God’s playground

I have been out of the  “blogisphere” for a bit. Just taking time to heal. Taking in God’s LOVE and seeing that the weight of HIS Glory can absolutely crush us. But really, that is what we need. Because anything that is left afterwards is of HIM, and not us. This topic came to me a while ago. It is interesting that this day was chosen for writing. It is the 22nd, and the number 22 biblically represents LIGHT. It is the month of May, which is 5 and that biblically represents Grace and Favor. I enjoy numbers, yet I have no fear of them. What I have fear in is one thing, and that is GOD. Because when that is the ONLY thing we have FEAR in, ALL else fails. No idea which direction this was going today, thankfully God knew. I woke up feeling fresh out of battle. Grateful to once again still be alive. Yet, part of me still longing for home. Perhaps that is why my heart has been aching. I have had people influenced by many evil tell me things. They say, “You should not play with fire. Especially fire you don’t understand.” In saying that to someone, often they expose themselves. Have you heard of the devil’s playground? Why of course you have. It is seemingly all over the place. But, did you know God has one too? Cause that seems to be a bit less advertised. Heaven__s_Playground_by_BrownEyedWyldChyld But, He does. His playground is Heaven. Do you believe that you have to wait till you physically die to receive it? Because that is simply not true. It is a lie that has been circulated for a very long time. Thankfully, God is making HIS presence very known. Do you know how to tell when something is of God? It is very simple really. There is peace. It is a PEACE that cannot be stolen or removed or even manipulated. It is stapled to us and US to HIM. There is a HOPE that cannot be denied. God’s LOVE is like that of no other. So many try to do things of this world and call it God. There are churches being made to worship people instead of the holy creator. God is not amused, yet is also NOT moved. His position remains the same. Calling Heaven a playground is not meant to take away the GLORY. It is simply hoping to redefine how the world sees it. It is so much more than a playground. It is a place of 100% PEACE, REST, COMFORT, HOLINESS, JOY,HOPE, REASSURANCE, LOVE and so much more. Movies like “Heaven is Real” are being used to pave the way for more of HIS GLORY to arrive. Are you ready? Or will it crush you? I am starting to get really BORED with the things of this world. That is because I spend a lot of time on God’s play ground. On His land no one falls and has broken bones. People might get bruised, but heal quickly. With GOD you know what you are getting is holy. On the enemy’s playing field, you can be certain that not only is it unholy, but it will destroy. No credit given to the enemy here, because when we repent for spending time on the enemy’s playground, where there are minefields hidden as you play, GOD removes us and takes us to HIS. There is something called the spirit of amusement. It is that thing that drives us to ONLY want fun, no matter the consequences. It causes us to look out for self and often call it God. This can happen mainly because of what we have seen, or been taught. In many case this happens because we have wounds that have not been healed. We have not gone from the playground of the world, to GOD and asked for it to be dealt with. Personally, to know that if we feel the need to justify our actions, they might not be of God is part of being openly corrected. I could list all the demons that are on the enemy’s playground. But, why should we give credit, or space to that? Just know that the enemy and his minions do not work separately. The enemy knows power in unity. It is high time God’s people get this revelation. I want to be on HIS playing field. I desire not only to see the miracles but to experience them. You can be a guinea pig if you like, but I am choosing redemption. Thank you GOD that your playground is NOT just ALL fun and games. It is major battles at times and a very real WAR to LOVE the people from the other playground. It consists of a constant surrender of self, to learn more how to be holy and selfless through your coaching and guiding. Heaven will come to EARTH but will you recognize it??? If you are not coming before HIM with a PURE heart, odds are not in your favor.  Stay repentant before GOD and only GOD. If you are afraid of the enemy then be ready to fall prey to him. It really is that simple. ONLY fear, respect and revere the Heavenly FATHER, the holy son, his child and our holy brother JESUS, and the Glorious Holy Spirit. ~ Heaven is for REAL indeed  and I am not waiting till my last breathe to experience it. What about you??? It resides within you according to the word of GOD. We house HIS spirit.

