CIRCLES OF INFLUENCE, the percentage, God is faithful to fulfill His promises. Ask and it is given, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you.

 

The passing of my brother caused me to reflect so deeply. this poem is probably the closest thing to describe how I feel. There is a longing in my soul that nothing in this world can cure, except Jesus! I just want us all to go home!

 

Please help me go HOME for Christmas
join me if you’ve no place to go

Its wonderful, joyous and bright
with love, full of praise and delight

Family and friends are all waiting
our neighbors and pets will all sing

The Joy and the beauty of Christmas
A place unlike any you’ve been

The only way we can get there
My Father, He needs you to care

Wouldnt be Christmas without you
Important you are, it’s so true

Yield to the Master, silent and still
ask Him to forgive and He surely will

Accept His love to become anew
that is all that you ever need do

Finally, all together at last
Pain and hurt to be things of the past

Jesus, Savior, God’s heavenly dove
Gifts never ending, laughter and love

Unending, unfolding evermore
Unlike this here or ever before

Come! You ready?! Let’s all plan to go
HOME is really just HEAVEN you know!
