Back to the FUTURE

Today is the 30th. It represents the BLOOD of Christ and dedication. It is the month of MARCH. Which is the 3rd month of the calender year. It is the GLORY month. What is the opposite of Glory? Consider this because it is important. When researching this topic, was led to the antonyms of this word, Glory. They are insignificance, ugliness, criticism, blame, and condemnation. Many other words are given to describe the opposite, but the point is simple. Are any of these things positive? Are any of them holy? The answer is NO.

The title for this post came from prayer time about what should be. We were crying out to GOD on behalf of ALL of HIS kids. This includes those who have rebelled from HIM and turned away. They have left HIS holy bed and home and chosen to bunk with the enemy. Yet, GOD wants the divorce NOT to be with man, but with the devil. He hates divorce in a holy marriage. He wants holy unity.

This particular entry is going to be very vulnerable. I cannot say that in my flesh, the first reaction was JOY at the thought of it. But, GOD impressed upon us the NEED that is VERY deep for HIS truth to be spoken by HIS kids. For it is HE who is the speaker. It is GOD alone who gets the FULL Glory. We will share about many attacks, but the enemy gets none of the credit for anything. Even the stuff that could be devastating, and at times was did not DESTROY. Why is this so? IT is because GOD said NO, my children will NOT be defeated. He reminded us then, and NOW that the enemy is the enemy. The spouse we marry is NOT our enemy, our children are NOT our enemies, there is one enemy and it is satan.

In the movie back to the future, it showcases a mixed up teen. He is not an awful kid. I would say, pretty normal as far as “normal” goes. The family was fairly typical. It was full of dysfunction. These days, whose is not? But, here is the point. An adventure, whether someone sees it as holy or not, changed HIS Life.

I am fairly certain that my husband and I married too quickly. We knew God wanted us together, but we were terrified of the judgement of just dating when I had a baby coming. In fact, one that was NOT officially his. My husband and I then were very bound up by our wounds. We were so terrified of everything. Most of ALL we feared disappointing GOD. Yet, as time went on, we began to get revelation that God would be pleased. His JOY comes when we come before HIM repenting of our pain, hurt, sin, etc…and surrender it ALL.

Little by little, we began to slowly get insights. David and I came into our marriage broken, needing healing, and really confined by guilt. The interesting thing is, even that guilt died on a cross in Calvary. In a church recently, doe not matter which one, we were told that only spiritual sins died on a cross with Jesus. Yet, even THAT statement defiles the word of GOD. We fight not against flesh and blood, yet we have been trained to by the world. GOD in us should be fighting against spirits.

Start praising GOD, and see what happens. At first it feels like pulling teeth. Because every time we praise GOD it’s like punching the enemy in the mouth. We have as a whole spent LOTS of time dwelling on our past. So much so, that we often cannot appreciate the present as the gift it is. There are many futuristic things that are coming. Many will see it as exciting, and in some ways it will be. In other ways it will feel horrendous at times.

In revelation it describes our future. It also describes the future of those who REBEL against and HATE God. To say the latter is bleak would not be descriptive enough. Let’s look at the word and see what it says.

Psalm 37

Amplified Bible (AMP)

Psalm 37

[A Psalm] of David.

1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers, neither be envious against those who work unrighteousness (that which is not upright or in right standing with God).

2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

3 Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed.

4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.

6 And He will make your uprightness and right standing with God go forth as the light, and your justiceand right as [the shining sun of] the noonday.

7 Be still and rest in the Lord; wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him; fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass.

8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath; fret not yourself—it tends only to evildoing.

9 For evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait and hope and look for the Lord [in the end] shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while, and the evildoers will be no more; though you look with care where they used to be, they will not be found.

11 But the meek [in the end] shall inherit the earth and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked plot against the [uncompromisingly] righteous (the upright in right standing with God); they gnash at them with their teeth.

13 The Lord laughs at [the wicked], for He sees that their own day [of defeat] is coming.

14 The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows to cast down the poor and needy, to slay those who walk uprightly (blameless in conduct and in conversation).

15 The swords [of the wicked] shall enter their own hearts, and their bows shall be broken.

16 Better is the little that the [uncompromisingly] righteous have than the abundance [of possessions] of many who are wrong and wicked.

17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the Lord upholds the [consistently] righteous.

18 The Lord knows the days of the upright and blameless, and their heritage will abide forever.

19 They shall not be put to shame in the time of evil; and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs [that is consumed in smoke] and as the glory of the pastures. They shall vanish; like smoke shall they consume away.