A RIGHT NOW WORD IN SEASON

May 22, 2014 at 7:39am
THIS WORD OF THE LORD IS A SIGN OF PROPHETIC FULFILLMENT AND APOSTOLIC ALIGNMENT TRANSPIRING AT THIS HOUR TO BRING US IN A SPIRITUAL RE-POSITIONING. IT IS MANDATORY FOR YOU TO STAND, SEE, WATCH, AND LISTEN BECAUSE THE LORD IS CAUSING US TO COME UP HIGHER AND THIS IS THE PLACE THAT HE IS BRINGING “GREAT SEPARATION” IN THE BODY OF CHRIST. IT IS A TIME FOR UNITY AND A COMING TOGETHER, BUT AT THE SAME TIME THERE IS MUCH DIVIDING TAKING PLACE FOR THE SAKE OF DESTINY. THERE ARE THOSE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THEY ARE DOING THE WORK OF THE LORD BUT THEY HAVE BECOME A TASKMASTER FOR THE ENEMY. THEY SPEAK ONE THING OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS, BUT THE REALITY IS THAT THEIR HEART IS MADE OF MANY IDOLS THAT THEY HAVE “NOT” CONTENDED AND DEALT WITH. THEREFORE, THEY LIVE TWO LIVES.      THERE ARE SOME LEADERS THAT HAVE LINKED UP WITH PEOPLE AS WHO I DESCRIBED ABOVE WHO DID NOT AND WILL NOT DISCERN THE EVIL INTENT BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN HEART IDOLS, BUT I WANT TO ENCOURAGE THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN LIED ON, TALKED ABOUT, PUSHED ASIDE AND TRAMPLED. I TELL YOU TODAY THAT IT IS “NOT” THE END. LOOK UP AND KNOW THAT GOD CAN SEE ALL THINGS. HE ALLOWED THESE THINGS TO COME IN ORDER TO STRENGTHEN YOU AND FOR YOU TO KNOW THAT EVEN LEADERS FALL SHORT OF THE GLORY, BUT DO NOT BE DEPRESSED OR MOVED BY IT.      REVELATION 3:8 SAYS, “I KNOW YOUR WORKS, SEE I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU AN OPEN DOOR, AND NO ONE CAN SHUT IT; FOR YOU HAVE KEPT MY WORD AND HAVE NOT DENIED MY NAME BY YOUR ACTIONS AND ATTITUDES. EVEN AS THESE PEOPLE HAVE MANIPULATED OTHERS AND MADE YOU INTO SOMETHING THAT YOU WERE NOT, GOD HAS THE LAST WORD. THERE IS NO NEED TO RETALIATE OR SEEK VENGEANCE BECAUSE IT IS ALL IN THE HANDS OF GOD. BELIEVE IT!     THIS WORD IS FOR YOU BELOVED….     TRIUMPHING OVER YOUR TASKMASTERS by Prophet Tavolacci     The Lord gave me an incredible word for the body of Christ this morning. In the book of Exodus chapter one, after Joseph and his whole generation had died, the Israelite’s were fruitful, and increased abundantly in Egypt because of him. When the new king had seen this, he was fearful and put task masters over them to oppress them. The task masters made their lives bitter with harsh labor and afflicted them with heavy burdens; but as they did this, something unusual was happening. The more that the Israelite’s were oppressed as the Egyptians worked them ruthlessly, the more they multiplied and spread abroad.   The Holy Spirit is showing me that many of you have been driven and oppressed by the enemy, as well as used and abused by people. Some of you have gone through situations which have been brutal. As you fear God and not man, these afflictions are going to bring you into expansion, growth and prosperity.     The Lord says; those who have tried to manipulate you and belittle you will soon recognize the favor on your life. Those who have tried to control you and oppress you will soon withdraw because of the shield of protection that I have around you. No one could bring harm to you as I am faithful to My word. I will establish you and guard you against the evil one. Don’t fear the spiritual weapon that is formed against you. It shall not succeed, and every tongue that rises against you in judgment shall prove to be false. The evil assignments that are coming against you will be rendered null and void. As the enemy tries to bring devastation and destruction, I will preserve your life. This is your heritage as you abide in Me. Listen for My voice in every situation. Know that I am present in every assault and violation says the Lord.Then the Holy Spirit showed me something else in the same paragraph of Exodus chapter one. In verses 15-21 The king Pharaoh ordered the midwives to kill the first born males as they are born but the midwives refused. When he asked them why they didn’t obey, the midwives replied: “because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women; for they are lively and give birth before the midwives come to them.”And The Lord says; You will even observe in your own life the things that I impart to you will come into fruition and come to pass expeditiously. The intentions that I have for you will come forth suddenly. And just as the Israeli women, you are going to produce in a way that will amaze others. They will witness My goodness as they see your harvest in abundance. You will see the increase even before the midwives come to assist you. This will release you into favor with the Pharaoh’s and the oppressors, and many will begin to submit and reverence My name. Even your enemies will be at peace with you as they see the goodness increase in your life says the Lord.     Exodus 1:11-14 Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh supply cities, Pithom and Raamses. But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were in dread of the children of Israel. So the Egyptians made the children of Israel serve with rigor. And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage-in mortar, in brick, and in all manner of service in the field. All their service in which they made them serve was with rigor.   Psalm 41:11 By this I know that You are well pleased with me, because my enemy does not triumph over me.     Luke 12:32  “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.   This word was how GOD wanted this to END. Humbling indeed. Thanks be to GOD.   In His Grace, E and Fam

