A Spontaneous Word of Prophecy

I keep hearing, “Stay on target!  Stay on target!  Keep your focus on Me!” says The LORD.

I keep hearing, “Stay on target!  Stay on target!  Keep your focus on Me!” says The LORD, “Do not look to the left or right or look at the waves and so much that frightens you!”

“Fear not and keep your eyes set upon Me!” says The LORD of Hosts!

“Do not focus or seek after the depths of Satan or his plans, for the more you focus on those things the more it will begin to take hold and poison your thoughts, so they will become strong holds in your mind.

I have NOT given you a spirit of fear, but of Power, of Love, and of a Sound Mind!

You let garbage in, and you get garbage out.  Take captive every thought to the obedience of Christ.

Seek ME and live,” says The LORD, “and I will tell you all you need to know about Satan and his strategies.

You don’t study Satan’s plan to play his game.  Know My strategy, for I will make you divinely victorious!

When you hear Me, realize I see the beginning till the end.  Satan has no goods on you unless you have given him legal right to be about your life.

Seek ME and live!  Live above not beneath, you are the head and not the tail, you are above all these lying propaganda efforts designed to intimidate you by Satan to sidetrack and take you out of the battle and your journey to victory!

Don’t listen or read things just because people send it or it is in front of your eyes.  Set no evil thing before thy face.  Set thy face upon Me, and look into the perfect law of liberty.

The enemy wants to knock you off your steadfastness in Me.  Look at what builds not what tears down.  I AM not leading you into victory to tear you down!  The evil one wants you not to trust My goodness in the land of the living.

Come away with Me and let Me minister Peace, Hope, and Love in the midst of the storms.  Think on things that are pure, lovely, and of a Good Report.

I know everything, and I know who you are.  I’ve kept you as you surrender and flow with Me.  I AM not keeping things from you.

Don’t doubt My care for you.  Give up this mistaken tone of distrust and fear, for I AM your exceeding great reward!  I AM all you need!

When you spend your existence giving so much time to focusing on the things of this world you fail to keep Me first, you play right into the hand of the enemy.

In every battle it’s the same.  The enemy always attacks the mind.  The mind is where it begins for it is the means of communication.

The enemy is able to get access through the gates of the mind through the eyes, ears, body language, and all senses.

Repent and turn away from all the distractions of this day.  Realize what has happened, forgive yourself and dust yourself off!

Get back into alignment with MY Word in Faith confidently knowing that you have a total provision in all realms.

I have the goods!  I AM your exceeding great reward My Beloved.  Selah…”

“Finally, 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,”   Philippians 4:8.

“And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.  For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil,”   Ecclesiastes 12:12-14.

Remedy to a Sick Heart

Where you are truly loved and truly needed, you are to be received and treated as a gift from God.

Where you are truly loved and truly needed, you are to be received and treated as a gift from God.

A gift from God is to be treasured and nurtured so that it will grow in the soil of forgiveness and acceptance.  No relationship can survive betrayal, lies, and deceit.

Secrecy, lies, and pretense is a slippery slope that destroys trust and lives.  If there is no trust there is nothing to hold the relationship together.

For where there is strife and contention there is every evil work.  When jealousy and envy come it calls to itself division and a house divided against itself it shall not stand.

Pretty much after these things have ransacked the relationship it won’t survive unless both parties seek deep counsel and are ready to work together and when one won’t do the work it prolongs the inevitable, it won’t survive.

If you are the faithful believer in Christ and you have done all the work and continue beating yourself up in condemnation and guilt, it is misplaced.

You must forgive yourself first and forgive the person.  Part of being able to forgive is that we must love your neighbor as yourself.  Loving self is hard to do if you are down on yourself with blame and shame.

You cannot make someone love you or love God.  We are not God or The Holy Ghost. Conviction can only come by The Holy Ghost not you.  After doing all to stand, you stood.

However, after a long time, you found yourself slipping and backsliding and you found yourself regressing from your destiny and steadfastness in Christ.

You follow God and take back everything the devil stole from you. However, man has a free will to choose and you won’t be able to interfere in that.

