Washington DC — The Call to Repentance

In a vision I saw House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and she was wearing black and her arms full of paperwork.

Vision:

I saw Nancy Pelosi and she was wearing black and her arms full of paperwork.

Suddenly she takes all the paperwork and she tosses them up high in the air and all the papers went in all different directions.

However, there is a transformation taking place where the papers midair is turned into confetti by The Angels of The LORD in celebration of The Articles of Impeachments defeat, as when the confetti comes down declaring the winner, in celebration!

The Articles of Impeachment will actuality expedite the will of the people AND GOD in determining and declaring the winner as confetti flies as we enter four more years for the nation of America.

Their hardened hearts and vengeance will backfire on them as they fight a battle they won’t win.  This is the year of unraveling and the year of unveiling as Truth is marching on!

Make your Vote count!

I speak that true Christians align to whom lines up with God’s Agenda aligning with the Word of The Living God!

How can you be a Christian democrat and hold to the murder of the unborn babies?

You will fully know them by their fruits.  This is the time to call it as you see it and a time of repentance at a national level!

There is a separation happening nationally with the goats among the sheep.

How will you know them?  Look at the fruit of the Spirit and the fruits of actions.

Pelosi impeachment sham will bring great shame.  Their obsession with pure hatred of President Trump will backfire on them and cost them many years.  The people of this nation are not stupid, they see what is happening!

“My Fire shall go deep and shall boil up from the foundations and all the root sources.  You shall witness what was hidden from a time gone by. 

The swamp shall be illuminated and you shall see what has been hidden in secret.

You shall see the power or control of unreasonable and arbitrary use of what has been kept hidden suddenly come forth from the left now.”

Their motives shall be revealed and they shall be ashamed who dared touch God’s appointed servant!  The left shall be left with confusion!  There will be no more delays, those who attempt to hold this nation hostage.

I see a warm blanket as it is being unraveled and what it was covering will be seen for what it is.

Just as wine ferments and has to be stirred so the sediment and lees are skimmed from the top, it is being revealed from what has been hidden from view.

“I AM causing the impurities and dregs to be skimmed off what was hidden in the swamp.”

You shall know them fully by their fruit.  There is no more gray area, no more lukewarm, you are either on The LORD’s side or not.

“I AM calling all to repentance!”

“Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD’S right hand shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewing shall be on they glory,”   Habakkuk 2:16-19 KJV.

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; these things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold
nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.  Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches,”   Revelations 3:14-22 KJV .

Echo of The Soul

This time of year and other notable times and holidays in our history can cause us such pain to remember.

If you find you are missing someone near and dear; perhaps someone you deeply love or loved, and to try to fathom the mountain you face, in attempting to get a grip is particularly excruciating this year.

You grieve, but it brings no closure.  So even in the midst of people, you may smile and are polite but inside feeling totally detached even within your own soul.

You try to distract yourself with busyness wondering why you can’t shake it.  You wonder why it is so hard to forgive, release them, and let them go.

In actuality, you have given heed to negativity in beating up your own thought processes and condemning yourself with self-hatred and self-condemnation.

Being our own worst enemy is very damaging and leaves us wide open for the enemy to come and agree with our own self negativity and this does so much damage within and if left unchecked, brings damage without.

Yes, we need to ask The LORD to forgive us but something I sense strongly is we must forgive ourselves.

“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.  And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.  There is none another commandment greater than these,”   Mark 12:30-31 KJV.

This time of year and other notable times and holidays in our history can cause us such pain to remember.

Our lives are an ongoing story being told; good and bad.  We are making memories beloved and memories are stored within our soul that can echo throughout our lives.

Sometimes remembering brings emotions to the forefront and can cause extreme hurtful feelings to surface.

No man can take your memories, but your emotions can enshrine you by keeping you bound in time in your body and soul.

If the people that hurt you or if YOU hurt you pray that God can help you forgive you and love you, then you can forgive them, by releasing them and let them go so you can move forward with your own life.

Bless them and speak words of gratitude to God for the times that we had, In the name of Jesus.