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.

back_to_the_future_part_ii_ver1 original timthumb

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.

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

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.

Crucifixion-of-Jesus 34 images (2)

 

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!’

Zechariah 14:3 ESV

Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle.

Daniel 12:1-13 ESV

“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.

Proverbs 14:30 ESV

A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.

Psalm 37:29 ESV

The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever.

Genesis 7:11 ESV

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.

1 Thessalonians 5:21 ESV

But test everything; hold fast what is good.

Galatians 3:25 ESV

But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian,

Matthew 22:39 ESV

And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Zechariah 14:2 ESV

For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped. Half of the city shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

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,

E and FAM

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.

images 7059347-i-cancelli-perlati-del-cielo-che-si-apre

 

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.

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. ~

BULLETPROOF

Before getting into the post today, I feel led to mention that Sarah Elizabeth’s testimony is on the page under God’s Grace faces Us. It was put in the comment section, mainly because my husband is the tech person, and it was the only way I could post it without his assistance. 😉 Love to ALL of YOU. May this be a Blessing unto GOD for you. ~

FORGIVE….not because anyone deserves it but simply because GOD needs us to, over and over as many times as it takes. KEEP on FORGIVING. It is a part of this process. IT damages and destroys enemy plans. Keep on forgiving, it is simply part of LIVING in GOD’s LOVE. ~ GOD alone is worth it.

l38187-ak-47-bullet-69210

 

On around four hours of sleep, roughly I was awoken today. But, the point is GOD who created me, awoke me. I will not try and stifle the challenges in what my husband and I are enduring. I won’t try and compare or contrast it with anything either. But, what I will say is it is something that in order to survive, you MUST have GOD inside. There are many people who walk down this path. In fact, last night at a Steven Curtis Chapman concert, we heard about and could relate to, the pain, the dark places that hunt you when you are simply just trying to crawl, let alone walk THIS out with GOD.

A few days ago, early in the morning when my husband and I were chatting, GOD was very present and speaking. He showed us a compass as a reminder that HE is our direction. He showed us a gold course and reminded us lovingly that with HIM, we always get a hole in ONE. the ONE who created us and LOVE us, regardless of the ODDS of the world, will prevail every single time. No matter how it seems, HE and HIS LOVE NEVER ever Fail.

