Searching Infected or Effective

Becoming harsh, critical and impatient with people is a Major Red-Hot symptom and a true sign that we are becoming spiritually deaf and blind that is rooted in pride.

 

Becoming harsh, critical and impatient with people is a Major Red-Hot symptom and a true sign that we are becoming spiritually deaf and blind that is rooted in pride.

If we become Religious it shall cause us to become ineffective.  The blind lead the blind and they both will fall in a ditch. What did Jesus say about these people?

“But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.  Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch,”   Matthew 15:13-14 KJV.

When we lose our compassion for hurting humanity, we can easily become religious on external things that offer nothing eternal.  If we do not take heed to the warnings we cannot help but slide down that slippery slope none of us are exempt.

There are so many who take the turn pike of what seems to be the easy way around.  What happens next is that we avoid the very route of greatest need.

There is such a need to reach Samaria and the uttermost places in the world.

Jesus had a divine appointment by God with a multiple times divorced woman of ill repute!  The Jews called Samaritan’s dogs, and can you imagine what his disciples thought to see him talking to this Samaritan woman?

Although his disciples thought he was veering off course, this direct leading by Jesus opened the door to Samaria with the good news!

Not many could have fathomed the historic statement Jesus made that day!  Who would have known!

But when the woman at the well came that day who would have thought she became the first woman evangelist to her community.  Come and see the man that told me everything I ever done..

There is still such a need to relate to people where they are who desperately need our compassion!  These are they who seek the message of hope to their world.

There are still many Samaritans in our world, yes those who are untouchables of religion.

The religious get further away from effectiveness because these begin to veer off the path of The LORD focusing and going and turning inward instead of focus upward!

The sure way to tell it is a religious order is to watch and listen to their words and watch their actions.

Religion seeks to retain their hold of people instead of the people who seek to serve The LORD.  The religious seek out those who will serve out their demands that they can’t even accomplish.

These many religious orders are motivated by pride and feeding egos and they fall prey to a judgmental, critical organization that only the “perfected” elite can attain.  If you don’t measure up, they demand more and command that you get with the program.

Remember, the good Samaritan no longer looked for the way of avoidance of those hurting humanity and who are half dead. In our walk with Jesus there will be many temptations to get pulled from all sides and if ministry is no longer a loving caring convocation, it’s a farce.

We must remember that regardless of the wounded conditions, we must focus on Jesus and what he would do and where would he go.

We must never get caught up in religions rules and regulations who say get with the program!  These types of people you will come across daily, mark those and watch and see how they fare, as they give no room for God’s Loving Spirit.

“But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

And Jesus answering said, a certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.  And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.  But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, and went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.  And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him.  Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise,”    Luke 10:29-37 KJV.

Set Backs Come but Be of Good Cheer!

It does not matter what setbacks may come, God promises that He will take everything satan has meant for evil and turn it around for our good!

It does not matter what setbacks may come, God promises that He will take everything satan has meant for evil and turn it around for our good!

We must learn to lay hold on what was stolen from us spiritually, physically, financially by commanding using our authority in Christ!

When we go through times of humiliations, God is our vindicator and Judge as he knows all things. He is our very present help in times of trouble.

Vision

In prayer I saw a bald eagle that had been in some altercation and ended up on the ground with a broken wing.

The eagle became easy prey for predators.  The eagle was so vulnerable and it could not fly.

Then suddenly a number of older and stronger eagles began to surround the eagle that the broken wing.

Then I saw other eagles and I heard a loud sound and understood inwardly that this sound was the many waters and the prayers of the saints rising up as incense rising on the variable levels and wind currents of the Word of God.

The hovering and rising eagles watched and spoke in unison, saying; “We must go to our fallen comrade in arms and be diligent by lifting up the broken eagle in prayer.”

What I saw next was a corporate effort of folding and binding up the wing to the eagles’ side.

Although the eagle felt so vulnerable and afraid, the greater eagles that were sounder in their efforts had seen this fallen eagle and their prophetic response and presence brought forth lasting tranquil peace and direction about this situation.

While the other eagles of greater age and expanse of vision, all knew what had to be done so they surrounded the eagle with the broken wing, and hovered and these began in unison to flap their wings lifting the eagle with a net into even higher place.

The greater in strength began to lift the broken wing eagle up higher and much higher.  As I beheld this vision, the eagles that had seen the fall took the wounded eagle up to a very high cleft in the rock.

It was in the cleft of the rock that there were no predators and in this place of safety the eagle had to be placed in that cleft of the rock for a time and to receive a time to heal and commune with God.

“I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, what have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.  Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD,”   Jeremiah 6:6-7 KJV.

I also heard a secular song as I was praying and I had to find and listen to it and pass it along to you too.  The song is called “A Broken Wing.”

A Broken Wing ~  Lyrics

She loved him like he was
The last man on Earth
Gave him everything she ever had
He’d break her spirit down
Then come lovin’ up on her
Give a little then take it back

She’d tell him ’bout her dreams
He’d just shoot ’em down
Lord he loved to make her cry
You’re crazy for believin’
You’ll ever leave the ground
He said only angels know how to fly

And with a broken wing
She still sings
She keeps an eye over the sky
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you oughta see her fly

One Sunday morning
She didn’t go to church
He wondered why she didn’t leave
He went up to the bedroom
Found a note by the window
With the curtains blowin’ in the breeze

And with a broken wing
She still sings
She keeps an eye over the sky
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you oughta see her fly

With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you oughta see her fly
