When You Go Splat

Beloved, please pray, as I have received a lot of information concerning serious needs in families.

Beloved, please pray, as I have received a lot of information concerning serious needs in families.

The enemy always attempts to use those who are closest to us to distract and hinder us, and rail against us.

“And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household,” Matthew 10:36 KJV.

Many feel like they have been slung into a wall like plaster. *SPLAT* But remember as we are slung into and hit that wall, God is turning it for good because it is building us up and HIS kingdom; the powerful walls of fortification.

We can never reach our potential by resisting the process. Yes, it is hard, yes it breaks us, and takes us making it feel like it hurts us in many ways.

When we look at the ingredients of plaster it can remind us of portions of our lives that are rough, dried up, and messy but beloved, very necessary!

We don’t often see ourselves as messy. However, when we dry and cure in the SON, let us not become hardened through the process and let us not crack under the pressure for we need to become fortified and strong.

“Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness,” Colossians 1:11 KJV.

How many of us feel like we have been slung and suddenly we feel the SPLAT against a wall? We feel like we have gone as far as we can go.

Beloved, we are like that mix of that plaster having within us the binding ingredients of cement. What is amazing is that once dried it makes a protected place in building the Spiritual walls of defense!

Yes, the process is rough and hard at times but remember what it is all for especially those whom we love and we serve in His body.

So if you find yourself out of your comfort zone realize there are reasons both for your growth and others. And remember God has warriors praying for you that you will stand and be that example of strength under pressure!

America: This Case in History

The LORD says, “I will show and open heaven that the world shall know there is a prophet in America. A platform of stability shall rise in the midst of great turmoil.”

Who will stand at this particular time in history, to fast and pray that all hell be stopped from its agenda?

Only God knows the secrets of men’s hearts. He knows when He returns, so the enemy is limited in scope to what he knows. For had the enemy known what would happen with Jesus, he would have never crucified The LORD of Glory!

Satan thought he had won through his plan, but it backfired, causing the Church to grow exponentially!

“Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified The LORD of Glory,” 1 Corinthians 2:8 KJV.

The warfare has been a seasoning fire to many of you, to prepare you “God’s servants” as ministers of flames of fire.

Learning to walk in the fire, is having trouble on every side! Never knowing what will transpire from one day till the next! For it is written… ‘for truly times of refreshing come from the presence of The LORD!’ Acts 3:19.

7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10 always bearing about in the body the dying of The LORD Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you,” 2 Corinthians 4:7-12 KJV.

Hear the Word of The LORD….

“I have seen the level of warfare intended to exacerbate My People to give up and quit in heaviness, fatigue, and despair.

Hear Me! I tell you the truth that you have fought the good fight of faith, but don’t give in to becoming lethargic and overwhelmed due to the coup d’état that is brewing, in attempting to overthrow My servant whom I have chosen.

Had I not hidden My Vessel away who conquered the lion and the bear; had I not taken the lowly vessel that cares for the few sheep to face a national giant; had I not prepared a people hidden in the recesses of My Spirit where I might be in their midst… Selah

I AM bringing forward those who have been chiseled by the rock, yet lowly and humble as a mere lamb.

I have heard their cries so that they might continue to stand to turn away the wickedness from the land. Yes, they have cried and sought My Name and I hear them!

Look up, look up, look up to me! Yes, I hear you, I hear you, My Beloved! Truly times of refreshing come from the presence of The LORD. Find Me in the midst, I AM there and I AM close even as your very breath.

You are the temple of The Holy Spirit! You call to order, you weep between the porch and the altar, you plead to spare the people and give not thy heritage to reproach! You stand for Me….

Surely, I hear the prayers of My People as they rise before Me in heaven and these shall go forth to battle and overrun fortresses and overthrow strongholds.

I shall display My Splendor through them as I shall overthrow those that dare touch My Plan and My Agenda. No man knows My purpose fully, for in Elijah’s day I had kept five thousand hidden who had never bowed their knee to Baal.

For it is a holy time, a time of Holy Convocation. A time to remove your shoes, a time to don a towel to serve, for this is a time like no other and such as will never be seen again.

I will show and open heaven that the world shall know there is a prophet in America. A platform of stability shall rise in the midst of great turmoil.”

