I know I need to share this. Because, I was made to obey GOD. But, I need to be upfront and tell you, this is tough for me. Thankful for His amazing and unending Grace. It ends for those who are disobedient and blatantly rebellious, but NOT for His faithful ones. I started the post on the 5th. I was suddenly led, after the first two sentences to stop. Then, to pick back up on the 7th. The day of Holy completion.
The ministry for God’s Grace Faces Us, is not solely David and our family’s. It belongs to God. WE have been gifted to steward it. There are many ministries that carry the names of the people who began them. Or, who it appears began them anyway. 😉 Because God is truly sovereign. He is active in ALL things. His hand, whether it looks like it or not, is in everything.
In this healing and deliverance ministry we have battled ourselves. Not just others, and not just the enemy. Instead of laying ourselves down, so that the flesh could be crucified, WE chose to fight what seemed to be self, but also was God. David and I can confess that, and say to you readers, that we did and often do repent for places where we falter. Many people say they do this. But, I urge you to test the fruit. Ask God to Cleanse, Purify and Sanctify you, so that you can SEE through HIS eyes.
It is fascinating to me that the post is called Divine Intervention. That is happening ALL over the place. There are some who came under the covering of God, even recently. They had car accidents, and some have broken things on the car. But, THEY still stand. These people were unharmed. So for those who don’t believe. Can you tell me how that happened? You could say luck, but there really is no such thing. You could say fate, but that is just another word for divine orchestration and intervention. The truth is this; GOD is not dead and HE is fighting for HIS children.
We read Job 41 the other day. If you look at the biblical meaning of 41 it is incredible. This whole chapter is about how GOD fights for us, to the very end. He fights for the children who choose HIM, His ways, and are HIS obedient and faithful ones. It isn’t that He does not fight for those who disobey on purpose. IT is simply different, because God offers help. We do NOT have to take it. We have a choice. But, having tried it both ways to some degree, I can say HIS way is the only way that actually works.
I am going to share a testimony. First off, my husband just had his 41st birthday. So this number was already forefront. We have had a few times this year where we “lost” things. In fact, would say that WE have endured a lot of what this world sees as LOSS. However, in the midst God has been bringing healing and refinement. There was a time with the gas company where we endured a lot of persecution. God redeemed the time. David called in to pay the bill. IT was 41 dollars. God took us that day to the job 41 chapter.
Job 41 Amplified Bible (AMP)
41 Can you draw out the leviathan (the crocodile) with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord?
2 Can you put a rope into his nose? Or pierce his jaw through with a hook or a spike?
3 Will he make many supplications to you [begging to be spared]? Will he speak soft words to you [to coax you to treat him kindly]?
4 Will he make a covenant with you to take him for your servant forever?
5 Will you play with [the crocodile] as with a bird? Or will you put him on a leash for your maidens?
6 Will traders bargain over him? Will they divide him up among the merchants?
7 Can you fill his skin with harpoons? Or his head with fishing spears?
8 Lay your hand upon him! Remember your battle with him; you will not do [such an ill-advised thing] again!
9 Behold, the hope of [his assailant] is disappointed; one is cast down even at the sight of him!
10 No one is so fierce [and foolhardy] that he dares to stir up [the crocodile]; who then is he who can stand before Me [the beast’s Creator, or dares to contend with Me]?
11 Who has first given to Me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heavens is Mine. [Therefore, who can have a claim against God, God Who made the unmastered crocodile?]
12 I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame.
13 Who can strip off [the crocodile’s] outer garment? [Who can penetrate his double coat of mail?] Who shall come within his jaws?
14 Who can open the doors of his [lipless] mouth? His [extended jaws and bare] teeth are terrible round about.
15 His scales are [the crocodile’s] pride, [for his back is made of rows of shields] shut up together [as with] a tight seal;
16 One is so near to another that no air can come between them.
17 They are joined one to another; they stick together so that they cannot be separated.
18 His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are like the [reddish] eyelids of the dawn.
19 Out of his mouth go burning torches, [and] sparks of fire leap out.
20 Out of his nostrils goes forth smoke, as out of a seething pot over a fire of rushes.
21 His breath kindles coals, and a flame goes forth from his mouth.
22 In [the crocodile’s] neck abides strength, and terror dances before him.
23 The folds of his flesh cleave together; they are firm upon him, and they cannot shake [when he moves].
24 His heart is as firm as a stone, indeed, as solid as a nether millstone.
25 When [the crocodile] raises himself up, the mighty are afraid; because of terror andthe crashing they are beside themselves.
26 Even if one strikes at him with the sword, it cannot get any hold, nor does the spear, the dart, or the javelin.
27 He counts iron as straw and bronze as rotten wood.
28 The arrow cannot make [the crocodile] flee; slingstones are treated by him as stubble.
29 Clubs [also] are counted as stubble; he laughs at the rushing and the rattling of the javelin.
30 His underparts are like sharp pieces of broken pottery; he spreads [grooves like] a threshing sledge upon the mire.
31 He makes the deep boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a [foaming] pot of ointment.
32 [His swift darting] makes a shining track behind him; one would think the deep to be hoary [with foam].
33 Upon earth there is not [the crocodile’s] equal, a creature made without fear and he behaves fearlessly.