God revealed that part of this, is the process of becoming bulletproof in GOD. He didn’t take Sarah Beth away. She chose to go. I mean, who could blame her? I have many times kicked myself for not going with her. But, if I had, it would have been defying GOD. We need to really SEE the hurting. Those who are carrying heavy burdens and pain. In fact, GOD says, “who will bind up the wounded?” Someone mentioned to me that this year is ALL about SOULS. I don’t dispute that. But, would add this year is ALL about healing and FREEDOM as we WALK in deliverance through HIS LOVE.

Part of the process of GOD saving a soul is compassion. Without that, people whom GOD loves and created do NOT receive the truth. They choose to worship their wounds, because no one has told them not to. It does not matter how HIGH up God puts us, we must always stay humbled before HIM. Being bulletproof is something that happens when constant and consistent surrender continues to be put in practice, unto our awesome GOD.

Many people are scared of bullets, of canons, of bombs, earthquakes, disasters that are natural according to the world yet supernatural to GOD. Yet, we should not be. We are both DEAD and ALIVE. The enemy cannot kill us of we are in Christ, harbored in HIM not as a fugitive but as a captive who has been set FREE. We should come to a place where our faith in HIS abilities far exceeds any amount of FEAR that WE can FEEL or that can be put on us.

Yet, here is the question. What will it take to get us there? Long ago, He showed us that it takes, what it takes. He reminded me recently after coming of out of the darkness, that He apologized to me in 2011. God, my father, brother and Heavenly everything said sorry to me. He said,” if there was any other way, around the pain, suffering and agony we would have taken it together. ” These words ring out to me. They are a CALL out of the darkness. When the enemy points his guns at us, or provokes us to spiritually throw stones at each other, we must seek God’s FACE. Every single time, when we DO, the LORD Roars on our behalf, and the enemies plans come crashing down in defeat. For GOD alone gets the VICTORY and GLORY.

Does this mean we will never fall for an enemy plot? NO! What it means is simply this. God’s GRACE is sufficient. In that place where it feels like we have fallen farther than we could ever go, GOD is there. He even makes HIS bed in Sheol. We have only glimpsed the HEART of GOD. It is not religion that will be the entry path to salvation. It is simply HIS LOVE, HIS TRUTH, and HIS purposes and plans. It is relationship with GOD alone that brings release from the HEAVENS.

While GOD was using us to share butterfly’s story yesterday, we truly were enveloped by the presence of GOD. There were people who were sent to that concert last night to cause trouble, but they did not succeed. The enemy sends people to create problems. But, GOD sends HIS GLORY to cause those plans to be burnt up by the HOLINESS and presence of GOD. You see part of GOD making us BULLETPROOF is about Crucifixion. Our physical and mental process that GOD gifts unto us so that we can be more in tune with HIS process. This beautiful yet at times horrendous blessing in disguise that is a catalyst for many others to follow, can only be given by GOD.

GOD is our holy SOAP. His blood was shed so that we could REST in HIS fighting through in and around us. HE is the Greatest WARRIOR. He makes us Heroes in HIM. ~

 

I will never ever forget the time on the 25th of November Just 1 day before the day we took Sarah Beth to the hospital, when GOD spoke BLESSING. My heart dropped to the pit of my very SOUL hearing it. I cried out and said, “Father, there are times that at first I don’t like or even enjoy your blessing. But, I will receive it because I do know that your purpose is much greater and that you waste not an ounce of any pain or suffering. ” He told me, ” You are about to get blessed.” Both is preparation, and on some level in warning. GOD knows what will come. The good, bad and UGLY He knows.

But, make no mistake that HIS blessings far out way the challenges of the world in which we reside. HIS ways are so much better than ours. He is unlimited and in HIS ways and timing HE will do exactly what HE has promised as long as YOU are willing, ready and able to receive the BLESSING of GOD. So, will you count the cost and realize that HE has need of you? Will you endure being used, in some cases abused, cast aside, mocked, and persecuted to the nth degree? Or would you rather miss the GLORY of GOD? Sit idly by and not be part of it, or surrender completely even your children, which to some are prize possessions. To GOD they are HIS treasures, WE are HIS COGS. But, in order for HIM to make us Children of GOD Supers, we must give HIM ALL.

