When I was called to write this entry, I really felt sick at my stomach. Because it is VERY important. If we were to take a pole about people who really believe not only in GOD, but in HIS faithfulness and LOVE, it would probably be disappointing, if people were honest.

Usage Discussion of REAL

Most handbooks consider the adverb real to be informal and more suitable to speech than writing. Our evidence shows these observations to be true in the main, but real is becoming more common in writing of an informal, conversational style. It is used as an intensifier only and is not interchangeable with really except in that use.

Examples of REAL

  1. We had a real good time.
  2. The water is real warm.
  3. We went to bed real late.

Exploring the Definitions

You will notice that the 2 definitions are not only complete opposites, but also that counterfeit is a shorter definition. Cause how many ways can we actually say fake?

It is odd to me, that God called me to write this on a day, or a few days where I am not “feeling” very encouraged. But, that was when it began. By the time it is ending, encouraged does NOT even describe how I feel inside. God often calls us to do the impossible. Let’s explain. He does the impossible through, around and in us.

Today is the 25th. This was begun 3 and a half days ago. I thank God for Grace, because David and I have been doing really heavy intercession. With that, often comes pretty heavy warfare at times. See, the enemy throws a hissy fit when he doesn’t get his way. Like a 2 year olf toddler throwing tantrums, is how he is. But, know THIS God’s power is where the enemy gets his source. There is NOTHING that shocks God. Even the enemy’s team knows that. The problem is, that people think they have so much time to waste.

There is NO time to waste. Now HEAR this. There is absolutely NOT time to waste anymore. Every single second counts. Many prophesies have spoken that the antichrist is taking reign. Now, on the one hand, this is exciting, because it means biblical prophesy is taking place. But, on the other, it means a lot of other stuff. So, I say with deepest sincerity, “Please read the word of God aloud.” God will minister healing through HIS word. He wants us saturated in HIS presence and amazing and unfailing LOVE. But, if we do not let HIS words penetrate our hearts, we will perish, often quickly and some won’t make it to heaven.

This post came at a time where it felt like HELL was barbecuing us for dinner. But, just because it felt that way to the flesh does NOT mean that was what was happening. Our pastor said it well yesterday. She said, “Change hurts sometimes.” It does, but oh how necessary the pruning is in the Harvest. I am not unaware of the enemies schemes, nor are we unaware of those participating in them. But, our goal is to LOVE anyway.

Should that NOT be done? After all the character CORE of Christ is LOVE. So, that leads us to know that at the core of the antichrist is Hate. Because, the enemy ONLY carries HATE. No matter what is said, by the enemy, He hates God’s COGS. In fact, the devil hates ALL humans. Even his own followers are hated by satan.

So, here is the question to ask…. Do you believe in what is counterfeit or what is REAL?

My awesome Godly Husband, hence forth, AGH, told me that Wisdom is the opposite of the obvious. God revealed THIS to Him. Obvious is what is right in front of you. But, people who have HIS wisdom see what is behind the curtain as well. What is REAL to you? Is God’s LOVE real to you?

Because if you understand the idea of HIS LOVE without understanding the cause and effect of HIS LOVE, you cannot receive the LOVE. So, ask yourself have you ever received what is REAL?

Conflict in the world is, as in scripture centered around Israel. Is ra el. Let’s break it down. Is Ra God? The answer is no, the devil is not god. It is also is REAL. Meaning El, the name for God is REAL. Have always been fascinated with Israel. Because it is the “apple of God’s eye.” Also, it is HOMEland. It is the place, where God’s legacy is birthed from.

So, without, getting too specific, and the Hebrew documentation will be included in time, EL is GOD and HE is REAL, and HIS LAND should be honored, period. The counterfeit will try and take advantage, without remorse or repentance, and our one and ONLY JOB is to LOVE anyway. As children of GOD, we should not be doormats, but we should be HOLY DOORWAYS to JESUS.

In His Grace,