21 The wicked borrow and pay not again [for they may be unable], but the [uncompromisingly] righteous deal kindly and give [for they are able].

22 For such as are blessed of God shall [in the end] inherit the earth, but they that are cursed of Him shall be cut off.

23 The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].

24 Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support andupholds him.

25 I have been young and now am old, yet have I not seen the [uncompromisingly] righteous forsaken or their seed begging bread.

26 All day long they are merciful and deal graciously; they lend, and their offspring are blessed.

27 Depart from evil and do good; and you will dwell forever [securely].

28 For the Lord delights in justice and forsakes not His saints; they are preserved forever, but the offspring of the wicked [in time] shall be cut off.

29 [Then] the [consistently] righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever.

30 The mouth of the [uncompromisingly] righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks with justice.

31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

32 The wicked lie in wait for the [uncompromisingly] righteous and seek to put them to death.

33 The Lord will not leave them in their hands, or [suffer them to] condemn them when they are judged.

34 Wait for and expect the Lord and keep and heed His way, and He will exalt you to inherit the land; [in the end] when the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.

35 I have seen a wicked man in great power and spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil,

36 Yet he passed away, and behold, he was not; yes, I sought and inquired for him, but he could not be found.

37 Mark the blameless man and behold the upright, for there is a happy end for the man of peace.

38 As for transgressors, they shall be destroyed together; in the end the wicked shall be cut off.

39 But the salvation of the [consistently] righteous is of the Lord; He is their Refuge and secure Stronghold in the time of trouble.

40 And the Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they trust and take refuge in Him.

We spoke of my husband and I “jumping the gun” and getting married so quickly. But, what we now know is GOD blessed it, when it was surrendered to HIM. We were engaged on a holiday the enemy celebrates, and married on 3 days later. Life was never simple, yet  there were times it seemed simple. God’s mercy and GRACE was very present. Yet, sometimes our wounds caused us to be blinded to this.

In 2006 we married. Our child that God gave us was always under fire from something. David was diagnosed at 21 with cancer, then healed but not delivered. Later at age 35 familiar spirits mimicking the cancer began attacking. It was a horrific time for us. Everyone seemed to want my husband to have surgery. Yet, adamantly GOD kept saying NO. In the time that my husband was healing, he was also still being attacked by spirits of lust, perversion and pornography. Which in actuality means, ALL of us were.  There were LEGIONS of spirits trying to kill us. In fact, would now say they were hunting us. The enemy does not stop, but NEITHER does GOD. The LORD will ALWAYS overcome.

In this time that ALL of this was brewing and cultivating from HELL, many things took place. My husband worked 80 hours a week. But that later changed. At that time, there was major neglect of the marriage. I justified emotionally leaving my spouse. I had an affair with someone I had been involved with previously. My husband worshiped work. It became his GOD temporarily, and money. But, when I came to him and confessed what happened, God showed mercy. My husband said, “This is on BOTH of us.” It was then that I knew that God ordained this. I was so ashamed. But God used my husband to forgive me.

The enemy kept trying. Just 2 years later our daughter who was then 3 1/2 was diagnosed with a critical illness. She passed 3 months ago. Even though she did, have such peace in her journey and ours. GOD has been and will always BE faithful still. She, our holy angel in disguise, we know was needed so much more elsewhere.

Hebrews 11

Amplified Bible (AMP)

11 Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, [a]the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].

2 For by [faith—[b]trust and holy fervor born of faith] the men of old had divine testimony borne to them and obtained a good report.

3 By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible.

4 [Prompted, actuated] by faith Abel brought God a better and more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, because of which it was testified of him that he was righteous [that he was upright and in right standing with God], and God bore witness by accepting and acknowledging his gifts. And though he died, yet [through the incident] he is still speaking.

5 Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found, because God had translated him. For even before he was taken to heaven, he received testimony [still on record] that he had pleased and been satisfactory to God.

6 But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestlyand diligently seek Him [out].

7 [Prompted] by faith Noah, being forewarned by God concerning events of which as yet there was no visible sign, took heed and diligently and reverently constructed and prepared an ark for the deliverance of his own family. By this [his faith which relied on God] he passed judgment andsentence on the world’s unbelief and became an heir and possessor of righteousness ([c]that relation of being right into which God puts the person who has faith).

8 [Urged on] by faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and went forth to a place which he was destined to receive as an inheritance; and he went, although he did not know or trouble his mind about where he was to go.

9 [Prompted] by faith he dwelt as a temporary resident in the land which was designated in the promise [of God, though he was like a stranger] in a strange country, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs with him of the same promise.