Vision:

As I was hearing this, I saw a platform rising from dark foggy clouds beneath like hidden in a swamp and had been hidden for a long time.

The platform is being elevated and it is pure emerald green and shiny like the gem. And then I heard, “New Beginning….

Stand in faith and put no trust in what you see with your natural eye, or hear with your ear but see and hear with your spiritual senses, for I will rise again. My Word is forever settled in heaven, not the media.

The propaganda of the media instills fear and doubt causing the anti-Christ spirits to come forth. Come away beloved it is the time!

Come away and hear what I will say to you!” says The LORD of Hosts!

“Tune the world out and tune in to Me!” says The LORD.

Jonah the prophet came to warn and preach repentance to the city of Nineveh. Having received the prophetic warning of destruction, the king believed Jonah and the king of Nineveh took off his robe proclaimed a fast and covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes.

The king said that maybe God might show mercy and relent of His words.

The people of Nineveh not only heard but, in all seriousness, grasped the message of God and in three days Nineveh repented and received the mercy of God!

The negative prophet Jonah, although running from the Prophetic Word, wanted nothing to do with Nineveh. However, once God corrected him in a great fish’s belly then was deposited on the beach he ran to deliver the message!

However, he had hoped his prophecy of destruction would happen. Jonah failed to understand and realize that the great I AM is also a God of great mercy.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

However, God gave free will to man so he could choose to follow him but the majority of the world doesn’t love The LORD.

For those who love God do what He says. For it is God’s desire that all men be saved but not all will.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” John 3:16 KJV.

The generation of Nineveh, in Jonah’s time, received the prophecy and was completely spared from The Wrath of God — due to their repentance.

God’s Agenda is always souls! God’s Mercy for Jonah and for the souls in Nineveh were completely spared from the wrath of God and the predicted destruction.

God does and God will change His mind — if we respond to him with humility and obedience.

For the case of Nineveh during the prophet Jonah, God saw their works and sincerity and relented and God changed his mind towards that great city and spared them in His great Mercy.

How many chances has God given us?

Will we as the temple of The LORD, will we weep between the porch and the altar and say, “Spare thy people oh God!”?

Will we lay on our face for our wayward nation?

In a later time, Nahum, the prophet was sent by God approximately one hundred and fifty years later, to prophecy to Nineveh of their coming destruction — and it happened — for there was no room for repentance.

Note: Please read and study the Books of Jonah and Nahum.

The Limbo Zone

We all must learn how to let go of anything that is keeping us bound from moving to our future when we are in limbo in the midst of two places.

We all must learn how to let go of anything that is keeping us bound from moving to our future when we are in limbo in the midst of two places.

LIMBO: Definition “noun, plural lim·bos. a place or state of oblivion to which persons or things are regarded as being relegated when casting aside, forgotten, past, or out of date: My youthful hopes are in the limbo of lost dreams. an intermediate, transitional, or midway state or place.”

We must learn to trust God while in limbo, for faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.

When we are blinded and seem to have lost our way, every circle we make in our sheer determination continues to bring us right back to the same exact place.

Why?  God is trying to elevate our thinking and understanding in faith so that we can finally grasp the lesson needed to move forward into the unknown.

We can only proceed after The LORD is finished with our lessons in that dry, frustrating, and confusing state.

Limbo is that place of being where we are tested and tried.  Limbo is the place where we learn from the places of our past and try to measure them up with past victories.

Destiny demands obedience to the plan in the Masters Hand.  Destiny is not the plan of cookie-cutter ministers or ministries that think if they follow a certain pattern that they will have their own copycat movement.

It is so important that we ALONE have our own prayer life and listen and line up with what The LORD is saying measured against God’s WORD Period.  Our pattern is Christ and when we gather together that we all speak the same thing.

Success in God is not necessarily success in earthly and worldly mindsets.  Success is when we face our future having nothing to see or sense is how we learn to properly glean in all situations especially hard ones.

It is those whose lessons go beyond the veil of the Holy Place into the Holy of Holies as we practice prayer, meditation, and intimacy without feeling or sensing anything in the zone of limbo.