We must take a stand against darkness. Ask GOD to strip it from you. Truly, look around the home you have been given and seek HIS LIGHT to permeate anything NOT pleasing to HIM. There are many times I do not please people, but as long as I and you stay surrendered with a repentant heart and MOST of ALL open for correction we will ALWAYS be pleasing to GOD. Not from a place of striving, simply from a place of being HIS child. RESTING in the peace that NO weapon formed will prosper. The LION of JUDAH will ROAR and quite simply the enemies will scatter. Glory be to our mighty GOD. We praise not because of the circumstances, but simply because we know that we know that we know that our GOD is far above them, and so must be be. Hidden under HIS wings fragile as a newborn baby, resurrected each day and healing with every breath. LORD, make us bulletproof whatever and however it must be. We LOVE you.

Romans 5:3-5 ESV

More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

James 1:2-4 ESV

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.

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

1 Peter 4:12-19 ESV

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.

2 Timothy 3:12 ESV

Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Honored and Privileged to be loved by GOD. Walking, running, crawling, and even swimming in the ocean of emotions we face. Yes, we have an enemy. yes, HE is defeated. God will teach us about the spirits, but we must NOT ignore the wounded any longer. We cannot assume that emotion is a spirit. We must ask GOD to minister through us, so that HIS ways are completed and WE are not made into idols. Who will bind up the wounded? Who will tend to those in captivity? Who will allow GOD to take first place in their lives? Is it YOU? He is standing there waiting and many windows are closing quickly. Don’t miss this incredible MOVE of GOD. Choose to let HIM make you bulletproof, no matter what.

In His Grace and GLORY,

When Darkness Calls

For days, in fact since the third of this month, I have been unable to speak much. When I woke, and it was put in my spirit, and on my heart to write today, I wasn’t exactly jumping up and out bed. I thought, look at what is going on in the world. How is what I and we are enduring even important?

http://www.openbible.info/topics/darkness

 

John 1:5 ESV

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

1 John 1:5-7 ESV

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

John 11:10 ESV

But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”

Luke 1:79 ESV

To give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Acts 26:18 ESV

To open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

John 3:19-21 ESV

And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”

1 Thessalonians 5:5 ESV

For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.

Psalm 139:12 ESV

Even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.

Colossians 1:13 ESV

He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,

2 Corinthians 6:14 ESV

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

John 8:12 ESV

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

1 John 2:8-11 ESV

At the same time, it is a new commandment that I am writing to you, which is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

Revelation 9:2 ESV

He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft.

Hebrews 12:18 ESV

For you have not come to what may be touched, a blazing fire and darkness and gloom and a tempest

Matthew 8:12 ESV

While the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Ephesians 5:8 ESV

For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light

Ephesians 6:12 ESV

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Isaiah 50:10 ESV

Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the voice of his servant? Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of theLord and rely on his God.

Romans 1:21 ESV

For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

1 Peter 2:9 ESV

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Ephesians 5:11 ESV

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.

Genesis 1:2 ESV

The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Matthew 25:30 ESV

And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

Isaiah 9:2 ESV

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined.

1 John 1:6 ESV

If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

2 Peter 2:4 ESV

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment;

 

Romans 13:12 ESV

The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.

 

Yet, it is to GOD. Our very breath is important to Him. He doesn’t focus on the wrong, but rejoices in the right. In my life, I have truly never been so weary. For weeks I have cried out to GOD from my soul. It isn’t just because of the death of our only child. It is so much more than that.

 

Darkness has been calling. In fact, everywhere I have looked, there has been darkness. Or, so I thought. It came through friends who were hurt, lashing out and assuming. It arrived through memories. For all intensive purposes that darkness was death.