10 For he was [waiting expectantly and confidently] looking forward to the city which has fixed andfirm foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God.

11 Because of faith also Sarah herself received physical power to conceive a child, even when she was long past the age for it, because she considered [God] Who had given her the promise to be reliableand trustworthy and true to His word.

12 So from one man, though he was physically as good as dead, there have sprung descendants whose number is as the stars of heaven and as countless as the innumerable sands on the seashore.

13 These people all died controlled and sustained by their faith, but not having received the tangible fulfillment of [God’s] promises, only having seen it and greeted it from a great distance by faith, and all the while acknowledging and confessing that they were strangers and temporary residents andexiles upon the earth.

14 Now those people who talk as they did show plainly that they are in search of a fatherland (their own country).

15 If they had been thinking with [homesick] remembrance of that country from which they were emigrants, they would have found constant opportunity to return to it.

16 But the truth is that they were yearning for and aspiring to a better and more desirable country, that is, a heavenly [one]. For that reason God is not ashamed to be called their God [even to be surnamed their God—the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob], for He has prepared a city for them.

17 By faith Abraham, when he was put to the test [while the testing of his faith was [d]still in progress], [e]had already brought Isaac for an offering; he who had gladly received and welcomed [God’s] promises was ready to sacrifice his only son,

18 Of whom it was said, Through Isaac shall your descendants be reckoned.

19 For he reasoned that God was able to raise [him] up even from among the dead. Indeed in the sense that Isaac was figuratively dead [potentially sacrificed], he did [actually] receive him back from the dead.

20 [With eyes of] faith Isaac, looking far into the future, invoked blessings upon Jacob and Esau.

21 [Prompted] by faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of Joseph’s sons and bowed in prayer over the top of his staff.

22 [Actuated] by faith Joseph, when nearing the end of his life, referred to [the promise of God for] the departure of the Israelites out of Egypt and gave instructions concerning the burial of his own bones.

23 [Prompted] by faith Moses, after his birth, was kept concealed for three months by his parents, because they saw how comely the child was; and they were not overawed and terrified by the king’s decree.

24 [Aroused] by faith Moses, when he had grown to maturity and [f]become great, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter,

25 Because he preferred to share the oppression [suffer the hardships] and bear the shame of the people of God rather than to have the fleeting enjoyment of a sinful life.

26 He considered the contempt and abuse and shame [borne for] the Christ (the Messiah Who was to come) to be greater wealth than all the treasures of Egypt, for he looked forward and away to the reward (recompense).

27 [Motivated] by faith he left Egypt behind him, being unawed and undismayed by the wrath of the king; for he never flinched but held staunchly to his purpose and endured steadfastly as one who gazed on Him Who is invisible.

28 By faith (simple trust and confidence in God) he instituted and carried out the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood [on the doorposts], so that the destroyer of the firstborn (the angel) might not touch those [of the children of Israel].

29 [Urged on] by faith the people crossed the Red Sea as [though] on dry land, but when the Egyptians tried to do the same thing they were swallowed up [by the sea].

30 Because of faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encompassed for seven days [by the Israelites].

31 [Prompted] by faith Rahab the prostitute was not destroyed along with those who refused to believe and obey, because she had received the spies in peace [without enmity].

32 And what shall I say further? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets,

33 Who by [the help of] faith subdued kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promised blessings, closed the mouths of lions,

34 Extinguished the power of raging fire, escaped the devourings of the sword, out of frailty andweakness won strength and became stalwart, even mighty and resistless in battle, routing alien hosts.

35 [Some] women received again their dead by a resurrection. Others were tortured [g]to death with clubs, refusing to accept release [offered on the terms of denying their faith], so that they might be resurrected to a better life.

36 Others had to suffer the trial of mocking and scourging and even chains and imprisonment.

37 They were stoned to death; they were lured with tempting offers [to renounce their faith]; they were sawn asunder; they were slaughtered by the sword; [while they were alive] they had to go about wrapped in the skins of sheep and goats, utterly destitute, oppressed, cruelly treated—

38 [Men] of whom the world was not worthy—roaming over the desolate places and the mountains, and [living] in caves and caverns and holes of the earth.

39 And all of these, though they won divine approval by [means of] their faith, did not receive the fulfillment of what was promised,

40 Because God had us in mind and had something better and greater in view for us, so that they [these heroes and heroines of faith] should not come to perfection apart from us [before we could join them].

Let’s look at Revelation as well. In chapter 21

Revelation 21

Amplified Bible (AMP)

21 Then I saw a new [a]sky (heaven) and a new earth, for the former [b]sky and the former earth had passed away (vanished), and there no longer existed any sea.