The Reckoning of The Heart

A new level of ruling and reigning is coming to America and God’s Word is our final authority!

We must educate ourselves, finding out who our public servants and representatives are locally, regionally, and nationally.

We, as Christians should educate ourselves and speak using our vote at the ballot box.  We must vote accordingly by our conscience; measuring those representatives who align themselves as closely as possible to God’s Word and godly policy.

As believers, we are the salt of the earth, and God wants to do a preserving work of grace with us and through us by sprinkling us out as seasoning to our world we live in.

We each need to make our part of this world better, well-seasoned, and palatable.  There is no standard in this entire world that we can go by except to fully align ourselves with God’s Word.

God’s Word is our final authority.

The separation of Church and State was what kept the Church from being involved in government in America for decades.

God has always been involved in government, for the government shall rest upon His shoulders.  Read your bible!  Be not deceived what a man sows is what he reaps.

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace,”    Isaiah 9:6 KJV.

A new level of ruling and reigning is coming to America!

For too long, people wanted separation of Church and state and it caused the Church to fall asleep for decade’s as we were being gradually immersed into poison!

“Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?”   1 Corinthians 6:2-3 KJV.

“There shall be a reckoning for I have seen your tears and frustrations, don’t think that I have forgotten you.

I have collected each precious tear in a bottle dear and I understand your thoughts and the depth of your heart.

You have come face to face with yourself and it has frightened you.  You thought you knew yourself but have found out that you don’t know anything.

Beloved this revelation has been shocking to you that you cannot trust yourself.

This vulnerability you experience is a good thing for when your own heart condemns you, I AM greater than your own heart and thoughts.

You must learn to trust Me in all things, even trusting Me more than your own self.  It is not good to rely and trust yourself.  I have the words of life and know all things.

Come away My beloved, let me soothe your broken heart.  I know where your destiny takes you, so trust and believed it’s true.

Even if all men forsake you and stand against you, I have chosen you and you are mine.

I have chiseled you out of the mount Zion, dug deep finding the raw stone that most would toss aside, not knowing or recognizing. 

But I know you and I founded your potential, I created you from the beginning to the end, as the most precious diamond I delicately faceted you.  You are brilliant and reflect heaven on earth.

I have chosen you and My timing is correct, you have not been forgotten, you have not missed historical events though it appears that all have left you alone.

Abraham was alone when I manifested the burning bush.  Mary was alone when the angel Gabriel appeared announcing My birth.

Many are alone even now as vessels being prepared on the potter’s wheel.  Being alone has tried and refined you so that your total trust is in Me.

Where could Peter go?  As many of you say, where can I go?  For Peter said, you alone have the words of life.

For if all men leave you, I will never leave you nor forsake you, and you shall be clothed in garments of brilliant, dazzling white.

Beloved, know that all these things are indeed happening and change your mind and thoughts towards My truth.

Truly I AM your shield and buckler, I have been aware of every thought, every temptation, every plot, plan, and conspiracy, nothing has been unnoticed.

You are never alone even until the very ends of the earth.  Walk on, My beloved, walk on!”  says the Lord of Hosts!

“For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.  Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.  And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His Commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight,”   1 John 3:20-22 KJV.

The Torch of a New Day

This has been a very severe season of testing and trying and the objects of the test and trial were being tested too.

This has been a very severe season of testing and trying and the objects of the test and trial were being tested too.

Dying to the flesh is not fun, it is hard!

However, it is the only way that we are made strong that we may rise to newness of life!

It is during these times that we find out new things about ourselves that we can really see what we are capable of, shockingly so!

Satan knows our weakness and he is trying us in all forms, as his desperation is evident to stop us any way he can.

He knows we are understanding more of who we are in Christ and he plans in advance to take us out.  He devises plans in advance for months even years for one moment in time!

The believer who knows who they are in Christ are tested and if we weaken in any small way, and sin, it opens up a crack in our armor and when that happens, the enemy bombards us in that area with all he can muster up because he knows that this is the only way he can get legal authority to attack us when we open that door and sin.