There are things God can’t do.  He cannot lie and he won’t take our free choice or free will away.

God can’t even answer a prayer that goes against the person’s free will.  The only thing left is to forgive them and let them go.

You can become so spiritually sick, when you hang on to a dead situation, especially when the situation is taking you down in the process.

Hope deferred makes a heartsick.  Forgive yourself, forgive them and let them go.

Rizpah was a mother of two sons who were hanged and when she found them she stayed there with her two dead sons from the days of harvest, not allowing any wild beast or birds to land on them, and she tried to make her sons live!

But she was out of her rational mind, yet she was a mother guarding the bones of her sons just hanging there, for she would not leave them.

You can get spiritually and physically sick when we hang on to dead situations.  Are we like Rizphah?

Do we have situations that are not working and you have tried to keep them alive for a very long time?

Sometimes it is hard to let go and move into closure and be healed.

“But the king took the two sons of Rizpah the daughter of Aiah, whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth; and the five sons of Michal the daughter of Saul, whom she brought up for Adriel the son of Barzillai the Meholathite: and he delivered them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the hill before the LORD: and they fell all seven together, and were put to death in the days of harvest, in the first days, in the beginning of barley harvest.
And Rizpah the daughter of Aiah took sackcloth, and spread it for her upon the rock, from the beginning of harvest until water dropped upon them out of heaven, and suffered neither the birds of the air to rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field by night,”   
2 Samuel 21:8-10 KJV.

When you have done all you know to do, there comes a time when God will sever the baggage and bondage you are under.

Dust your feet, change directions, and move into the pathway of destiny.  Move out of spiritual abuse into freedom in Christ!

To those who are being elevated by God, just realize people will be envious and jealous of the favor of God on your life; even in our own homes.

Those who are insecure will seek to hold on to you and convince you how wrong you are to obey God.

In their own estimation, they compare themselves among themselves.  Everyone has their own gifts and anointing, why try to compare yourself and mirror your image to a person?

Let go, beloved of God, let it go, let it go, and move into exactly the location God has for you.

It all starts with our personal relationship with God.  There is a major work in secret.

We are to work on our own relationship with God.  God will do all the advancing as He is the author and finisher of our faith.  He sees your determination and obedience and He will reward you openly.

The Heart Of The Father

I hear The LORD say,  “Keep your eyes upon Me and don’t be weakened, for you are sealing the breeches through your work….”

The enemy has come to accuse you of rebellion to make you afraid.

This has come to provoke you to stop the building and to keep you vexed and alarmed causing your focus to be upon self with insecurity and fear.

But I hear The LORD say,  “Keep your eyes upon Me and don’t be weakened, for you are sealing the breeches through your work and you are making sheepfolds that shall keep My Sheep protected.

The enemy has brought evil reports, intimidation, and distractions to steal your focus.  Their attempt is to curse you and your labor in building The Kingdom of God.

Come away, come away My beloved, let us take the foxes, the little foxes that have come to destroy the vine and I AM not talking about the furry kind.

These are deceivers who say they love Me and you yet they are false deceivers attempting to spoil you.

Do not fear, for I know your going in and coming out, regardless of how it feels, press through and you shall fully know them by their fruits.

Those who have need to know and proof, soon all will know this is the work of God.  Many have been stretched out too thin and others who seek to gain from you and glean, are users hoping what you have will rub off on them.

You know who you are and you know your life, don’t let their opinions pull you away from your steadfast love and determination.  Trust Me and pull away from those who have caused you to be spread too thin.

Cast out the users, those who only seek to gain from using you.  Shake it off!

You are on full momentum toward the prize of the high calling in Christ, the enemy will come to criticize introducing a new reason to be offended.

But realize it is all about gaining control and manipulation.  Progress into My Purpose taking new ground will always bring those who believe, however there will also be those who come with twisted motives to confuse and criticize using the scriptures to defend their stance.

Give no place even for a moment even if they mope in rejection seeking to stay.  Stand for the truth and keep your focus on Me and they will leave,” says The LORD.

Seek and study the heart of God and give yourself wholly to His Will.  God’s Heart is always to impact generations for The Gospel.  Fear no man but let the fear of The LORD always be preeminent, for this is wisdom.

