This morning when I woke, a little over 3 hrs after going to sleep. As He woke me, I had trouble. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to obey. MY heart is pretty well always in it. IT was more my flesh was very tired. I was informed gently, “His GRace is sufficient, and HIS power made perfect in our weakness. I smiled, and said, “Okay Daddy.”
So I come today, asking HIM to, as always do the work. It is so much better when GOD does it. There were 39 stripes put upon Jesus’s back. When He was crucified on Calvary, this horrendous act was done, and IT, ALL that needed to BE, became finished. It was pointed out today that this number Biblically represents disease. So, for those who say our sickness did not die on a cross, here is proof that it did.
I was thinking of God’s surpassing LOVE today, how it truly surpasses everything when WE allow it to permeate us. This must be an important post. I say this because I started it about an hour ago, and half an hour in, the session randomly logged out. I had to wake David to assist me, getting it back up. But, as always GOD resurrected it.
Just as THIS happened with the crucifixion, so it keeps happening in the lives of HIS COGS. I wonder sometimes why people say they believe, but when tested, it is proven otherwise. I wonder, How could anyone RUN from God’s love. The word tells us that the wages of sin is death. That means, the more we are attached to sin, the less we are attached to GOD. It is either GOD and HIS LOVE that multiplies, or evil and it’s sin.
Do you want a chance to begin again, and in a new way? Because if you do, there is GREAT news available for you. Every single day is a NEW day and a NEW beginning for something wonderful, in the KINGDOM of GOD. You get a clean slate with HIM every day. In fact, I have noticed, we often get it every moment, if needed. But, the point is this; the GOD who created us, is a GOD of LOVE and ADORATION. The one that feel from Heaven, and into HELL is not. The second one, our enemy, is a god who can only bring DEATH.
David and I are not perfect. We will shout that from the rooftops. But, WE serve a perfect GOD. WE don’t come from a place of religion. but relationship in HIM. For He is the one who leads, us guides us and in whom WE abide. He knows what we are going through. HE knows how hard it is to walk into the storm. He also hold our hands in the process. Thanks be to GOD.
Grateful are we, humbled always before HIM. Repentful from the bottom of our hearts of anything that may have remotely hindered HIS plan. We are not so prideful to think we could stop HIS plan. WE can’t, but we have been used before to try and complicate it. God really is a simple GOD. He is ALL about the LOVE…..but HIS LOVE is like no other. IT requires holy obedience to receive it. IT will hang out and wait for us. But, only so many chances will be given, before the opportunity to chose it runs out. THe LOVE never ever does.
I sometimes wonder, if GOD is proud of me. I used to wonder if my parents were, or my family. Now, when I wonder from childlike Faith I ask. I always hear, “My child, well done my good and faithful servant. I love you so. For you are my treasure and a jewel in my crown. One of my masterpieces. ” For those who tell us, “God doesn’t speak to me that way” we say this, “Ask God is there is something blocking that?” Meaning if He is always firm with you, perhaps that portion might need healing. It might not be the HOLY GOD. Seek HIM, and you will find out.

To the choirmaster: according to The Doe of the Dawn. A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning? O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer, and by night, but I find no rest. Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel. In you our fathers trusted; they trusted, and you delivered them. To you they cried and were rescued; in you they trusted and were not put to shame.

His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.

And throwing down the pieces of silver into the temple, he departed, and he went and hanged himself. But the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, “It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since it is blood money.” So they took counsel and bought with them the potter’s field as a burial place for strangers. Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. Then was fulfilled what had been spoken by the prophet Jeremiah, saying, “And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him on whom a price had been set by some of the sons of Israel,

And when Peter saw it he addressed the people: “Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this, or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or piety we have made him walk? The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him. But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses. And his name—by faith in his name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all.

Today LORD, we seek you to permeate our souls. TO extinguish any darkness and HELL as only you can. First and foremost we praise YOU for you are worthy. YOU alone are GOD. WE thank you LION of Judah for roaring on our behalf. Transform us in your GLORY for your GLORY. IN Jesus Holy and MIGHTY name and BLOOD. Amen
Today is the 18th, biblically representing bondage. LET GOD open the prison doors and receive the SON as well as see the sunrise. 🙂
GOD in HEAVEN brings DEATH in FAITH but it is HOLY DEATH, NOT SCARY. The god in HELL brings Death by FEAR. ONE brings a resurrection and new life. The other brings only destruction and mayhem. Choose this day whom you will serve. As for me and my house, WE will serve the LORD. WE serve the Heavenly Father, LORD JESUS and Holy Spirit together. ONLY GOD must get the GLORY….ALWAYS.
We must remember something. The GOD we serve is a bondage breaker. Over and over. our creator our maker. He is the way the truth and the life. He stomps and squashes FEAR and STRIFE. He brings peace and make us complete. Receive the healing this day. For by HIS stripes we are surely healed, and GOD alone has GLORIOUSLY made a WAY!!!! Hallelujah and thank you LORD, not for the world’s reward. Because they will ebb and flow. THose will come and go. But, we thank you for loving us, trusting that WE will obey. Reminding us, that you and YOU alone will always stay. YOu keep us hidden in you. YOU make ALL things NEW. You alone turn the tide, you alone turn the page. IT was 39 stripes, the bible’s number of disease. So, when people say, He didn’t take sickness, I think Oh please…As in please LORD turn it ROUND. So the world can hear the sound of your heart. You make it right, your perfect our ways. We repent this day, of places we may falter, both past and even future. LORD, come and stitch our wounds, with your holy sutures. YOu know what should have been, what you freed and saved us from. Let us not forget your precious LOVE. WE bless you name, we are forever changed because you touched us. We love YOU.