34 He looks all mighty [beasts of prey] in the face [without terror]; he is monarch over all the sons of pride. [And now, Job, [a]who are you who dares not arouse the unmastered crocodile, yet who dares resist Me, the beast’s Creator, to My face? Everything under the heavens is Mine; therefore, who can have a claim against God?]
This chapter ends with 34 verses. Biblically 34 is naming of a son. It is God’s way of claiming JOB. He is firm but loving with him. Saying, “My son, you cannot do my job. Do not even try, you will fail. ” That is not the exact wording, and I am not attempting to reword anything. I am simply sharing what I know. I have this heart knowledge because like Job, He has admonished us like this.
See, brothers and sisters. WE can get influenced by arrogance, pride and even cockiness. Because, we are NOT infallible. Only God is. he alone is the only ONE who is immune to being affected by spirits. So, when we are hidden within HIM, He guards us. The Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus, and the Glorious Holy spirit are the shield to block out the effects of the darkness.
We ALL have experienced FEAR. Think about as a child when you were afraid of the dark. You did not know what was there. You may have even had a parent come in and clear out the monsters. But, here is the question that is being posed; Did they? Or, did it just appear that the monsters left. The ONLY one who can clear out spirits is GOD. It is through JESUS that healing takes place.
So, if your parents did not call upon God to do it, it really was not done. For years, this has been an awful pattern. We have been led to share about anointing oil. Our spiritual guardians, a man and His wife that God brought in to basically keep David and I settled and fastened to God, showed us something Heavenly. That OIL, specifically anointing oil is the only tangible weapon that is of HEAVEN. It is gifted to us, as protection, and to honor God. I cannot tell you how many times we have shared with people to use oil. Some do and some don’t. But, those who do, have WAY more peace. We have suggested doing communion with God to others. To do so means complete surrender. God doesn’t mind if it is bread and water. He just wants your hearts all in.
We will not make these suggestions to anyone without doing them ourselves. God deserves honor. I mean LOOK around at ALL He does. It is seemingly easy to spot evil in the world. In fact, many focus on it. But we choose to focus on GOD forming GLORY. Which He absolutely is. Everytime our “logic” that the world has taught us tries to impede the process, God intervenes. You know why? Because WE don’t try and stop HIM.
Some have looked at us, and tried to manipulate what the fruit is. I say to them, “WE forgive you and speak HIS blessings upon you. I urge you to say you are sorry to God. That is what repentance is. It is saying you are sorry and meaning it. IT is having a desire to never ever take that path again.” It is NOT about saying yes to be popular, or telling people that no matter what path you take it’s the same God. It is NOT. That is a lie. There is only ONE path to Heaven. It is through JESUS Christ of Nazareth. Jesus leads us to the Holy Spirit and Heavenly Father. It is holy 3 in one. It is JESUS who was gifted the honor of the human journey. It is HE that we can relate to most. However, as WE surrender ALL, we begin to SEE that it is also the holy union within the 3 that brings us to completion, to a place of holy perfection and divine wisdom and knowledge.
Without FAITH it is impossible to please God. So, what is your FAITH in? Is it in the one who made you? Is it is the fact that you have got things covered? Cause, you don’t and no one else does either. Only GOD can cover you. We can come into agreement with God using us to do so. We have that privilege, because we are COVENANT keepers. Our pastor spoke of THIS very thing on Sunday.
The world appears to be going to “Hell in a handbasket.” But is it? God has a plan. HIS plan will work. Thankfully, no matter what, HE gets His way. There is a HUGE revival hitting the land. We have spoken of Heaven invading earth. This is most definitely happening. Divine intervention is ALL over the place. the windows that seemed open for those choosing other gods, are closing fast. My heart often aches for them. I have been them before, to some degree. But, thank GOD for HIS process. He never took HIS hand off me. He never left me. He wept with me, screamed with me, and watched me bring harm to my body. But, He also was there, when I said “I am sorry. I never meant harm to a soul. Not even to myself. Forgive me mighty God. Create in me a clean heart and renew your spirit, a right spirit within me. Reignite the FIRE for righteousness. Thank you for loving me. “
I am reflecting a lot today. We tell our story, and like when Jesus told HIS, “Some just don’t get it.” But, we rejoice because SOME do. We are grateful every single day. We are experiencing MORE JOY than we ever have. It is NOT because of our circumstances. In fact, if we looked at that, we could just sit and stay in grief and mourning. But, the reason it IS available is because GOD is close to the broken hearted. He holds us and rocks us in HIS beautiful arms of GRACE and MERCY. He knows what has been endured. He knows we speak truth in HIM.
Never will we try and justify sin. It should not be justified. It should be stripped and extinguished. Because, we have sinned before. I would not say we necessarily sin daily. But, we do sometimes. Again, WE are not infallible or without flaws. His Grace does not give us a right to sin. WE have given up ALL rights to our mighty GOD. The Grace of God gives us the freedom to walk through the process, drive through it, run through it and fly through it on HIS eagle’s wings.
Do not misunderstand us. WE are very human. However, what was a major weakness in the humanity we experience, we see GOD transforming and turning into HIS strength. Recently as much so as yesterday, we experienced something really challenging. I won’t get into too much details about it. But, suffice it to say, it was designed to shoot us through the heart. Yet, our amazing brother JESUS came and wept with us. He came and put HIS hand on our heart. We experienced HIS healing. Such peace and holy stillness flooded us. Grateful that something meant to deter and distract us did not get roots. THAT IS DIVINE INTERVENTION INDEED.