But once we know where we failed we must quickly repent and close that door quickly and tell the devil to go!

So, all of those many plans the devil spent on you are broken in a moment!  Tell the devil to go!  And give the devil no more place in your life!

It is when things seem like your alone and nothing is working right or no one understands, this is when we are tested and tried the most.

We must know even in the darkness when things are foggy to be happy alone with Jesus in following His way.  If we don’t, we can begin to look for other things to partake of and get into big trouble!

Do not let the devil bait you!  The enemy knows your weakness and he will use bait that is especially something you are weak to and he will hook you!

The enemy is an assassin and he is out to suddenly aim at your character to discredit you and ruin your name and life.

Have you noticed major change?  And it appears many of your friends are gone and you are all alone?  That is when the enemy tries and attacks us!

As I was praying, I heard the song from the 1970s by Johnny Nash called “I can see clearly.”

Lyrics  ©Johnny Nash,

“I can see clearly now the rain is gone, I can see all obstacles in my way, gone are the dark clouds that had me blind, it’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day, I think I can make it now the pain is gone all of the bad feelings have disappeared, here is the rainbow I’ve been praying for, it’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day. Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies, look straight ahead, there’s nothing but blue skies.”

The LORD wants you to know you came through, you broke through the test and you overcame the trial of your character and he is proud of you!  You said it is written!  Glory to God!

You are emerging from the dark clouds and you are stronger, you are wiser.  You are emerging and you are being shown that you are real.  I can see many emerging from the dark clouds and moving straight ahead towards the bright sunshine.

This is where things are changing as you have passed from death to life and you are growing through these experiences and choose life!

I see you are carrying a torch-lit up for others who are weak to follow the light of God’s anointing who also emerge but are tattered and torn, but these too will see the torch of God’s anointing and be healed and restored from the trial they suffered through.

This has been cycles and seasons of trial, tests, and the things you lost will come around again in time.

You walk in what you have attained!  There have been cycles and patterns for you not to pattern after anymore, “for when a man’s way pleases The LORD he will make even his enemies to be at peace with him.”

You use to pray and you struggled to ask God why can’t I pray, why do I struggle to pray?

God wants you to know at the very thought of prayer and attempts to pray in the darkness, every word was heard.

Though you felt alone and that God did not hear, you were being tested to not trust in your surroundings, but you pray anyway and The LORD your God was testing you for prayer isn’t a feeling, it’s a fact that is spoken or thought towards God.

For thus says The LORD, “I look for one who doesn’t take My presence for granted.  Your personal responsibility is to have clean hands and a pure heart.

I see the wounds of war with scars all over my body, these things are not hidden but in full view. 

These are battle wounds and they speak of history for others to follow behind you too that will learn from your victories and defeats.

The deep places you desired have a heavy price.  These things you have wanted to see are happening.

You have been jealous of other’s relationships when everything I have is yours.  Why do you seek after another’s gift or destiny?

Faithful brother, do not get angry at your prodigal brother who returned with great happiness to My House.

Everything I have is available to you but these who return were lost but they found their way by the torch that opens the way.”

“And he said, A certain man had two sons:  and the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.  And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.  And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, and am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: and bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: for this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.
And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.  And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.  And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: but as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.  It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found,”
   Luke 15:11-22.

The Religious Legalist

I have prayed and questioned God today as pertaining to my former religious life that is buried and in the grave.

I have prayed and questioned God today as pertaining to my former religious life that is buried and in the grave.

It is buried true, but there on that tomb is a testimony that The LORD wants me to share.  He wills that I share portions of my former life in hopes to help others who may be in similar places.

God did tell me a long time ago, that He would take everything in my life and turn it around for good and He would use my testimony to help others.

As you read the absolute naked portions of my former life, please don’t judge me, but pray for me and others who read this, who are or were like I was.

Pray that The LORD gives you compassion to wounded souls like I was.

Important!  Balance!  

This isn’t a message for people who only want to get by or pretend.  This message is for people who want to be everything God wants, but they go to the extreme and burn-out in their abilities, becoming religious.