942742_457036947717218_2111772965_n

 

 

 

But yesterday something happened. God used someone who didn’t know me, to reach out into the darkness and sincerely offer HIS LOVE. Yes, many have been praying. But, so few have reached out. I know it’s scary to watch someone suffer. when we are so wounded ourselves, we often want to or choose to run away. I hold no ill will towards anyone, or harbor any unforgiveness. I simply thank GOD that He used someone.

 

 

THIS is where HIS Glory is birthed. It comes into the darkness. It comes slowly and gently and at times painfully, it is formed here. Without really knowing it, I have been seeking God for answers. I have been sitting with HIM for weeks, just allowing GOD alone to stroke my shower and bathe me in LOVE.

 

 

I have been screaming on the inside. My body started just a few days ago to tremble. I thought, it’s just the grief. But, it wasn’t it was and IS the presence of GOD. I feared He was gone, had left me. Yet, all along, He was with me.

 

 

This is a very personal entry. It is very self reflective, from HIS perspective. Because this morning, I saw GOD crying. I am not saying I have seen GOD per se. But, I have seen what we know as GOD. I saw images of HIS children suffering.

 

 

Yesterday, I watched something. You see, I know the WORD of GOD. I know it deep within. But, having said that, what I didn’t know is GOD in us is HIS word. He wants to LOVE us with it. He desires to HEAL us with it. There is a balm is Gilead. There is healing in HIS hands.

 

 

The things in this world will look really bad. Darkness will call, and sometimes we will answer. But, I am very thankful to GOD alone that, even when we do, HIS LOVE will not end. Yes, we may not feel it the same way, until we come to HIM in TRUTH and realness seeking HIS FORGIVENESS.

 

 

I used to speak of GOD resurrecting me. In fact, I would say daily that He does this. But somehow over the last few months, I had forgotten that He does this in sorrow too.  I am beyond words grateful for the brothers and sisters who reach out even when the darkness is thick. Those who take time to cut through all the rigamortis.

 

 

God is using many people. He is, in this season. He is even using people trapped and confined in darkness. For a few days, I didn’t post anything. Because, I didn’t have anything nice to say. I simply prayed silently. Most often not even knowing. I was reminded that sometimes the most effective prayers come in the form of tears.

Years ago when mom passed into God’s arms, I wrote a power. It was called “the Rainbows”

I don’t remember much about it, except this. It was written after seeing my first double rainbow. I remember looking at it and recognizing the reflection. It is an illusion, that comes from fragments of light. Yet, it is beautiful. It captures just how we look in reflection to GOD. Backwards, faded, yet Glorious in His LIGHT. ~ like a mother and a child….or a father and a child. WE are the FAMILY of GOD.

 

 

This morning, shortly after God woke me, I got a phone call. I didn’t answer. I simply handed it to my husband. David, though half asleep answered. The person said they had the wrong number. I thought, “wow that is what happens when GOD takes the phone call.” It was something so simple yet, so profound. when the enemy calls, GOD says, “wrong number.”

 

 

Many people in ministry, well meaning people kept telling me to read the word every day. Yet, I couldn’t focus. I couldn’t read. I couldn’t even listen. I could just watch. I could just stare. I could just be. All I kept hearing from GOD was this. “Rest my child. REST in me.”

 

 

For days, until yesterday in fact, when David and i prayed at night, only HE would pray. I would simply agree. Even last night I could barely come up with anything to say. So, I mumbled, thank you.

 

 

I hope somehow in the midst of this nothingness, this darkness, GOD is still using us. I have wondered how He could? Yet, again I know that NOTHING is impossible for HIM. I thank GOD for reminding me that she, our butterfly is not gone. She is simply more hidden than before.

 

 

I thank HIM for the honor of being able to shoulder pain for others, even while walking through the Valley of the Shadow o Death. I thank GOD that in the time where I could have caused great harm, I did not. I forgive the many people involved, because even if they think they knew what they were trying to do, they did not.

