Spiritual Command Center – Briefings!

Man usually measures things in life by the numbers that are met.  When we look at society’s way of success, it is usually just the opposite in God.

Man usually measures things in life by the numbers that are met.  When we look at society’s way of success, it is usually just the opposite in God.

Our success in God is based on our obedience to HIM and his Word.

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success,”   Joshua 1:8 KJV.

I want God to be pleased when HE sees what I do in private, for that is truly when the rubber meets the road.

Man measures everything by how things are presented and or how many hits do they get!

Man looks at numbers, and GOD looks at the heart.  How do we judge and measure our own heart?

It is so easy to fall into the pattern of men pleasers, legalism and religious spirits.  The LORD has been showing me about people who say they are of God, who are plagiarizing words that belong to another.

Why would a person of God do this?

What motives do you think would cause someone to do this?

Do we think God is pleased with that?

When we see what is popular or what seems successful, I have noticed that when words are posted, anointed and bring in a powerful boom, people are quick to grab on to what is being said, hoping to grab the tail end to get the approval or to be considered one of the popular vote.

I have noticed more clearly, that others who try to tap into someone else’s gifting, long for the popularity, fruit and the notoriety they see it brings in your lives.

No one knows what you went through to gain such gifting, and the mandatory humility involved, accept God.

Titles mean nothing without the authentic fruit of God’s Spirit, the gifts of God’s Spirit that are forged in the fire of refinement.

The person gains self gratification because it is all about their ego and a neurotic need to be like you or be YOU!  They desperately need their success and it is about that person and their success.

I have also watched how these respond when they don’t see the effects in their own life.  They get so desperate and think God will pass them by!

It is really a major issue and problem in the body of Christ.

These don’t see what God has for them, so they want YOU!  They will set a target it in their life and they will purpose to make themselves indispensable to you, even invading private places between you, the LORD, and also invade your time with family.

I have dealt with those who seek to ride the anointing in my life and God has allowed this to teach ME and others.  We all must have fruit of the gift God gives.

I have found personally, that the majority are there to promote themselves while they piggyback to a true prophetic word or gift of the LORD.

This beloved, is called prostituting the anointing.  It also has all the signs and symptoms of Witchcraft and Jezebel.

I have watched quietly when a powerful Word of God is written and published, it is like a feeding frenzy and a swarm of hornets, pretending to be bees.

Not everyone is for you!  Even when they give all sorts of praise and flattery to the cause.

We must remember a flattering mouth worketh ruin!  Some of these people don’t even realize what they are doing.

Man can be sincere and sincerely wrong when motives are not in check.  When God allows us to see behind the scenes, there are those jealous because they want what YOU have!

These will act like wonderful friends to begin with, but they are making you out like you are some sort of indispensable part of themselves!  One sign is they must be in control of all you do!

These will build you up with words and then as the relationship continues they become more aggressive of everything you do!

Why?  Because it must be done the same for them too!

If they cannot get the words from God, they will convince you that they are hearing the same thing!  Then it proceeds becoming control and manipulation.  They can’t get the words from God, so they become jealous of you.

If they can’t gain any notoriety and be part of what they see in you, they will turn away and rely on others words to make them accepted!

Watch this prayerfully as they will turn on you with vengeance.  Forgive, release them and let them go.

God is wanting to get to the heart conditions, not to promote someone’s own self agenda.  We need to stop creating Ishmael’s because of our unbelief and doubt.

God sees our motives and sees the heart of the matter.  The main player is the pride and Ego of man.

I have found that many do this and fail to see it within themselves.  These have such a desire to make their ministry happen, that they seek do we judge by the numbers of people who feed our egos?

We think we are falling behind when God is actually wanting to prepare you hold on and not try and make anything happen.  It takes years of preparation and testings.

We each have our own gifts and talents why do we feel we must find approval beloved?  The first and the last approval we are to seek is God’s approval.  I have found that many seek approval and fail to see it within themselves.

There is nothing wrong with encouraging a brother or sister to keep on pressing in.  It is so needed in the body!  We must learn to encourage ourselves in the LORD.

Is your success in God private or do you feel you must prove something to another person?  Do we search for approval by the numbers of responses?

Do we believe our personal success is based on the numbers of people we think we need?

We cannot see success by superficial fluffy stuff!  I would rather have a few good and faithful friends and fellow laborers than thousands of numbers!

Just think about it;  we could have very few friends and the rest of them deceptive and not of God.

Remember how the LORD was angry when David numbered Israel.  This is not a secular lifestyle, so secular things cannot abide in God’s kingdom.  Popularity is a place where we must master, only looking back as a hurdle before we moved on with God.