That seed God placed in you will grow and will need cultivation once it breaks ground. That is when the tender shoot comes forth and is most vulnerable.

Guard your heart for out of it come the issues of life.  Guard so that nothing will stomp your ground.  Be wise, these deceitful elements know what they are doing, and they are without innocence.

In jealousy they watch for any opening to place their agenda above yours causing confusion.  They make it sound as right causes however just because there is a need doesn’t mean you fill it.

The poor you will always have among you, but keeping God first takes spiritual fortitude and learning to say NO!

Concerning distractions and hindrances; just because it’s a duck, acts like a duck, walks like a duck doesn’t mean it’s a duck.  There are decoys and they look just like a duck until you see them up close.

It is the same way with the wheat and the tares, you can’t tell them apart until right before the harvest, for the weight of the wheat kernels cause them to bow over and the tares stay up.

God tells us not to uproot the tares lest we uproot the wheat also.

It is time consuming and negative to fight against denominations or various teachings that always major on what is wrong with them.

However, in witnessing this thing,  I have found these become so negative and they forget to rightly see all that is wrong with themselves!

Ask yourself when you witness these things in others; What is the heart of the Father?

God desires souls to be saved but when we are given to judging over God’s people and fault finding in what we see as false teaching and judgmentalism we will reap what we sow.

When we focus on all that is wrong with others we lose godly perspective and fail to see ourselves.

Promoting the bad and leaving off promoting the gospel message won’t save souls, it actually causes a religious spirit to take over like they did when Jesus walked the earth. Religious spirits major on the minor and leave the cross out of the mix.

When it is God’s time at the harvest the angels will do the separating.  I have never been in a perfect Church or Ministry and I imagine you can say the same.  No one is getting away with nothing!

God knows it all.  Can we say we are perfect?

Then why do we demand perfection in others?

I chose to focus on the message of the gospel and I let the Holy Spirit do the convicting and changing.

It is so easy to become a Religious Pharisee when we become negative and turn away our message from the cross into a list of do’s and don’ts.

Religious spirits becoming rigid, prideful, arrogant who make it their mission to tell people they are going to hell! When a person doesn’t follow their agenda of rules and regulations it makes you self-conscious instead of God conscious.  Who can be perfect enough to measure self to a religious Pharisee?

I chose to address the positive providing hope to a sin sick world.  Jesus wept over Jerusalem for the condition of the temple how the religious turned the people away.

None of us are perfect, yet with religious spirits you can never be good enough.  None of us are good enough that is why Jesus came as the son of Man, to live as a perfect man on purpose. He gave His life as our perfect sacrifice so that we would receive Him as Lord.

In our flesh we will never be perfect enough!  When we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we receive his perfect sacrifice and become His righteousness.

We are then covered by Jesus.  God doesn’t see us because we are covered by His righteousness. He made us right.

You see at one moment in time Christ hung on that tree and forever changed our destiny!  We are now accepted in the beloved because at one moment Christ did it all!  Amazing huh?

Just like it was back then, the people left the city to find Jesus; as many do today . People are hungry for the truth but many find themselves measured and judged by a false belief system.

Many have been rejected from the pulpit and cast out from various churches and denominations due to religious bondage.

But do you see? This is the good news!  They left religion and seek out the real message of truth.

God is concerned for all the lost sheep with no shepherd.  May we all begin to measure our own heart and ways and give no more heed or room to religious spirits!

Amen?

“For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them,”   Matthew 13:15 KJV .

26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. 27 So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” ’ ”   Matthew 13:26-30 NKJV.

13 “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. 14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.
15 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
16 “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obliged to perform it.’ 17 Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold? 18 And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, he is obliged to perform it.’ 19 Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift? 20 Therefore he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by all things on it. 21 He who swears by the temple, swears by it and by Him who dwells in it. 22 And he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by Him who sits on it.
23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. 24 Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, 30 and say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’
31 “Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt. 33 Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? 34 Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, 35 that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36 Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.
37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! 38 See! Your house is left to you desolate,”
   Matthew 23:13-38 NKJV.