I CAN LOVE AGAIN

THE DEAD WILL NOT CREATE DEFEAT

IT IS ONLY THOSE WHO LOVE FROM HEAVEN

WHO WILL MAKE THIS WORLD COMPLETE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

GOD walked with me, hand in hand for 18 days. He was with me in bed as I just sat and often wept. He broke me out of many a prison. Thank GOD for HIS Grace, mercy and love to endure even the darkest most cavernous darkness.

Thank you for the sunshine. Thank you for the rain. Thank you for the JOY. Thank you for the pain. Thank you that YOU alone have overcome, again.

REMEMBER that GOD never promised NO PAIN and SUFFERING in the PROmISED LAND. He simply said, the promises are kept there. ~

 

 

 

DARKNESS will CALL. LET GOD Answer.

 

 

I have wanted to scream, but couldn’t. I have wanted to curse GOD, but wouldn’t. I have wanted to HATE, but cannot. Because deep within I know that when darkness calls, even on the phone, that GOD will overcome. He already has. We simply must receive it.

In His grace and GLORY,

E and Family

Seek HIS Face, and NOT His hand

This morning is the 25th of January. The number 25 represents BLESSING. Oh my we are in NEED of that as HIS COGS. The number 1 is New Beginnings. So we are in the month of new beginnings. Many people look at us wondering why we have JOY. They ask why are you Jubilant? Perhaps, because they don’t understand the TRUE JOY of GOD. It is NOT based on circumstances. It is based on HIS LOVE, and how much of it WE are willing to receive.

Lions_Eyes_ezr

Our family chooses daily to become SATURATED in the LOVE of GOD. It is the most AMAZING, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, PRECIOUS, HEALING, PHENOMENAL, INDESCRIBABLE gift that we can enjoy. It is FREE for us to receive because JESUS, the son of GOD and our brother, died on a CROSS over 2,000 years ago. He did this so HIS seed could be planted once again. It was planted when He was birthed as a human. Birthing can happen so many times. He is birthed again through us, HIS brothers and sisters daily as well.

GOD is NOT limited by ANYTHING!!!! Yesterday, I was really being challenged. My earthly father passed from this earth. The challenge came in seeing how everyone responded. When people pass on, no one knows how to take it. We stand not in judgement in any way, shape of form. Because we know how it feels to be judged. We simply keep praying and praising. GOD will finally change things. When He does it will be JUST the time it is needed. He is ALWAYS on time. God is never early, or late. HE alone is perfect!!!

6874113cc7e665882faf39b1ff85f4c5 small_9a6d882650b843b7899070fd seek-my-face1

I thank GOD that even though it looks like the enemy is winning, he is NOT!!!!!! I am not a religious person. I don’t look at the situation and try and always make it about GOD. It just IS about HIM. So, no matter how people think He can be removed, He cannot. People may look at me or us and think we do this, but the fact is GOD just keeps our focus on HIM. When we begin to receive that WE are truly LOVED and we cannot earn HIS grace, mercy or peace which comprise HIS LOVE, then and ONLY then can we walk in HIS FREEDOM!!!!!!!!

SO, I personally repent for myself and others in the body of Christ. We have been and many are being affected by things surrounding them or  others around them, and also for allowing my focus to be removed from GOD, even for a moment. I ask HIM to forgive me and release me from burdens I don’t need to try and carry. I come out of agreement with ANY offenses.  I choose today to stay DIVORCED from the enemy of our souls. In Jesus Holy name and blood we affirm our GOD who is comprised of our Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. GLORY to our mighty and awesome GOD!!!!! IJN AMEN

We_must_seek_His_face our-lives-are-in-the-hands-of-god

We have to seek HIS face and NOT His hand. God is not here to give us a hand out. He is here to give us a hand UP out of the pit. Will you take HIS hand and climb out of the quicksand??? This is a daily act and sometimes moment to moment as well. Please FORGIVE yourself and all the people the enemy has used to wound you. It begins with just that one thing. When we choose forgiving GOD moves so mightily?