This message isn’t about people who only want fire insurance from hell, or those who only want to do the bare minimum to get by.

I wondered how many of us have ever felt like we’re running in circles chasing our own tail?

How many of us spend enormous amounts of time, effort, and energy doing something for God, but we end up achieving nothing?

How many of us think we are entitled to so much more, but we end up wondering why we cannot get beyond whatever this is?

This process perplexed me and made me feel so vulnerable and weak and I didn’t understand why it kept happening.

This topic troubled me for a number of years, because I had wrong thinking and a wrong belief system.

It wasn’t until the many years of circling around that same mountain, defeated, that I got serious with God as to why this kept happening to me!

I wanted to know what I was doing wrong, and I really did want to know what I was believing, even if it cost me positions and relationships.

I was so upset and desperate that it was at this point when He began showing me the error of my belief system.

Being a go-getter for God and extremely disciplined, I went hard after God to the max for years, even when I ran off on my own accord for God!

However, I couldn’t understand why I ended up in the same place each year!  I kept burning out and it affected me spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

I would hear people say, “I would rather burn-out for God than to just exist in obscurity.”  Which was totally pride.  And in loving people, we want to be totally admired and envied; we want people to love us and think we are great.

Being amongst the legalist extreme in religion, was more regarded than those who pretend and seem to just get by in their faith; even while we’re saying, we are having so much fun!

God never intended that we be fulfilled in life without Him, but He gave us a free will and free choice.

In legalism, we want to affect the world around us, when in actuality we are really driving those we love mad!   I heard these things, “Why don’t you just enjoy your life?”

When I really thought about that, I was perplexed as I didn’t know how to enjoy my life as a legalist, because I had a reputation to keep up and I gave up my life to be this person!

And there were so many laws and demands to remain usable in that twisted world of religion.

I wanted to be a gospel peace maker among the numbers of brethren and especially among denominations.  I preached unity and for people to get along with their differences.

I had a type A personality and based everything and the way I lived on how perfectly I could remain.

I thought at the time that I understood that Christ saved me and delivered me, but inside I saw myself as not good enough, so I had to keep up the standard of all those around me and do all the things required of me.

Even though I loved God, I didn’t really understand the basis of my salvation, and thought I had to keep up, then when I would burn-out, I would see God as a task master and unattainable unless I remain strong in my own power, because he only wanted the best and strongest, like Darwin’s theory of the survival of the fittest.

And to add to the mix, I expected others to seek God with the same fervor I had and I had a very judgmental spirit.

I was able to pull order out of disorder in all sorts of situations in religion.  I was in control and I was needed — at least at the time.  I did what needed to be done, but I was in a race with myself and I was miserable and I could feel each time like I was coming apart.

What is a type A personality?
Definition and meaning:  “Type A personality:  A temperament characterized by excessive ambition, aggression, competitiveness, drive, impatience, need for control, focus on quantity over quality and unrealistic sense of urgency.  It is commonly associated with risk of coronary disease and other stress-related ailments.”    © businessdictionary.com

When I would burn-out physically, I was so full of anxiety and fear because I felt I wasn’t strong enough to prevail.  I felt so weak and out of it that I would not make it to Heaven, because I was not strong enough and didn’t have what it would take.

So many issues stemmed from that including a strong spirit of pride, arrogance, and judgmentalism I had.  Any time I was weak, I condemned myself and beat myself down with self-hatred and self-loathing.

It would take me weeks to recover and I would hear things like grace and mercy and for a time I would believe it, that God accepted me as I was…… but once I was strong again, I would blow it off and go back to my flawed belief system.

Although I believed in the grace and mercy of God, I thought it was predicated on my behavior modification and lifestyle.  I would begin to get a glimpse of the nature and character of God in those down times, but once I was strong again, I embraced my former belief system based on fear.

I have never seen anyone who was strong-armed to the altar through fear or torment, who has remained.

Fear doesn’t save people, love does.  Love keeps us for we are kept by the power of God!

It is through God’s lovingkindness that He leads us to repentance.  God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, but of power love, and a sound mind and perfect love cast out all fear for fear has torment.