“And David’s heart smote him after that he had numbered the people.  And David said unto the LORD, I have sinned greatly in that I have done: and now, I beseech thee, O LORD, take away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.  For when David was up in the morning, the word of the LORD came unto the prophet Gad, David’s seer, saying, Go and say unto David, Thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three things; choose thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee.  So Gad came to David, and told him, and said unto him, shall seven years of famine come unto thee in thy land? or wilt thou flee three months before thine enemies, while they pursue thee? or that there be three days’ pestilence in thy land? now advise, and see what answer I shall return to him that sent me,”   2 Samuel 24:10-13 KJV.

Leviathan Strategy:

This evil principality, Leviathan, has been working behind the scenes for centuries.

Some of the signs or symptoms of this principality are; to block the flow, cause confusion and slander.

Leviathan seeks to contaminate each word, each person in a way that is twisted in meaning; causing chaos motivated by pride.  It bombards with slander, to discredit and to twist words.

The evil principality when it recognizes it is loosing, takes a sweep with its tail to wipe out as much as possible as it leaves.  Just as Jezebel, both of these demons are against all anointing on ministry; to destroy ministry.

When this plan is revealed by a prophet, it shocks most people who can’t recognize it, but suddenly at that moment, they have clarity and realize why, how and what happened. It brings needed revelation to the church.

This Leviathan knows it is loosing this battle and it will provoke a action to reaction within the person affected.

Most of these people don’t understand why they feel the way they do.  These feel physically attacked by others, and they react with twisted words to choke others.

As the spirit is losing its place of control, the provoked person then desperately tries to find others so they can slander or allow bitterness to gain access, causing a twisting of words to take over to validate their feelings.

We must learn how to help people release spirits without them lashing out and hurting others as they leave.

We must learn to MASTER these things to be effective leaders and team players for preparing God’s people for works of service!

We are living in the hour when satan is throwing out everything in his arsenal!

Spiritual Warfare rages against our Spiritual Body and all around the world!

We must hear, heed and lead the way, in Jesus’ name!

We Grow Up, We Grow Down!

The highest calling, priority by revelation, is not becoming who’s who, or having lofty titles with success!

The highest calling, priority by revelation, is not becoming who’s who, or having lofty titles with success!

Nor are great groups that are seen swirling above, in and of pinnacles of success!

Yes, it may seem authentic with those who are well known by man’s standards.  However it is contrary, when one finally finds nothing at the top of the pinnacle; only to be let down, bringing with it, spiritual burnout!

None even checked to see you coming; only you are going!  As you watch others rise and you can’t say a thing; Why?

Because you are so familiar with the game.  These see you as rejects and problems with their program.  These see you as rejected and falling away, when you don’t continue along with them the same?

They count you lost and leave you abandoned, due to their own cost.

It isn’t man’s accolades and approval that bring you into momentum upward! Not realizing the spiral caught you and you were ensnared though man’s momentum to jump in and get with the program.

Such feeling and anointing?

Deception is just that; a lie, something that is felt and believed about!  These received the deceptive truth as the leaders say, keep up the great work, no delay!

No one can continue that momentum without a crash.  And they will, for all those who love my appearing will be real.

The religious spiral and the requirement to meet the needs, became your greed.  How else can a engine be propelled up the mountain with no release or right strength?

Once the energy is spent and the spiral descends, then comes a wrench in the wheel which no man can heal.

You saw this as a seeming requirement of Me.  Not realizing, you invested many years of man’s approval that led to the pride of life.

Those who will travel the highway of holiness is a place once you have seen, become the end of man’s prideful dream.

As we learn now to bow out of man’s plan, and down and out of old ways we come to the final end….. of self!

As through the years of becoming something, to becoming nothing, then to becoming everything to God!  I have learned to become a vessel fit for the master’s use.

Keeping it simple, real, and keeping me innocent and childlike, is my goal.

Once we understand the child, and are able to see through child like ways, our understanding will be secure.  What child can be secure without parents?

Paul was a Pharisee of the Pharisees and a learned man, the best of his religion.  However His revelation of Christ along the road, set him on a new way and a new beginning.  He spiraled down from his experience, yet God used all his experiences to teach the church even today.

God doesn’t want us to grow up to grow away from Him.

What we learn in life it is all about self sufficiency.  In God it is just the opposite.

We are to find our sufficiency in God.  Many of us had to grow out of religious systems that kept us bound.  This bondage kept us from growing into childlikeness.

When we finally grow to be a child, and content in the palm of the Father’s hand; we learn to grow up is to grow down, humble as a child, In HIM.

“Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.  But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.  Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, and be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead,”   Philippians 3:5-11 KJV

Beware of False and Strange Fire!

The LORD says: “I have sent this day, revelation fire of thoughts, schemes and plans.  Fire in groups to the very thoughts and intents of the heart.”

I give you praise dearest  Father God and Man of War!  Reveal it all in Jesus name.

I speak liberty in the atmosphere where your people are hearing your clarion call!  Set them free and on fire burning away all the dross of unholy alliances!

Let them sense great release and resolve to obedience, Lord Almighty as your fire burns away all restraints.  I speak liberty now in Jesus name!

“The only thing that abides in the fire are those OF MY FIRE!

I have sent this day, revelation fire of thoughts, schemes and plans.  Fire in groups to the very thoughts and intents of the heart.

Nothing shall remain hidden any longer!  MY Fire is not given to them to feed unholy, ungodly egos!

So without MY true power in manifestation, what is left is demonic power! 

Beloved, beware of false and strange fire.  Know when to get up and leave!”

“Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
All of the true alliances shall shine revelation from my altar.  For who shall stand before me now?”   
Jeremiah 5:14.

“Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?”   Jeremiah 23:29.

“Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name.  But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay,”   Jeremiah 20:9.

Whose Mission Do You Promote?

There was once a young prophet who was sent by God to deliver a message to a king. God clearly instructed him not to stop and abide anywhere, but to come straight back, with no detours.

There was once a young prophet who was sent by God to deliver a message to a king.

God clearly instructed him not to stop and abide anywhere, but to come straight back, with no detours.

The young prophet prophesied concerning the judgment as he was told by God.  On his way home, the young prophet happened to meet an older prophet who had heard what was said and done through the word of the LORD.

The older prophet urged the younger prophet to come aside and eat and drink and be refreshed.

The younger prophet adamantly stated that he cannot stop, but must continue on the way home, as stated by the word of God.  But the older prophet lied and deceived the younger prophet, so he would heed him and come to his abode.

The older prophet said it was surely God’s will for him to eat and drink and be refreshed awhile.  The younger prophet, against his better judgment, heeded and relented.

The older prophet, through much control and manipulation, encouraged the younger prophet to eat and drink.  While they ate, suddenly the spirit of prophecy overtook the older prophet and he HAD STRONG WORD to prophesy to that younger prophet!

The LORD said he would die, for not being obedient to the LORD!

It matters not who or what the obstacle is that stands in your path to obedience with the Lord;  one must never deviate from that path!

As the young prophet quickly left the older prophet’s home, a lion met him and he was killed by the lion.  The lion and the donkey then stood by the road, to one side of the young prophet’s corpse.

Conviction came upon the older prophet and when he was told of it, he went to see this great sight, to see the lion and donkey still standing by the corpse, seemingly as a sign and wonder!

The older prophet grieved for the young man after the fact.  He was so convicted, that he said that when he died, he wanted to be buried in the same spot with the young prophet.

Just because a man or woman of God are highly favored and mature, aged and refined, doesn’t mean they know your assignment or requirements.

What did God tell you?  It matters not who they are or what they say.

What takes the preeminence is to obey God!  Be true to God, and let every man be a liar.

“God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged,”   Romans 3:4 KJV.

In your Christian walk, you shall be tested with this important point; TO STAY ON TARGET!

People will even get angry with you when you tell them “NO, because the LORD said No!”

God told the younger prophet exactly as He commanded.  He deviated due to what he reasoned in his mind and saw in his own experience.

The younger prophet doubted, since the older one had such persona and was so reassuring as he lied to him!  Thus, the young prophet doubted his own mission.

How many people have twisted your arm and caused you to doubt your mission?

What gets us in trouble?  Unbelief and doubt?  Thank God for grace, mercy and forgiveness.

That younger prophet was deceived through another prophet of God with a lie.  Imagine this happening to you?  This was a big lesson to all those who watched it unfold.

Maturity isn’t age or status; and not always or automatically God.

God was teaching all involved in this situation.

When in doubt, it is always best to remain on task with God’s plan at the beginning.  Always wait and return to your first love, to that love relationship which is always our first assignment.

Don’t deviate your path until the LORD begins releasing you.

This is a lesson we each must learn from God.  When things are confusing and foggy and you cannot get clarity; It is always good to go back to what God said at first.

Spiritual fog brings a deafening silence and confusion.  The motion suddenly stops and leaves an eerie silence.

Trust and remain steadfast to God!  God did not deviate His message!  Just because there are some who think they know better than you do; stand firm!

Just because people have needs and want your attention, doesn’t mean we fill it.  Be not hasty and miss the way!

*Study* 1 Kings chapter 13.