God makes sure we won’t go forward until we have advanced learning in the land of limbo.  Even in limbo, we strive in service becoming a place of refreshing pools seeking to give refreshment to others as we have learned to advance our faith in service.

The lessons learned remain and we walk in what we have obtained in faith.  God knows our destiny is tied to our faith and he knows what must happen before we can advance in elevation, much like the Israelites had the destiny of the land of milk and honey.

Don’t think the unknown or future will be the same or familiar.  You may start out with people that you are comfortable with, or a place or belief in what you think will be your purpose.

You started out with fifty people and advanced, but what if your future changes dramatically?

Would you be faithful to one?

Wouldn’t this seem like a demolition instead of a promotion?

However, in the mind and purposes of God what is success and promotion may be vastly different than what the world says.  We must remember God is vast and what the world says is successful may not be a success for you!

“Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.  Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.  They go from strength to strength, everyone of them in Zion appeareth before God,”   Psalm 84:5-7 KJV.

God is very serious with us and may The LORD help us so that we only make it to our destiny and not to abide in the Zone for our final days.  We must be equipped to be able to carry greater, weighty purposes.

We should thank God for keeping us back if we fail to pass the tests.  There is nothing so disheartening to our soul is to have started out right then doing it our way and end up in the same place year after year.

The Israelites saw and experienced personally the power and miraculous parting of the Red Sea.  How can we fathom that a people who experienced such amazing events in a short period would murmur over manna, flesh to eat, and complain over the water?

They continued to look to the past when things were seemingly desolate and not familiar.

The Israelites hadn’t gone this way before yet saw the miracles and experienced the power of God.  It is hard to comprehend that such a people murmured wanting to go back to Egypt for their three-square meals and in the process totally offend God!

When the zone doesn’t look back to what was, because it is not there anymore.  What worked in the past is gone.  What is ahead of us may not be familiar to us because God is doing a new thing!

Had it not been for the grace of God we would be guilty of the same thing!

We tend to lean back because we cannot see the way to go like the past is what is familiar.  It currently may seem like your vision is dead and dry and everything around supports that view.

The Israelites remembered the leeks and onions as they murmured to God and failed to remember the parting of the Red Sea.

God’s Destiny of the Israelites promised them the land of milk in honey.  However, The LORD had another route for the murmurers to go into the Zone of the wilderness.

We too look behind remembering how things for our needs of sustenance was met there and we forget how God provides for our every need and care.

What was behind is dead, as we burned bridges behind us that we had to cross, but now we cannot see clearly the route to take because it is a walk of faith.

The Israelites faced a place called limbo because they wanted to return to Egypt when they were hungry and thirsty.  Didn’t we have enough food and drink in Egypt?

Is your destiny like theirs?  Are these the new places calling you out as pioneers to take us into lands and places of destiny in which we have never seen.

We must not compare everything that worked in the past to be the same.

God wants to break off everything, every distraction, every hindrance, person, place, or thing that has us stuck in limbo.

What is hard about limbo?  We only have limited knowledge that we lived before and we are not that person anymore.

We feel stuck but beloved let us not get weary in well-doing or faint in our minds for soon, if we believe, God will open that new place and you shall enter by His goodness and grace!

Study: Numbers chapter 11

Untamed Steed

Thinketh thee can handle one as Spirited and wild as an untamed steed left to her fancy?  I think she be much for the Master to handle. 

 

Dearest Lord,

Thinketh thee can handle one as Spirited and wild as an untamed steed left to her fancy?  I think she be much for the Master to handle.

Does thou think ye can handle one as this?  In many more ways than one, I do believe the time has come.  Indeed her season and set time has come…..

She runs wild and free with the wind in her mane kicking up as she whinnies away….  Head proudly in the air sniffing for the scent of danger….

Yet she is always aware as she fares.  In her heart she stays within sight at all times of day and night.  For many have tried to capture and break her and dare mount her…..

Her spirit hath broke many a back and bone and it will take a special Son of Man to know and to trust his living soul and spirit to get to know….

Yet once this steed be nurtured and trust … nary have to break her…  but know her and become one with her….  And as she allows HIM to mount with her then shall thou become one with the winds……

“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.  Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee,”     Psalm 32:8-9 KJV.