Don’t we ALL need something Glorious to happen? DO you not know how much GOD wants that too? He LOVES  LOVES LOVES to bless us, HIS kids. DEATH is not the end of everything. It is simply like high school to college. It is similar to traveling abroad to a NEW land. It is a NEW start and a NEW BEGINNING and more work than we could ever imagine in the holiest of ways, as that new life starts. When we truly understand that WE are already dead in CHRIST in the sense that, WE died with HIM, we fear NOT any DEATH. WE are ALIVE in HIM because HE LIVES in US and we have the JOY of being resurrected through HIM as well.

We have seen Resurrections and been them. Our eyes cannot ever be the same. Our prayer is that GOD reveal HIS truth to the many who are locked into deception. We have been there, and still surrender daily. We are NOT in any way better than anyone else. GOD is though, and HE alone will turn situations around. GOD does not HAVE to include us. He simply does because HE LOVES US!!!!!

So are you seeking HIS FACE so that YOU will recognize it? Because soon THAT will be even more necessary than it used to be. The windows of HIS GLORY are open for everyone wanting to receive. BUT, there will be a time when HIS windows close. LORD, have your way in our lives. Teach us more and more about who YOU are and transform us in the process.

In HIS Spirit and TRUTH

Now it would be so easy for us to give credit to the enemy from a place of bitterness, and pain. We have seen many just locked in prisons, some who know and some who do not.  But the fact is, the victory is in HIS LOVE!!!! It is through praising GOD!!!! We have been those people locked up within ourselves.

It was and IS His LOVE, Grace, Mercy and PEACE. We have been enjoying in HIM lots of LOVE and LAUGHTER which is just beautiful. Are the spirits mad? Well, YES. But, that is ok. I and my husband do fall down, and spiritually skin our knees. But, that does NOT mean GOD LOVES us any less. In fact, HIS discipline comes from the most beautiful place ever. It is because HE LOVES us, HIS children, HIS precious COGS. (Children of God Supers)

It is TIME to WORSHIP in spirit and truth. DEATH is not the final destiny. Death cannot stop TRUE LOVE!!! There is no LOVE more TRUE than that of our mighty GOD!!!! Hallelujah!!!! He is faithful!!!

There are many who have a form of godliness but not much truth therein. We have people who are in a family that are so bound up by unforgiveness.  This causes constant tension, and constant STRIFE.  The same people who used to offer in kindness and LOVE, to help and assist, have become so wounded that they just don’t even bother anymore.

LORD, bind up all of our wounds, of every single person who is willing to receive it. Many of us have given and given and given, and we have forgotten to receive. It is like we have forgotten how. I ask you awesome GOD to remind us. Because when we are not receiving and not giving we are simply exisiting.  Which is really not honoring to GOD, and it is not much different from just being zombies.

I thank GOD and praise HIM for even this kind of persecution coming out. So many are thinking they are ok, and settled and cannot be touched. But GOD. Soon, you will see that if you do not sincerely worsip HIM in spirit and truth, and DRINK Him in, through communion with HIM, only destruction will find you.

John 4:23-24 ESV

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Matthew 15:9 ESV

In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’”

Hebrews 13:15 ESV

Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.

John 4:23 ESV

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.

Revelation 20:4 ESV

Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

 

Revelation 13:8 ESV

And all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.

WE are NEW creations in Christ!!!! So are we gonna BE just that, or hold onto the OLD? Because THIS is what happens when FATHER GOD makes us new through HIS son and our brother JESUS and the Holy Spirit.

In our lives it would be easier to choose pain, but in actuality when you begin to see that ONLY more pain follows the “easiest choice” becomes what looks like the HARDEST one.

Choose to worship HIM in SPIRIT and TRUTH. When we worship through HIM then and ONLY then does HIS GLORY totally reign down.

In His Grace and Glory,

E and Fam