I came to a place of sudden loss of three major happenings in my life all in the same time frame.  I found myself suddenly, when whatever it was within me that gave me strength was depleted and gone!

Suddenly I broke down!  Something within me broke and whatever it was that kept me strong, was suddenly gone and no matter how much I fasted and prayed, I could not get over this.

Something within me broke and I found I had no control over my life anymore.  I had never felt so vulnerable.  I asked for prayer from the Church and people fasted and prayed for me — all to no avail.

I felt I was blinded and did not know my way, led only about by people who then started hating on me, because I wasn’t the strong Sherry they knew.

Then I learned the Church I served in blasted me from the pulpit and told the others to stay away from me, because I was a false prophet!  I was one of their ministers and had been under their authority for three years, totally involved in all portions of that ministry!

The Church and every friend I thought I had, judged me and abandoned me.  I was left alone with no hope.

It felt like they took a sharp knife and stabbed me in the heart and twisted it.  Something broke and was never the same again.

Like having a broken arm without getting it set in alignment, and it has never been the same and that person who was so strong, was no longer was there.

Part of me died never recovered.  I was beyond exhaustion; total exhaustion and I cried all the time —  but little did I know I was on my way to freedom!

In my pursuit of God after these experiences, I learned I had a fear of God that wasn’t according to knowledge, and it caused me to see everything through legalism and religion.

You see, their belief was I needed to be strong and keep on going, or I would not make it into heaven.

Everything was based on performance not the grace and mercy of God and His finished work.  I saw God as an angry God towards humanity, and especially towards me!

After this experience, I could not pray and I felt like I had gone beyond the grace and mercy of God.  I was existing, hurt, wounded, and heading for certain death — I thought.

But oh, The Blood of Jesus!  Oh, the grace and mercy of God!  God was answering my prayers that I wondered about as why I was continually going around in circles.

As you continue to freedom in Christ, don’t let man limit you, because they can’t keep you under their control.

It happens more than you know.  I have had people abandon me just because I wasn’t allowed by God to conform to their agenda.

When you are released, you will be shocked at how much you were under control and the weight will fly off of you!  You will feel it release!

I want you to know straight up, that my desire is to never offend, but I would much rather offend man than God.

People will try to strong-arm us to intimidate, force, control, and to keep us bound to their experience when God has so much more for you.  You don’t need to apologize for being obedient to God!

God sets you free and who knows what He has planned for you! 

You will be free, and may even have a major change into a different career field of ministry!  It’s not over, you have just begun!

It isn’t a demotion, but a promotion into what is needed for each of us to function within The Body of Christ.  What you have attained thus far in God isn’t taken away, for the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

“For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance,”   Romans 11:29 KJV.

This topic isn’t about people who just want to get by, or about people who pretend to be believers but who bear no fruit of the Spirit.

This topic is for the people who love God, but have been captives of legalism and religion, like me.

I was extreme with God and had never understood God’s grace or mercy, or Christ and His finished work on the cross.

“For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment,”   James 2:13 KJV.

If you don’t know who you are, then people will tell you who you are and you will be whom they want you to be, instead of whom God wants you to be.

We must remember, those who compare themselves among themselves are not wise.  So look into the mirror of God’s Word and be whom He wants you to be.

Religion is a return to bondage, for your righteousness is self-motivated by your behaviors.

Religion focuses on the flesh of man.  Christianity focuses on the flesh of the finished work of Christ.

Legalism causes our heart to be hard.  A legalist wants everyone to do it their way, or you are not good enough or they label you as not being a Christian.

It makes the religious group mad when you are not doing what they want, and follow all their rules, especially if God is still blessing you!

A legalist is very intolerant of anyone who doesn’t measure up to his or her standards.

More next time……..

It is Written!

Jesus was tempted in all points like we are, but He was perfect and when He was tempted, He resounded, “IT IS WRITTEN….”  

As I prayed, I saw in the spirit an oil derrick and it was being drilled.  Suddenly I saw a gusher breakthrough and it went so high in the sky!