Prophetic Forecast: Get Hungry and Stay Hungry

The LORD says, “I AM not finished.  I The LORD have much to showcase and demonstrate to the nation and the world!”

Beloved of God, we have only just begun to witness the revelatory cast that has set forth concerning the divine curtain call; all in array built upon the foundations of the apostles, and prophets with Jesus Christ being the Chief Cornerstone.

The Church shall be arrayed in all her Glory and splendor for the Spirit and the Bride says come.

For you shall be ready in the day of His power.  Holy Spirit power is at hand as you have been prepared for such a time.

There is a sovereign time line that in the fullness of time such things will be settled and solid on call and perfect in timing.  For in such a time God will display His Bride for she has made herself ready.

Who hears His Words? 

Who says they are prophets?

What has light got to do with darkness?

For thus say The LORD, ”For I have prepared My Voice in the wilderness; yea even those who have walked alone had little or no support from man to deliver them of man’s opinion. In times of trouble they cried out to me not realizing they have My undivided attention.

Many years of preparation were not in vain, for I hewn down and my vessels were fit for the fire of the refinement while in such lonely, isolated, desolate places.

Many haven’t heard or heeded YET… but there is a set time coming upon My weary ones.

You shall behold that I AM leading out My chiseled ones out of the wilderness leaning on her beloved.

These shall not be moved by the fear of man or by popularity or pomp and circumstances.  My prophets shall not mince words nor compete or compare themselves for the fear of man shall be squeezed out of them in heated fashion.

These whom I AM leading out of hiding, whose coming was foretold that from the wilderness shall stand before Me a people in righteousness with such levels of uncharted faith having qualifications of such strong stability and absolute peace and purpose without upset.

For those who dare criticize them will answer for their foolishness.  For from the days of proving comes great confidence in their God!

I AM not finished.  I The LORD have much to showcase and demonstrate to the nation and the world!

Even with all the fury of the multitude of predictors, sooth sayers yes even in those in The Church saying this is the timing and you need to do what I say and act right now!

Be not afraid of their words and false visions and their manifestations, and be not afraid of them for I will humble them and cause their own words to chasten them.

For whoever digs a pit for the righteous himself shall fall into it.  Touch not God’s anointed and do his prophets no harm.

I AM is patiently waiting for the glory of the latter house being much greater than the former and that I will showcase My bride in full attire nothing missing nothing lacking.

Stay on target beloved and don’t get worried about all the news and those of misguided Christians with whips and chains seeking to tame the lion!!  The lion will not be tamed but shall ROAR out of Zion!

Have total peace and let none of this move you or make you nervous.  People will run to and fro saying He is there or He is here and people are crazy and hazy even among Christians……”

Know that God has a lot more to do, regardless of what the false predictors say.

I am so settled within and know that God knows me and understands how I tick.  He has me on His time piece and compass and there is much more to happen to bring great glory to God and to the nation and the world!

God is not done with Trump and America there must be national revival on the heels of great repentance for,

“if My people who are called by My name shall humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked way, then will I hear from heaven forgive their sin and heal their land.”

We are not there yet — but we have entered a time frame where nothing shall be the same anymore.

God is setting up The Remnant Bride, and releasing true prophets to give clear meaning and consistency and those who presume and predict falsely will be ashamed of their pride and assumptions.

This isn’t the time to worry or fret about any of this, just continue to find him in the secret place and let peace and assurance be your guide.

Those who are connected to The LORD’s heart will never be ashamed.  Let peace rule in your heart and in the midst of the fury of man and fear, beloved watch and pray.

“Finally, 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,”    Philippians 4:8 KJV.

“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of The LORD.  Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of The LORD draweth nigh.

Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door. Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of The LORD, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience,”   James 5:7-10 KJV.

“Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come,”   Psalm 102:13 KJV.

“To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to The Kingdom of God,”   Acts 1:3 KJV.

God is never early or late.  His chosen witnesses shall know by invitation as He hand-picked the saints to demonstrate His proof for he is a righteous God…

The excitement will wane if they miss the hour of His visitation… stay hungry beloved, STAY Hungry.