2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband;

3 Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God.

4 God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.

5 And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).

6 And He [further] said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life.

7 He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.

8 But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage andthe cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)—[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.

9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven final plagues (afflictions, calamities) came and spoke to me. He said, Come with me! I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

10 Then in the Spirit He conveyed me away to a vast and lofty mountain and exhibited to me the holy (hallowed, consecrated) city of Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God,

11 Clothed in God’s glory [in all its splendor and radiance]. The luster of it resembled a rare and most precious jewel, like jasper, shining clear as crystal.

12 It had a massive and high wall with twelve [large] gates, and at the gates [there were stationed] twelve angels, and [on the gates] the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were written:

13 On the east side three gates, on the north side three gates, on the south side three gates, and on the west side three gates.

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundation [stones], and on them the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 And he who spoke to me had a golden measuring reed (rod) to measure the city and its gates and its wall.

16 The city lies in a square, its length being the same as its width. And he measured the city with his reed—12,000 stadia (about 1,500 miles); its length and width and height are the same.

17 He measured its wall also—144 cubits (about 72 yards) by a man’s measure [[c]of a cubit from his elbow to his third fingertip], which is [the measure] of the angel.

18 The wall was built of jasper, while the city [itself was of] pure gold, clear and transparent like glass.

19 The foundation [stones] of the wall of the city were ornamented with all of the precious stones. The first foundation [stone] was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony (or white agate), the fourth emerald,

20 The fifth onyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each separate gate being built of one solid pearl. And the main street (the broadway) of the city was of gold as pure and translucent as glass.

22 I saw no temple in the city, for the Lord God Omnipotent [Himself] and the Lamb [Himself] are its temple.

23 And the city has no need of the sun nor of the moon to give light to it, for the splendor andradiance (glory) of God illuminate it, and the Lamb is its lamp.

24 The nations shall walk by its light and the rulers and leaders of the earth shall bring into it their glory.

25 And its gates shall never be closed by day, and there shall be no night there.

26 They shall bring the glory (the splendor and majesty) and the honor of the nations into it.

27 But nothing that defiles or profanes or is [d]unwashed shall ever enter it, nor anyone who commits abominations (unclean, detestable, morally repugnant things) or practices falsehood, but only those whose names are recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

GOD is very clear here…and we KNOW that HIS word is TRUE.

No one knows the time or the hour, but it definitely is NOW drawing nearer than ever before. Do not wait to seek the FACE of GOD. He can bring holy redemption. IT is finished already. BUt, we must receive what was done on the CROSS.

The future will be GLORIOUS in the HEAVENLIES….I want to go forward in HIM and also back to pick up enemy spoils. The future in HIM will be the ONLY thing that is eternal.

In His Grace and GLORY,

E and Fam

NEVER SURRENDER

This morning I was awoken around 5 something. I looked at the CLOCK on my cell and it said 5:36 AM. That was interesting to me. 5 is HIS GRACE and FAVOR and 36 stands for overcoming the enemy. It is also the 2oth, which is REDEMPTION. GOD is FAITHFUL. He just is! Does that mean we won’t go through anything? Well, NO it does not mean that. What is does mean is simple. GOD and HIS LOVE prevails against ALL EVIL. Because of HIS unfailing LOVE for us, we can choose to NEVER SURRENDER to the enemy.

THIS is a precarious season. It is one where it seems from every direction there is FIRE. It comes from family, friends, people who see us as enemies, you name it. BUT, as much unfriendly FIRE comes, know that HIS FIRE will overcome it ALL. God’s command is HOLINESS. Are we living it? Are we giving it? Are we asking GOD to do so through us on a consistent basis?

Just so ya’ll know the pushback and “warfare” around this topic is NOT small. This post was begun yesterday and is still not finished. We serve an awesome GOD. His mercies are knew every single morning. He is nonetheless a faithful GOD. This begins to show up in more ways as days goes on. The more surrendered we are to HIS ways and plans, the better. He will always ROAR on our behalf. Cause GOD’s power cannot be undermined or taken away. IT is timeless, all encompassing and never ending.

In this season, I truly feel sorry for people who are NOT receiving or walking in the LOVE of God. We FIGHT not against flesh and BLOOD but against spirits and principalities. We have had so much psychological garbage fed into us. Only GOD can wash us clean. He will do so by the BLOOD of the LAMB! So who are we surrendering to? Are we using God’s holy weapons to have the victory HE has promised we can live in?

Matthew 16:24-27 ESV

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul? For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done.

Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

James 4:8 ESV

Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

1 Corinthians 10:13 ESV

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

Romans 12:1 ESV

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

1 John 2:1-29 ESV

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him:

Psalm 9:10 ESV

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

1 Corinthians 6:20 ESV

For you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

Philippians 2:12-16 ESV

Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure. Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.

Romans 10:17 ESV

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

Psalm 46:10 ESV

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

I say to YOU right now. If you are surrendered to the enemy already, you will see DEATH manifest. But, choosing GOD brings LIFE! It brings FREEDOM that is HOLY! To us it is a no brainer cause the enemy is a defeated foe to  GOD and HIS children who adhere to HIS words. There are so many getting FINAL WARNINGS. SO many falling into hard core enemy traps, but GOD can rescue you, as long as you RECEIVE the rescue. Captivity can often appear a comfort, but it is NOT. It is a prison. It can be a mind, body and soul one. But know that even PAUL and SILAS endured prison, and they were set free in HIS LOVE.

Years ago I heard this song and thought then about GOD’s faithfulness…it was likely written about FEAR of failure. But read it through GOD and see the TRUTH. We can NEVER surrender to the enemy. That is blatant disrespect to GOD who made us. We have small hands but HIS hands are HUGE. ALWAYS surrender to GOD. It is the ONLY thing that will sustain, heal and deliver us from the enemy hands and keep us safe.

OH TIME IS ALL WE’RE ASKING FOR
TO NEVER SURRENDER
OH, YOU CAN NEVER SURRENDER
TIME IS ALL WE’RE ASKING FOR

If we are NOT surrendered to our ALMIGHTY GOD, who comes AS the Heavenly Father, His son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit we shall surely perish. He desires for NONE to perish. But, we know by reading Revelation that some will. NEVER SURRENDER to the enemy’s plans. Command ALL unholiness to be stripped from your life and that of those you are used to PRAY for. GOD does it through us, and HE never FAILS. He cannot fail, because HE alone can breathe and resurrect what is needed for HIS purposes.

Today we pray that GOD be our strength, hope, JOY health, peace, equilibrium, and everything else that is needed. Do it ALL LORD through your children. YOU alone are GLORIOUS!!!! YOU alone are everything PURE and righteous. WE surrender to you and reaffirm that we are divorced from the enemy an his plans. We repent for any areas that have not been fully surrendered. We thank you that enemy plans are thwarted already. You alone will continue in Victory and we will walk in it with you. Thank you for you LOVE, word, and beautiful holy weapons of warfare. You are faithful GOD. Bring comfort to those mourning and grieving. The blood of Jesus at the root of any negative spiritual influence. Thank you for delivering us from ALL evil. In Jesus Holy Name and BLOOD. Amen

I beseech you all to choose HIS LOVE. For one, hell is not a joke. But, most importantly our awesome GOD deserves to be honored above ALL else. GLORY to our mighty and righteous GOD!!!!

TOUGH AS NAILS

As a child I thought like a child. Or did I? People tell me how wonderful my childhood was. Yet, all I can recall is the challenges. I mean, if I really sit and think hard I can remember a few times of LOVE and laughter. But, what stands out most is the false truth…LIE that the enemy told me about being TOUGH. My mom would tell me, “Don’t wear your emotions on your sleeve.” Yet, guess what my mother did? My father would never speak about strength. My parents LOVED the LORD, but in many ways had difficulty receiving LOVE from HIM. Yet, they hungered for it, as we ALL do.

I desperately wanted LOVE. From the time I was little, I had  a deep desire for it. I came in almost mantled with rejection. It seems that I encountered it on every turn. I did not know then, what an honor that actually was. Because look at the LIFE of JESUS. Who has ever been more rejected than CHRIST? NO ONE. I slowly as I got older found more and more passion within for GOD and HIS purpose. I feel into the darkness thinking I had to stay as TOUGH as NAILS. BUT GOD, pursued me and sought my heart, patiently waiting on me to come and let HIM LOVE me.

THREE very different views of what we can only picture happened to CHRIST our SAVIOR. ~

When this topic fell into my spirit I was kind of not happy about it. On one hand it is an awesome topic. But, on the other, we get more persecution than anything for being vulnerable. Does anyone ever LOVE being persecuted? Jesus didn’t enjoy it, though He rejoiced. He kept praising GOD no matter the challenges. Because HE is GOD, He is tough as nails. YET, when He was here He was not, because HE lived out the human journey. It is part of why we MUST walk out that portion of the journey too.