Many of you are like that; like being in that drilling process.  You are seeking God and it feels like you are drilling and pressing in so hard!

But it has been so long and issues so frequent that you have questioned as to why you must go through such adversity.  Some of you have questioned your very salvation.

Many of you have had such opposition that you began to question the validity of your experience with The LORD and have doubted.

Many have said that the battle is over. (Indeed, partially true)  Yes, The LORD Jesus Christ once and for all settled our eternal salvation, but there are false doctrines out there which say we have no battles to contend in this life as a Christian!

We must put on our Armor and carry our Weapon, which is the Word of God!  We must develop through knowing God’s Word —  for the Word of God is our powerful weapon!

This weapon is like a two-edged sword and we must focus on God and focus our mind on where the real battles lie and which weapon, which scripture we must counter-attack with.

Jesus was tempted in all points like we are, but He was perfect and when He was tempted, He resounded, “IT IS WRITTEN….”   (Matthew 4)

The battle is The LORD’s and He goes before us making every crooked path straight!  There are many battles we face in our lives and if the battles were over, why do we need armor and the sword of the Spirit?

Fight against false doctrines and give them no place in your life! (Ephesians 6).  Of course the enemy doesn’t want you to know you have the power to break his strongholds, plots, and schemes!

However, we are learning and becoming strong against the enemy, because of the weight of the resistance we face!  [Resistance builds muscles!]

We are being trained so that our spiritual muscles grows and we become strong and great contenders against the enemy’s plans.

When we resist the demonic winds and fire, we are finding that opposition has actually pushed us closer to The LORD in intimacy and fiery fervency!

Satan does not go after people who are NOT a threat to his agendas.  He goes after those who shall make a difference in this world for God.  Your greatest moments in God come on the heels of great tests and trials.

The LORD will be glorified greatly with HIS end-time Army!  His Army runs through a troop and leaps over walls defeating the plans of darkness!

You shall leap supernaturally over the enemy’s hurdles, as you are above and not beneath, the head and not the tail!

You shall be amazed at how God will manifest himself in your lives.  Nothing is higher than God.

When we come into alignment with Him, all things are possible to them that believe!  When the enemy comes in like a flood, God will use YOU to leap over every conspiracy and plan of darkness!

You are not alone and God is aware of all things in your lives!  Remember, you are that STANDARD against the enemy that God is raising up.

This is your destiny coming to pass beloved!  Just your presence intimidates the devil and his demons as they run in terror when you carry God’s presence!

We must continue to learn who we are in Christ and develop by getting that Word of God within, so we learn to take dominion and a stand wherever our feet take us!

I can see how The LORD is opening our understanding to deeper and greater heights.

I heard this, that The LORD wanted his beloved not to be afraid or dismayed, and that even in all their distractions and unplanned events, The LORD is still on His Throne and He has so many angels watching over you and they are helping you even though you may not feel it or see it.

The LORD wants you to know that HE is with you, even in distractions and events inspired by the enemy to keep you offline, off base, and to make you think you are vulnerable and have lost it!

You have been lassoed and you had to attend those events, but you longed for the Courts of God.

There are others who have lost important relationships, but you cannot control or change another person.

Forgive them!  Release them!  And then let them go.

The LORD knows you had no control over those unplanned events.  Forgive yourself beloved.  Trust The LORD and realize He is for you not against you.

Remember those who left you because of the cause of Christ, that they could not continue with you, because you have The Heart for The Father.

Be encouraged beloved…..

“The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed!  it had been good for that man if he had not been born,”   Matthew 26:24 KJV.

Your Power of Attorney

No matter what and where our destiny lies, God has calculated a plan for us that is affirmed and confirmed by The Will and Word of God!

No matter what and where our destiny lies in The Kingdom, God has calculated an ultimate plan for us that is affirmed and confirmed by The Will and Word of God!

However, it is only conformed into us when we take the third piece of the pie that makes us the whole.

The Holy Spirit is hovering over the land looking for those who receive Jesus as LORD and He comes and abides in us.