There will be those who shall watch heaven come to earth and HIS people and the world shall witness the greatest hour of all ages!

Amen and Amen!

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

Is Your Tire Flat?

Sometimes we have got to pull away from everything and everyone, because of the pull of this world to gain control over us.

 

Sometimes we have got to pull away from everything and everyone, because of the pull of this world to gain control over us.

We all have all sorts of distractions vying for our attention, and in many instances, they are important and are needed, but there are things we must do or we face consequences.

The most important part of our day is to pray and begin our day with The LORD, for if we don’t, we will find ourselves in so many situations, needs, and before you know it, we haven’t had any time with The LORD.

We must take time with God not make time!

As we become determined to keep God first every day and diligently take time, we will have The Holy Spirit leading, guiding, and directing our pathway into God’s Will.

Part of God’s purpose is that we learn how to put to death the deeds of the flesh to grow thereby.

When the WORD of The LORD came among us, He came to live and die showing us where HIS power lies.  Paul knew The LORD’s Passion and understood the price he had to pay to say, “I die daily,” (1 Corinthians 15:31)

When we get off track and try to make time for God, by the end of the day we find we had no time to sit before The LORD.

Satan especially fights our quiet intimate time with our Bridegroom.  He knows once we see the power and the ability of God in us, he will lose ground and we will take the spoils of victory!

Developing our quiet time with God is first!  When we understand and get the revelation that what we have in us is so much greater than all of Satan’s plans because what we have in us is so powerful that Satan sends legions after legions of his demons to fight against you!

This is much like it was when Elisha and his servant were surrounded by the armies of the king to stop the Word.  Beloved of God, when you carry the Word, you are accompanied by many Angels.

When God wants to speak to us, He will do it regardless of whatever circumstances we find ourselves in. (2 Kings 6:12)  We serve a God who shows us the plans of the enemy, even in his own bedchamber!

The enemy knows if we ever find out just how powerful our Prayer is with God, he will know his plans are destroyed!  He may have planned one purpose against you for weeks or years!  Then, in one moment — it is revealed and destroyed!

Satan has lost ground with you and all the plans he had to bring destruction are thwarted.  You cannot curse who God has blessed.

He knows when we find out who we are in Christ, we will be unstoppable!  So beloved, the enemy is always trying to throw a wrench in our wheel.

Your tire maybe flat, but it is designed to be round and take us places, but will we pull in and receive the life source…Zoe, God’s kind of life and keep on going?

The LORD watches this world — especially our world — and He understand the fight or flight motivation we find ourselves in.  Just as Jesus died to his flesh, life and purpose, so we too must die daily to our flesh and the deeds of the flesh.

I cannot say the battles cease in all cases, but I do say HE is so worth every pain and heartache we endure!

Daily learning how to walk out our lives daily as we abide closely to The LORD, is so much greater than we can ever imagine or experience in this life.

God is vast and His Kingdom beyond time.  None of us have it all, but we are like parts to a vast puzzle.

As we yield to becoming “fit” for the Master’s Use, our purpose will come together with others of like heart, mind, and spirit because now instead of seeing our own part, we begin to see the other’s purpose as we connect and see the vision!

Yes, it is exciting to get glimpses of God’s vision, especially in these end times!

In this temporal life as a Christian, there are others who are watching us see what we do.  But though we feel alone, we are not alone.

God sees, Angels see, demons see, and there are people who are interested in our lives, whether a brother, a friend, your dad or mom, people are watching what we practice preaching with our life styles.

Whom do we represent?

“For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.  Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.  I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.  For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.  So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin,”   
Romans 7:20-25 KJV.

All Pretense is Gone; Holiness is Right

The LORD asks, “Are you so interested in being built up to gain some lofty high place and title of man’s pride, arrogance, and achievement?”

“Are you so interested in being built up to gain some lofty high place and title of man’s pride, arrogance, and achievement?

Haven’t you been warned as Jehoshaphat was in making alliances that were not according to My alliance for you?

There are those who are up and coming; “pseudo ministers” and they bring with them a gospel that appeals to the flesh of man.

Don’t be sucked into their webs of deceit, by false humility, flattery or making leagues or alliances with those whom I did not choose.