These horrible things that happen should soften US not harden us. THAT is GOD’s plan. He wants us to have compassionate hearts. HIS heart is not a HARD heart. It is QUITE the opposite. But, how many are walking around literally bleeding out and not knowing? Because they fell they cannot show their hearts, for fear that it will lead to slaughter. Can you relate? I know I can. I know David can. I know when Sarah Beth walked this earth she hated to see suffering. This child of HIS was used and is still to teach us that GOD’s LOVE never fails.

We could stay hurt, angry, wounded, destroyed, couldn’t we? But, maybe when we choose NOT to, then THAT will multiply. We will know that because of the NAILS on the CROSS and what was done there. The way that JESUS took everything we can ever imagine against himself, and even unto DEATH, overcame is beyond inspiring. THINK for a moment about THAT LOVE. TO LOVE us so much that HE would be slaughtered, crucified, condemned, and you name it on our behalf.

James 1:1-27 ESV

James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion: Greetings. Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

Psalm 103:1-22 ESV

Of David. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Matthew 6:33 ESV

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Luke 10:1-11 ESV

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’

“At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, two others stood, one on this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream.

Jeremiah 7:8-10 ESV

“Behold, you trust in deceptive words to no avail. Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, make offerings to Baal, and go after other gods that you have not known, and then come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, ‘We are delivered!’—only to go on doing all these abominations?

Ecclesiastes 1:7 ESV

All streams run to the sea, but the sea is not full; to the place where the streams flow, there they flow again.

Zechariah 14:2 ESV

Daniel 8:1-27 ESV

In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar a vision appeared to me, Daniel, after that which appeared to me at the first. And I saw in the vision; and when I saw, I was in Susa the capital, which is in the province of Elam. And I saw in the vision, and I was at the Ulai canal. I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the canal. It had two horns, and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great. As I was considering, behold, a male goat came from the west across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground. And the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes.

Isaiah 40:22 ESV

It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;

 

Isaiah 11:1-16 ESV

There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord. He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide disputes by what his ears hear, but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked. Righteousness shall be the belt of his waist, and faithfulness the belt of his loins.

I thought about little boys and how they are often taught NOT to cry. My husband was led to speak tonight about how tough that was. It was NOT until Sarah Beth, our butterfly, passed that DAVID began to shed tears from a place of healing. No more anger that had been held in for so long. NO more links to the enemy’s plots. All unholy ties CUT away. ONLY GOD can do this. I am not saying that we are 100% or perfect, but WE can say that because of GOD’s LOVE, Grace, MERCY, PEACE, HOPE, JOY, ENDURANCE and every other part of HIS HOLINESS WE can WALK in FREEDOM. WE can SEE HIS TRUTHS. WE CAN BECOME BULLETPROOF in HIM. GOD CAN and WILL SUCCEED. He will NOT FAIL. So therefore, when we are surrendered to HIM and HIS perspectives, neither will we. 😉

Today WE pray for the many families who are grieving LOSES. It feels like it SUCKS the LIFE out of us at times. GOD, you know. This is NO surprise to YOU. Father you watched your son literally conquer HELL. Thank you for the comfort which you are pouring out on US and ALL of these families. YOU LOVE to a degree that we can barely even fathom. You are GLORIOUS. You are tough as nails, so we don’t have to be. THANK you for never leaving us or forsaking us, never giving up on us and always encouraging us. Thank you that you ALMIGHTY GOD ARE not A god OF GUILT AND CONDEMNATION, BUT ARE  A GOD OF LOVE AND ADORATION!!!!

In Jesus HOLY NAME and BLOOD,

Amen

LOVE to ALL of YOU. Know that WE do NOT have it ALL together, but we are grateful for GOD and for each of you. Thankful to be ALIVE.  Grateful to LIVE in HIS LOVE.

In His Grace and GLORY,

THE GATES ARE OPENING…TIME TO GO THROUGH

TODAY….the GATES of HEAVEN are OPEN. It is the 7th which we know is HOLY completion. March is the 3rd month which is GLORY. IT is the 2014 – 20 is REDEMPTION and 14- Deliverance according to HIS WORD.  Today GOD is working hard on your behalf, if you are serving HIM. It may not LOOK like it. But, be NOT dismayed by what you THINK you see. THere is SO MUCH more behind HIS holy veil and curtain. The question is DO you want to SEE it? Because GOD is showing HIS TRUTH and GLORY to many of HIS chosen COGS.

It is high time that WE as nations come together in HOLY UNITY of the LORD. That we fight back in the spirit against things like FEMA. Things that were put in place to hurt and harm. But, GOD will turn it around. IT absolutely will work for HIS GOOD and for the good of those who LOVE HIM, receive that LOVE and are called according to HIS purpose. BE NOT AFRAID. Put on FAITH. REaffirm YOUR ARMOR. Ask Father to drench you in HOLY OIL!!!!! IT works!!!!