In the eighteenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, Jehoram the son of Ahab became king over Israel in Samaria, and he reigned twelve years. He did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, though not like his father and mother, for he put away the pillar of Baal that his father had made. Nevertheless, he clung to the sin of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin; he did not depart from it. Now Mesha king of Moab was a sheep breeder, and he had to deliver to the king of Israel 100,000 lambs and the wool of 100,000 rams. But when Ahab died, the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.

Who has believed what he has heard from us? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.

And he came to the sheepfolds by the way, where there was a cave, and Saul went in to relieve himself. Now David and his men were sitting in the innermost parts of the cave. And the men of David said to him, “Here is the day of which the Lord said to you, ‘Behold, I will give your enemy into your hand, and you shall do to him as it shall seem good to you.’” Then David arose and stealthily cut off a corner of Saul’s robe. And afterward David’s heart struck him, because he had cut off a corner of Saul’s robe.

As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away with their donkeys. They had gone only a short distance from the city.

These verses are great examples of HIS Divine Intervention Yesterday, we were at church, one that God just moved us too. Finally someone wants what God is using us to offer. Thank you JESUS. Anyway, I met the worship pastor. I was thrilled to see it is a man. Because that is the way it should be. Not saying women cannot assist or help. But, MAN is the head under God. It should be that way. Women can be in leadership, but WE must be accountable too.
This church is Heaven sent. The worship pastor wants me to start in the choir. I am so excited because I asked God, “Keep us humble.” THIS is an answer to that prayer. Divine intervention. Yesterday, when I was introduced to the pastor over music, the whole electronic system went crazy. I thought, “WOW.” Because our GOD fights for us. That devil does not have a prayer, no matter how it seems. Because the enemy has lost. No desire to mock anyone here, just a fact. It is finished and soon ALL will see just how TRUE God’s word is. They will see here are consequences and penalties for even attempting to come against God. Soon, and very soon we are going to see HEAVEN. In His Grace and GLORY, E and Family