Being an ally is to unite plans together, committing resources with another for mutual benefit instead of depending on Me,” says The LORD.

“Many alliances come and go to their conquest without My Permission.

Know those that labor among you.  You are known by the company you keep.  Birds of a feather flock together.

Yes, they want what you carry but they don’t know your story or the price those insignia represent of My Power, Authority, and Glory. 

I will share My glory with nobody,” says The LORD!

“There are others like Simon the sorcerer.  He saw the anointing manifest and wanted to buy it!”

9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: 10 to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.
11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.
12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.
14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15 who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of The LORD Jesus.)
17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,
19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
24 Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to The LORD for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me,”   Acts 8:9-24 KJV.

“When men glory among themselves and seek to prostitute your gifts or to be known by another’s character, they are really seeking the fleshly power of your blessing without spending the years of training in seeking My Presence, Power, and Anointing!

These deceivers attempt to change the map so that they will arrive at the set time so all will see how powerful these men are.

There are many who think the anointing, holiness, and gifts rubs off of another servant and have NO idea what it costs.  And the process has taken hard times of preparation and it is not easy.”

God wants YOU! 

He wants you to know Him in intimacy in the secret place of His power that only comes from our Love relationship and walk with The LORD.

This life is all about knowing Him and becoming one with Him!

When you really know Him, and love Him, yes it may not be an easy road but you will find that things don’t appeal or matter much anymore and you will find a freedom that comes and that it will become easier to lighting the load you were carrying and becoming free to be and do as you are becoming all that you are destined to do and be in Him.

Man left to himself is destined to fail and fall.  You can’t be the teacher before you become the student.

Discipleship takes discipline and it takes effort but the effort is in developing Christ in us the hope of our calling.  Just look at the temporal and worldly ways that are called the Churches.

Holiness is right but if the founder of that place doesn’t follow holiness, repent, and follow God how can anyone else follow God.

Paul said, “Follow me as I follow Christ.”  We are not to follow blindly.  If the devil and sin aren’t confronted you will find there are more demons in religious houses than there are Christians.

If you had to leave, be happy!  God has the real deal for you!  Remember the church is the body of Christ in this world, not all the buildings that have church written on them with their stain-glass windows and steeples.

Everyone battles to reach some sort of effort but in Christ, our reach is to become like HIM.  Unless we are fully founded on Christ’s righteousness we will never be good enough.

Why?  We receive a lie that says we must climb this mountain the way the others are doing it.  But in time you keep going and spinning until you finally fail and fall from those pinnacles of success and of religion — which is good news!

At the time it doesn’t feel good but as we mature in Christ he sets us free and we understand more.  We must have relationship and intimacy as we learn to abide in Christ that totally removes us from that Church concept that is built by the plans and strategies of man; built on who can top this attitude.

The Church was never to turn us into religion it was birthed after our great Savior’s sacrifice to set us free, so we can be the Church!

It is vitally important to teach us to know Jesus is our ultimate goal!  To know him and the fellowship of His sufferings being conformed unto death.

We can’t help to affect a place until we face a place called silence.  God is able to bring us down so that we will look up again to Him.

Becoming silent is a weapon against the enemy also people are being used by the enemy.  Holding our tongue or biting it when there is a war waged against us is actually winning!

Though the winds of adversity come and you are troubled on every side… though tossed to and fro by every wind and doctrine, there is a rainbow coming to begin again.

However, it seems like we will never come out of these foreboding winds and demonic clouds that bring deception and every rouge wind that appeals to the love of self and selfish ambitions.

It is not going to the best schools or the ones that have all the accolades.  God chose the foolish things of this world to confound the so-called wise.

What God delights in that we develop the love of God above ALL things of this world.

God is more real than the things of this life and one day those who love God and His appearing will step over to that place where we enter our perpetual peace and sweet relief with Jesus forever!

Silence is a test and trial as to what we will do.  Remember that severe storms come with an eye that spins.

Let us find the place in the eye of the Father and He loves us so much and to call us the apple of His eye as he gazes at you!  Remember how important you are to him and how much he loves you!