This morning I was thinking, WE still need to have communion. I repented and said, sorry Father GOD that we have not. He said, “Daughter know that my time is PERFECT. You will not me up my plan. Just keep LOVING and worshiping me. I will walk you through my HEAVENLY GATES. Funny that should have been we will NOT mess up HIS plan, but BOTH are true. 😉

I will NOT justify sin. I have fallen into that trap before. The spirit of justification leads to DEATH. Eventually we must face that head on. WE cannot run from demons. It is a command from GOD to send them to the ABYSS where they belong. Persecution will HEAT up, but so will the BLESSINGS and FAVOR of GOD when we RECEIVE His LOVE. We walk in LOVE not to get something but to HONOR our mighty GOD!!!!

The HEAVENLY GATES are open, it is what is meant when “UNDER AN OPEN HEAVEN” is spoken. One of the many layers of this is open gates. Also, OPEN SKIES are present. This is why the enemy is trying so hard with his last resorts. SOme things may not be directly from GOD, but will often be permitted by HIM. His plan is always in action, and remember that HE wins! GLORY to our mighty and HOLY KING!!!!!

Revelation 21

Amplified Bible (AMP)

21 Then I saw a new [a]sky (heaven) and a new earth, for the former [b]sky and the former earth had passed away (vanished), and there no longer existed any sea.

2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband;

3 Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God.

4 God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.

5 And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).

6 And He [further] said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give water without price from the fountain (springs) of the water of Life.

7 He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.

8 But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage andthe cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)—[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.

9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven final plagues (afflictions, calamities) came and spoke to me. He said, Come with me! I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

10 Then in the Spirit He conveyed me away to a vast and lofty mountain and exhibited to me the holy (hallowed, consecrated) city of Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God,

11 Clothed in God’s glory [in all its splendor and radiance]. The luster of it resembled a rare and most precious jewel, like jasper, shining clear as crystal.

12 It had a massive and high wall with twelve [large] gates, and at the gates [there were stationed] twelve angels, and [on the gates] the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were written:

13 On the east side three gates, on the north side three gates, on the south side three gates, and on the west side three gates.

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundation [stones], and on them the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 And he who spoke to me had a golden measuring reed (rod) to measure the city and its gates and its wall.

16 The city lies in a square, its length being the same as its width. And he measured the city with his reed—12,000 stadia (about 1,500 miles); its length and width and height are the same.

17 He measured its wall also—144 cubits (about 72 yards) by a man’s measure [[c]of a cubit from his elbow to his third fingertip], which is [the measure] of the angel.

18 The wall was built of jasper, while the city [itself was of] pure gold, clear and transparent like glass.

19 The foundation [stones] of the wall of the city were ornamented with all of the precious stones. The first foundation [stone] was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony (or white agate), the fourth emerald,

20 The fifth onyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst.

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each separate gate being built of one solid pearl. And the main street (the broadway) of the city was of gold as pure and translucent as glass.

22 I saw no temple in the city, for the Lord God Omnipotent [Himself] and the Lamb [Himself] are its temple.

23 And the city has no need of the sun nor of the moon to give light to it, for the splendor andradiance (glory) of God illuminate it, and the Lamb is its lamp.

24 The nations shall walk by its light and the rulers and leaders of the earth shall bring into it their glory.

25 And its gates shall never be closed by day, and there shall be no night there.

26 They shall bring the glory (the splendor and majesty) and the honor of the nations into it.

27 But nothing that defiles or profanes or is [d]unwashed shall ever enter it, nor anyone who commits abominations (unclean, detestable, morally repugnant things) or practices falsehood, but only those whose names are recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

JUDGEMENT will FALL on those REBELLIOUS to God’s ways. HIS GRACE and chances only last so LONG. No more mixed seeds in this season. You will choose. IT will be 100% GOD or not. There is a fine line between GOOD and EVIL which means there is a fine LINE between GOD and the enemy. IF you are led to read it, in 2010 GOD used me to write a book called “Walking the LINE Between GOD and satan.”  I pray He uses it tremendously in your lives.

and  http://bookstore.authorhouse.com/Products/SKU-000249071/Walking-the-Line-Between-God-and-Satan.aspx

The windows that have been open for those in defiance of Grace and Mercy are closing. GOD will not allow HIS COGS to suffer forever. It is time to come humbly before HIM repenting on behalf of you and others. It is time to FORGIVE and remember that spirits and involved. WE fight not against flesh and blood as it is written.