When we are in agreement with The Holy Spirit and filled with Him, it is Christ in us the hope of glory!  The enemy cannot stop a believer who knows who they are in Christ!

The enemy’s top calculated plans of events are being revealed.  Even now, as we seek The LORD, we find Him when we seek Him with our whole hearts.

To be on top of the many things that are thrown at us daily, it is mandatory that we must learn to make time and take time, to become still, small, and quiet in our prayer time.

I relish my quiet time in silence.  When I take a hold of me and quiet myself from all the noise, distractions, and the many hindrances that the world pulls at me, I can finally hear Him!

In this day and age of massive amounts of communications, distractions, and temptations, it takes strength of fortitude, and discipline to grab on to your day to be able to hear that still, small voice, and know He is God!

We find Him as we seek Him with our whole heart — and He is not far from those who diligently seek him.

” ‘For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,’ saith The LORD, ‘thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.  Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.  And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart,’ ”   Jeremiah 29:11-13 KJV.

As the enemy’s plans of events are being revealed; we can know them like marks shown on a map.

It is said that The LORD’s mind is on you for good, but the enemy’s mind is on you to ultimately destroy you anyway he can.  But greater is He Who is in us, than he that is in the world!

There are many plans added by our enemy to keep us too busy so we don’t have time for God.  And these plans may be good ones with well-meaning individuals, but just because there is a need, doesn’t mean we must fill it.

We must keep God first, even when it comes to ministry related business.

God has secret plans and doesn’t give us much information to go on, but expects us to grow and to have faith and trust in God.  With each addition though, we can see perfectly where this conflict strategic goal is!

By Faith, as we align ourselves with The LORD’s will, He will be with us and for us in the earth.  I describe these as marks shown on a map — revealing the areas of turmoil.

For wherever you see and experience turmoil, the enemy is always behind the scenes trying to cause territory to be stolen and for some he does it legally because we forget who we are in Christ.

“The law of The LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of The LORD is sure, making wise the simple.  The statutes of The LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of The LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes,”   Psalms 19:7-8 KJV.

Jesus was tempted in the wilderness as He fasted and prayed and part of the temptation He endured was when Satan presented the entire kingdoms of the world which he would give, if Jesus would fall down and worship him.

Legally, Satan possesses the ground in this world.  But Jesus, the Son of Man, knew who He was, and His identity was focused and understood according to His purpose on earth — yet He was a son and He learned obedience by the things He suffered.

Jesus, the son of man, knew Satan had legal rights to the kingdoms of this world because of Adam’s failure.

“Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.  Then saith Jesus unto him, ‘Get thee hence, Satan; for it is written, Thou shalt worship The LORD thy God, and him only shalt thou serve’,”   Matthew 4: 8-10 KJV.

Satan tries so very hard to keep us ignorant and from ever learning the truth:  Jesus Christ imparted All power and all authority to the Church.

We have that power, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead, abides in the believer.

Satan doesn’t want us to know or develop faith in the written Word of God, nor does he want us to pray and develop a relationship with The LORD.

He knows that if we develop that God-given power, we will be unstoppable and he will lose major territory and souls.

Now the enemy isn’t going down easy, so it is in the battles that stretch our faith in God’s Word.

The enemy bombards us with doubt and unbelief to keep us from our inheritance in Christ.  We have this power in earthen vessels with God in our prayer life and also, we learn decrees and declarations by the spoken Word.  The Word is forever settled in heaven.

In this present darkness, a light is shining and it is God’s destiny arising in His Remnant, who carry the legal Power of Attorney given to us by our LORD Jesus Christ who is our advocate, the one who stands in-between accusations the devil tries to serve against us, to keep us bound by lies.

Jesus gave us Power of Attorney to decree.  That gives us the powers and the rights that Jesus has, to act on His Behalf in our ever-increasing territory and in all the world, including harvesting souls for The Kingdom and the financial matters that accomplish it.  God finances His Ministries!

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I AM with you always, even unto the end of the world,”   Matthew 28:18-20 KJV.

Amen.