The WAR has BEGUN

This morning as GOD awoke me, 4 hours after sleeping, for the first time in months without assistance; THANK GOD for that it was placed into my spirit to write about the WAR. This is a topic that has been discussed A LOT. Believe me when I say it will be beat to DEATH. Quite literally I mean that. It is the one subject matter that cannot be discussed enough.

We are at a place where people are TAKING positions in the ARMY. Are you in GOD’s ARMY?

This last week there has been an increased intensity. I would say a NEW FIRE. Up till now we have been, many of us warriors experiencing “friendly fire.” That is when people who seem to be friends are used to throw darts. In THIS level we are experiencing “Unfriendly fire.” It is directly from HELL.  But here is the wonderful thing. There are heavenly warriors being used to deflect it from you. THAT is JUST how much YOU are LOVED.

 

I am definitely walking out the HUMAN aspect of this journey. Honestly I would LOVE to stay in the spirit 100%. But, GOD told me just recently I must embrace through HIM being a Human. That, it does not have to be a weakness. Nor, does it need to be a license to sin. It was very eye opening to me. For years I had hated with a passion being human. Finally I can accept it as PART of the process.

 

It does not mean we LIVE in the BROKENNESS or that WE stay wounded. But, we must become very aware that getting wounded is NOT a failure. It is simply part of the healing process. Look at the LIFE of JESUS our holy brother. HE was wounded for our transgressions, NOT His own. We need not worship the wounds. THAT is the place of WAR. Many of us have been bound by the SPIRIT of EMOTION for years.

We NEED very DEEP healing. The enemy will try hard to use those wounds to KILL us, inflict more pain, torture us, torment us.  When WE is spoken of it refers to not only our family, that is growing in GOD, but the BODY of CHRIST as a WHOLE. GOD is saddened by the many warriors and leaders in what the world sees as high positions not listening. Not only that, but not hearing in many instances and the blatant ignoring of correction.

If we cannot sit at the FEET of JESUS in each other, at the feet of the HEAVENLY FATHER and HOLY SPIRIT, what good are we? Yes, GOD can use us but not nearly as effective as HE could otherwise. As much as this grieves GOD, you have to know HE sees the bigger picture. Thank GOD he does not STAY in anger or disappointment. Neither should we. But how often do we live there, or does it stay hidden.

The battles, all the mini ones that sure did not seem miniature, have ALL led up to this place. THIS WAR. There have been world wars and LOTS of rumors of WAR too. BUT THIS is different. THIS is the WAR of the HEAVENLIES coming against the EARTH. THIS is what we have prayed for. LET’s REJOICE! Is it easy? NOPE Does it suck at us and often feel like LIFE is being sucked out of us? YEP

GOD is separating US….HE is doing it. There are some walking away from people calling it GOD when it is NOT GOD directly, but may simply be permitted by HIM. Remember HE uses everything, yet HE excuses NOTHING. NEVER hold onto personally what GOD deserves to have released. THIS is a HARD LESSON.

Some have to physically die to achieve surrender. I know, I have a few times. The POINT of this post is to remind you that GOD WINS the WAR. There are many who read the blog. They think we are unaware, or that GOD is. Some of them think they are getting away with the evils they attempt. But even that is a LIE. GOD sees ALL….HE LOVE US ALL until, that place comes when HE cannot anymore because we won’t receive it.

defeat

 

This is posted to say one thing…..EVEN if you have been ONE of them. GOD can change that. He is waiting to, in the WINGS. ~

So here is the question of the hour? What is your position in the WAR? YOU might have many hats. I know I do and WE do. But, KNOW what GOD has called you to DO. One thing I know for certain. WE are ALL CALLED to share HIS LOVE. THAT is what WINS THE WAR. 😉

Revelation 12:7-11 ESV

Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.

Psalm 100:1-5 ESV

A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Genesis 1:1 ESV

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

1 Peter 3:1-22 ESV

Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands,

John 11:35 ESV

Jesus wept.

Exodus 17:16 ESV

Saying, “A hand upon the throne of the Lord! The Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.”

I want to say one more thing. I was not going to, but I believe I am supposed to. Sarah Elizabeth is NOT a casualty in THIS WAR. She is a HEROINE, a HOLY ONE. God used her and still does today. Her part is not finished. It is FAR from FINISHED. It simply changed directions from the earth to PARADISE. I am so beyond words grateful for the time David and I and ALL who enjoyed GOD in her had on earth in a tangible way. NOW, we must learn to enjoy the intangible. HIS GLORY is often BIRTHED and RESURRECTED there. ~
